Greco's first solo show, With Held, also directed by Mark Kenward, was based on six months of interviews with San Francisco mail artist and writer, John Held Jr. Greco performed it as part of the Marsh's Rising series, CounterPulse, San Francisco Fringe Festival, The Rogue Festival in Fresno and the Marin Fringe Festival, where Greco won a Critics' Circle Best Actor Award.

Thomas Gladysz of the Huffington Post said, "With Held is a quietly transformative work, insightful, compelling, humorous, and ripe with what the stage should always possess - pathos." -Huffington Post 9/9/2013. Read full article at huffingtonpost.com/thomas-gladysz

Other credits include playing Cousin Bubba on the Discovery ID television show, I (Almost) Got Away With It. Greco also penned The Thrilling Adventures of Elvis in Space and The Thrilling Adventures II: Elvis Rex, staring Stefanos X and directed by Margery Fairchild.
