Cast & Production Team

It was there that he learned just how long the road to acting truthfully stretches. Since back in MA, he’s played “Homer” in “An American Night’s Dream”, a contemporary adaptation of the Shakespeare classic “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, as well as the role of “Fred” in an original BU film, “Trojan Horse”. When he’s not traveling between the coasts for commercial work he can be found posted up in a handful of dive bars writing his nights away.
