This October, I’ll be starring in Swamp Meadow Community Theatre’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest as Randle Patrick McMurphy. This I’d my first leading role since I played The Boy in The Fantasticks in high school.
…One flew east, one flew west…
If you have seen the play before or if you have read the book, you know that this is quite different than the movie. While I like the idea of playing a role that Jack Nicholson made famous but ultimately, I am playing a very different character than he did.
To prepare for the part, I have been dieting and exercising a lot, practicing card tricks, and getting in touch with my inner sociopath. All very exciting!
Anyway, I am very excited and not a little nervous. So call the box office and reserve your tickets! Now!
