How did you find out about Barhoppers?
I was one of the founders of Offstage Theatre and the Barhoppers Series. This will make my sixth play in a Barhoppers. I'm sure Joel (Jones) has me beat though!
What is your most memorable bar experience?
I met my lovely and talented wife, Julie, in a bar. Life is sweet!
Beer, Wine, or Whiskey?
All of the above.
If you could share a drink with any figure from history who would it be and why?
Shakespeare - Get him drunk and steal some ideas!
Favorite theatrical experience?
Wow, so many great ones: my whole five years working with Offstage, the recent premiere of my play Veils at Portland Stage, my intern year at Actors Theater of Louisville, the recent production of my play Cry Havoc in South Africa, teaching playwriting in Egypt, but really my favorite memory in theatre was when Bert couldn't get his underwear and pants on right in the Offstage Bedroom Series...brilliant!
