The View from Onstage: Don’t Be Like Peter Gnit

I played Peter Gnit in Vanderbilt University Theatre’s February production of Gnit in Neely Auditorium.

Romeo & Juliet 2017

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go see the play Romeo and Juliet for a 3rd time in my lifetime. Although the last two times were when I was in the 11th and 12th grade, witnessing this performance at the collegiate level has elevated my experience to allow me to grasp concepts…

R&J

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of seeing two productions in two days. I thought that I might be sick of the theater, but I was pleasantly wrong. On Saturday night I went to see Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare with the actors from the London stage. I attended this play at the…
