Image result for roy sexton edwin droodWOW! Thank you all for your support … THIS happened from BroadwayWorld Detroit: “Best Actor in a Musical – Roy SextonThe Mystery of Edwin Drood – Ann Arbor Civic Theatre.”

I’m absolutely honored beyond all belief. And congrats to Drood cast/crew-mates Kimberly Elliott, Molly Borneman, and TJ Johnson who also won in their respective categories.

Read the complete list here  – an amazing theatre experience working on this show that helped me rediscover my love of acting. Thank you to director Ron Baumanis for his guidance and leadership and for the opportunity. I adored this cast and crew. Their generosity and their talent and their heart taught me so much.

Life is a Cabaret

AND if you’re looking to support a great cause, eat some sweets, buy some fun stuff you don’t need, and enjoy a show tune … or eight, come to the cabaret February 7 (you might even hear me sing a few!). Here is a “trailer” for the performance as well as a clip of me rehearsing “This is the Life” from Golden Boy with our incredible music director Kevin Ryan!
