Another Rushmore

One my great joys as an actor is working with amazing playwrights on new works. This month I performed the lead role in a three-day reading of the newest work by Allan Knee, Another Rushmore. Allan is one of America’s best playwrights. His works include Little WomenThe Jazz AgeThe Man Who was Peter Pan (on which the movie Finding Neverland was based). Another Rushmore follows a Times Square street artist (specifically a miniaturist), Leonard, who has received a commission to create a work of public art. Leonard’s idea is to sculpt Another Rushmore. After three productions with Allan, I understand more clearly how his characters think and act. The humor and joy that are abundant in his characters comes more and more easily to me, and it a blast to play.
