Seems I’m in a theatrical cycle at the moment gearing up for auditions and playing with puppets n stuff. Stay tuned however, there may be some more music-related events upcoming in the new year.

Being the creative type I am, I couldn’t just ask him the typical “what was it like to play Che in Evita?” or “Could you say your famous line from Princess Bride?” No, I have to come up with something memorable or clever that perhaps no one has asked.
