Hadestown. 
I’ve been blessed to join some special projects in my career, and this one is a sensation! 
It is a gift when you get to work on material that you believe in, that you respect, that you admire. It’s sometimes rare (among the multitude of auditions and projects, of readings and hustle...) so the significance of this gift is not lost on me. To be able to do just that within Hadestown thrills me.

In an emphatic way, I get to close the door on a long, painful, learning, and trusting period of injury, recovery, and healing. (Hallelu!) And to be able to open the next chapter with a show that I love— it’s a type of gratitude that I am still searching for language to reflect. 
Simply put: I’ve grown. I feel stronger than before, with more clarity, and with a grounded comfort of the many ways I get to contribute to and influence an industry that I am so passionate about. (Thank you God! ... and also Mark: my therapist... and also Bradley: my love, my support, and my fiancé... and my friends and community for SHOWING UP for me) 
I share these words because I hope it is a forwarding message to some body. I didn’t want to go through this journey; I didn’t want the pain; I didn’t want the depression; I didn’t want the doubt. But you can either spiral in your circumstance, or you can show up for your possibility. (Because faith is the evidence of things unseen)

The huddle you see in this picture is quiet. Our final curtain came down, and the musical playoff continued, but there we stood in silence, clinging to each other for what felt like dear life.

Over the past 11 months, this group of miraculous humans formed a beautiful, vivacious, passionate, spirited, indestructible, loving, and above all, indelible chosen family.  We have held each other in dark times of need, and lifted each other up in celebration and light just the same.  It has truly been the greatest honor to share the past year with such an unbelievable team, and I look back on our adventures both in and out of the shtetl we’ve built with only love.  Our Anatevka has been the constant in our insane, nomadic lives, and that is because of the unique gifts each and every person contributed to the perfect recipe of this dear little village. I could not imagine it any other way.  My friends, wherever or whenever you may need, I am, and this home is, here for you always.  I love you and I will miss you, for you will forever be my family, my shtetl, my Anatevka.

#tbt The day before my final audition for the tour of @beautifulonbway in 2017, when @belljordan ran all five scenes with me in the park & snapped this photo. It was 2 years ago this week that I began rehearsals in NYC before joining the company in Toronto. It was my first National Tour, first time as a Swing, and first time visiting many of the places we toured to over my 21 months. 49 US and 6 Canadian cities (only repeat was Toronto), 53 flights, 28 states (17 new to me) and 4 provinces, and 170 performances in 5 tracks. Swinging is the most difficult and rewarding job I’ve ever had, and it taught me heaps about myself. There’s nothing quite like the mix of elation and panic when stepping onto a new stage in costumes you don’t wear every day, surrounded by people who perform their parts 8 times a week and being the odd one out. Being a swing can be a difficult pill to swallow sometimes: not guaranteed any shows, not performing opening or closing, not being in press photos, not knowing what any day could hold, many people not knowing what on earth a swing is... but the rewards are plentiful, too: getting to watch the show from every possible angle, seeing the entire forest AND each of the trees, never feeling “over it”, being involved in rehearsals with new cast members, feeling like a boss when you finally master your tracks (even if no one is watching), and having unclaimed time backstage (for working out, visiting, reading, organizing trunk, you name it) when not needed. Those respites come in handy because when you’re on, you’re majorly on as a swing, since you don’t have the momentum or stamina of doing the show every day. Add to that major task the other component of touring. There were times I didn’t think I could do another travel day, but I guess the wanderlust in me was curious enough to get to the next place and see what beauty there was to be found (documented city by city over at @travellingbroad!) that I stuffed those packing cubes, weighed that damn bag and carried on. It was one hell of a trip and I’m forever grateful. It’s also been freaking phenomenal to stay in one place all summer and give the zipper on my suitcase a break ❤️

I’m so thrilled to finally share that I’ll be hitting the road on the First Broadway National Tour of The Spongebob Musical where I’ll be covering Pearl Krabs, Mrs. Puff, the Mayor, and Karen the computer, as well as the women’s dance ensemble!! Some of the first memories I have center around me and my Dad having Saturday afternoon tea parties while giggling to Spongebob Squarepants, and it’s truly a dream come true to be touring a show that not only sparks the craziest nostalgia and unadulterated joy, but has such important messages throughout, when I believe we as a society could use them most. I am beyond honored to be working with this Creative Team alongside a cast with such positive, supportive energy - We’ll be stopping in 38+ cities over the course of the next year, and I cannot WAIT to see so many familiar faces and brand new spaces!! I’m absolutely jazzed to get into the *female* swing of things here in Bikini Bottom!!! 🐋🐡🐠🖥🐳🐬🐟 #thespongebobmusical #swingnation

For the last six months, I've had the absolute pleasure being a swing for the most heartwarming, delightful, intelligent, and humorous show ever. @puffsplay has been on my "holy crap how do I get involved with this show" list since I saw it four years ago. I'm super humbled, after all these years, to be able to call these silly folks my family. I'm gonna miss you all and our little basement. Happy closing friends! Puff hug!! 💛🦡

CLOC is a truly crazy place. Tonight at 6pm, we found out that one of our amazing VC was too sick to do the show. She’ll be fine by tomorrow but we had our open dress rehearsal tonight and no time to reassign everyone’s track. 
I’m so grateful to @iancweber  and @tulipofdutch and the rest of the cast for welcoming me into their song with open arms and making me feel safe onstage in their show. Thank you to @thezyking for rehearsing me and being a star conductor. And thank you to @carlynjade for gifting me with the opportunity to bop out and sing the infamous “bow”. Can’t wait to see you shine tomorrow. 💜

I was very fortunate to be a swing in @puffsplay for the past nine months. Everyone I worked with was a dream, like genuinely the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and the show is incredibly special. I didn’t post about it a lot, because honestly I was afraid I’d jinx it. Congrats to everyone involved on its closing night. 💛💛💛

Nothing like popping into a track that you’ve only done twice and after not performing it for nearly 3 months! Talk about excitement, terror, a practice of trust, focus, patience & forgiveness of oneself and one hell of an adrenaline rush! Being a swing can be hard AF y’all but I’m so happy that I finally got to be the Demeter to this sexy powerhouse of a Bombalurina before she leaves the kitty tour. And I’m also so lucky to have a supportive and encouraging cast, helping me work my way through the kitty litter 💩 ... I mean Junkyard 🤪. I’m truly grateful for their love, kindness... and forgiveness. #shovewithlove 🐯🔥🦊🐾

This show has given me so many gifts that I will never be able to repay. Most of all, the chance to be on stage with my wife for the first time in 20 years.

It has been a bit of a wild week here on the island. We have had lots of swings understudies and covers going on. The cast, crew and creatives have been great at making it as smooth as could be hoped for. It has been my great pleasure to get to play opposite @brittanyybanks as Rosie. She is a Dynamo! .

You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for.
•
Now that I know my tracks, debuted all of my tracks, been swung on mid show, done a split track show, and all the craziness that is my job - the work doesn’t stop. I am learning how to maintain all of the work I put into learning each track now that I don’t have rehearsal as often. I am learning how to maintain a healthy life style so that when I am in the show, my body is ready.

Show up and show out every day. Every. Damn. Day.

Here it is... Our final week here at @kingkongbway. 😭❤️
Tonight (Wednesday eve) is my final planned show to swing on. It’s been an absolute joy performing with this diverse company and presenting something so innovative and epic to Broadway.🥰
•
While I’ll miss performing with this hard working company of superheroes... what I’ll miss most of all is being in the house, hearing the audience delight in the beauty and majesty that is Kong. If you don’t make it out tonight, you only have until this coming Sunday to catch the wonder of King Kong! 👑🦍❤️

I love words.  Ask literally anyone who has ever met me.

But, sometimes you can’t find the words to capture a thing because it’s too big.

Here are the words I do have:

I’m going to make my Broadway debut in Tina - The Tina Turner Musical

I am overwhelmed with love and gratitude for those who helped make this possible
