Saturday June 9th I'm singing Billy Bigelow's Soliloquy from the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic Carousel! I hope you can make it!
You can have fun with a son, but you gotta be a father to a girl.

If you're not familiar with "Soliloquy," sung by Billy Bigelow at the end of Act 1 of Carousel, it's one of the great baritone solos of the 20th Century. Bigelow is a carny, living hand-to-mouth as an entertainer until his wife gets pregnant. "Soliloquy" is the process of him realizing he's about to be responsible for a baby.
So... it means a lot to me :), and I'm grateful to get to perform it in public for the first time at this event! I hope you can make it.
Ps... We're raffling off two Disney passes at the concert, a $270 value could be yours for as little as $5! To enter without attending, e-mail email@example.com.

Above you can watch a bit of my guest appearance in Tony Foster's juggernaut Come Back in Serial Killers at Sacred Fools. It was great fun to jump back into some sketch comedy for a night!
Next week I start a school tour with Laguna Playhouse, playing Stuart Little! Finally something my 5-year-old can see! No public performances, but look forward to pictures of my enormous ears, coming soon!
We're hoping for some big announcements for Daddy Drinks in the coming months! If you already love the book, please add your review on Amazon, it helps us out a lot! If you haven't shared it with your favorite dad, what are you waiting for?!?
Ain't gonna be no trouble, no fights. Nobody ever gonna hurt nobody, or steal from 'em. It's gonna be nice.

George Milton won't never leave me on the inside, though Of Mice and Men at North Coast Rep has just 5 more performances. I'm so grateful to Artistic Director David Ellenstein, Director Richard Baird, my scene partner Nicholas Mongiardo-Cooper, and the cast, crew, volunteers, patrons, and critics for their support.
