Making Multiple Encores Talking About Encore! on the Encore! Encore! Podcast With Ben Siemon and Hanna LoPatin!
Being a guest on this podcast was crazy awesome. Equally awesome was hanging with Brittany Kay Taylor and Vince Gatton from the Beauty and the Beast and Pippin Episodes. Being part of Encore has been one of the greatest gifts!
It's so interesting listening to someone you don't know talk about you. I've been excited AND scared to listen to this episode. I love the Encore! Encore Podcast's recaps of the other episodes. Maybe one day I'll be on it!
The timing couldnt have been more perfect. Rod and I were in California celebrating our anniversary, my stepdads birthday, and a needed vacation. Just by CHANCE, South Hills High School was doing Into the Woods again. A few of us from the Encore! cast reunited again and went to see the show. It was like full circle full circle. We performed the show in high school, re-performed it on Encore, then watched a whole new generation do it in the same theatre. The show was fantastic. The kids were fantastic. And I may have even cried a little. So much emotion from so many different things. Then, as a surprise, the teacher asked if we would like to speak to the drama classes. Two days later, Billy, Dan, and I talked about the encore experience, then I got to talk to the kids about working as an actor/writer in NYC.
This was such a fun night. The premiere night of Demon Doctor. Inspired by 90s genre shows like Buffy, The Vampire Slayer and The X-Files, Demon Doctor is an LGBT story about a portly demonologist and a detective who believes in the beyond teaming up to confront the mysteries lurking beneath the surface...
I play Detective Mark Besim, a detective who believes in the supernatural despite what his new demonologist contact says. Season one introduces some awesome monsters, some killer death scenes, and a fun love story. Its dark comic horror at its best and I am so happy to be a part of it.
