The show was developed with support by the Gracie Annabelle Fund for the Arts and the Rhode Island Foundation.

He recently performed in the acclaimed immersive show, The Girl who Handcuffed Houdini. Will regularly performs with his band Cardboard Rocketship throughout New York City. Company members Hood Adrain, and Ana Cristina Schuler will be performing and sharing direction alongside Kayla Yee, Alex Smith, Vincent Cinque, and Roxanne Quilty.
