Every actor has his or her dream roles. And so few of us get the chance to play them. One of the parts I have coveted for years is John Adams in the great American musical, 1776, and after numerous auditions for various productions, I have the chance to play the role this summer! To capture and share the process of preparing this role, which I will be performing at Cape Playhouse in July, I have created this video blog!

There will be lots of historical research field trips, behind the scenes views of rehearsal and production and more, leading up to our opening on July 7! In this week's post, I get to introduce myself and this project to you, and offer a little crash course on this Tony winning musical. Join me for the adventure- you can expect lots of giddy enthusiasm, amateur videography, and theatrical fun!
