“Take me to a world where I can be alive” – thoughts on Stephen Sondheim

Stephen Sondheim’s passing hit me harder than I even had thought it might. I have been privileged to play BOTH Bobby and Buddy (from Company and Follies respectively): two sides of the same male-arrested-development coin.

It’s been too long. I needed this. Thrilled to revisit a concept my mom Susie Sexton and dad Don Sexton first suggested to The Penny Seats five (!) years ago. They had an acclaimed award-winning run, if I recall. Honored to be able to appear in it this go ‘round. Such a phenomenal cast and […]

Alchemic, essential, transfixing: Theatre NOVA’s latest Play of the Month … The W.I.T.C.H
