HOLDING THE MAN 

I couldn't be happier to be making my New York debut tonight with such an important, powerful and personal play as 'Holding The Man'. 
Telling Tim and John's story has been such a cathartic experience, and I am so honoured to be bringing such a monumental piece of Australian theatre to New York for the first time. 
Holding The Man is being presented as a benefit for the Gay Mens Health Crisis.

HOLDING THE MAN NYC

I am extremely excited to be returning to New York City in the new year to be taking on the huge role of John Caleo in the NY reading of the Australian play, 'Holding The Man'. 
The mid-seventies: at an all-boys Catholic school in Melbourne, Timothy Conigrave falls wildly and sweetly in love with the captain of the football team, John Caleo. So begins a relationship that weathers disapproval, separation and, ultimately death. With honesty and insight 'Holding the Man' explores the strength of heart both men have to find when they test positive to HIV. This is a play as refreshing and uplifting as it is moving; a funny and sad and celebratory account of growing up gay.
Holding The Man is being presented as a benefit for the Gay Mens Health Crisis.

BWW Review: IRVING BERLIN'S HOLIDAY INN Kicks Off The Holiday Season With Style at Cumberland County Playhouse


Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn may seem as if it were lifted straight off the celluloid of a Universal Studios musical spectacle and set down in the middle a stage on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee

"This is a production of the musical that I would recommend heartily and without any caveat about this, that or the other thing. It’s just a “damn” good two and a half hours."

ANYTHING GOES

(OFF-BROADWAY)

Within 2 weeks of graduating from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, I've found myself working costumes on my very first Off-Broadway musical.
Working on Anything Goes (dir. Casey Colgan) for designer Jack Maisenbach was such a milestone in my costume career. It was great to take a break from performing, but now it's back into audition season and performing.

GRADUATION

I'd like to send out a huge thank you to the incredible staff and faculty of the American Musical and Dramatic Academy for nurturing my love for musical theatre and helping me hone my craft for the past 2 years.

Audition season, here I come!
