I don't know that I've ever put this down...

And really, only theatre geeks will know what the hell I'm talking about...

There's several roles that, were I actually active in theatre still, I'd love to play. Since I'm not especially active in theatre, it seems exceedingly unlikely that I'll play them, but still, a guy can dream.

• Mr. Applegate (the devil) in "Damn Yankees"
• John Barrymore in "I Hate Hamlet"
• John Adams in "1776"
• Henry in "The Lion in Winter" (although I'm way too young right now. I have played him in a few scenes for student directors in college, though)
• George in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
• Jonathan Waxman in "Sight Unseen" (I did a cold reading of this role for a Chicago area theatre group that was trying to pick their next season. They wound up not doing it, but I think the read was some of the best acting I ever did.)

So. If any of my theatre peeps out there decide to direct or produce one of these shows, do let me know when auditions are, won't you?

    I miss California tremendously. I'm working on getting back there permanently. That is all (for now).
