A Victorian Eye
I recently appeared in A Victorian Eye, a new play by Rory Fellowes (brother of the Downton Abbey creator and screenwriter Julian Fellowes,) which opened on July 30th 2013 at the Jermyn Street Theatre in London.
A Victorian Eye is a celebration of the life and work of the 19th century artist Sir William Blake Richmond, R.A. This one-man show explores WBR’s prolific output as a painter, sculptor, and mosaicist, and dramatizes some of the private relationships and public struggles that influenced his long and remarkable career.
Perhaps WBR’s towering achievement is the 13-year design and execution of the mosaics that decorate the quire of St Paul’s Cathedral in London, a project for which he revived ancient decorative techniques from the Byzantine Empire. Although under-appreciated by many in his day, WBR considered this work to be his masterpiece.
I spend much of my time in Chicago – Carl Sandburg’s proud “City of the Big Shoulders”, a place of stunning architecture, and an incomparably diverse and vibrant theatre scene.
I’ve worked in big commercial theatres and tiny storefronts, in Chicago and across the Midwest. I have worked on-camera or as a voiceover talent in commercial and industrial projects for major companies including Philip Morris, Accenture, Kraft, Motorola, United Airlines, and Abbott Laboratories.
