I worked on the development and production of many, many shows at The Public Theater during two exciting stints with George C. Wolfe.I've been mostly focused on film and television recently, but the theater will always be my hometown.

I've recently been developing some new projects as Artistic Producer of
MIDTOWN DIRECT REP (MDR) in South Orange/Maplewood, NJ, an ensemble-based company with over 100 Broadway actors, including a number of Tony Award winners and nominees.

Here are highlights from a benefit for MDR called Let It Sing! that I conceived and directed in December 2015.



Some favorites from the past:
