Jim played Major Cary in BUTLER!

Jim played Major Cary, a Confederate Army officer, in BUTLER. It's a fantastic new play by Richard Strand, staged at the Majestic Theatre in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Set in 1861, the play dramatizes a little-known but important event at the outbreak of the Civil War, when three runaway slaves escaped to a Union-held fort and demanded asylum. Excellently directed by Joe Discher.

Jim played Bottom in A Midsummer Night's Dream!

The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra teamed up with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey to create a mashup of the original A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM with Mendelssohn's symphony of the same name. Ten actors, directed by Bonnie J. Monte, played all the roles while a sixty-piece orchestra was conducted by Jacques Lacombe. Jim played Bottom, a working man who is turned into a donkey by a mischievous fairy. Later Bottom himself performs in a play-within-the-play:

Jim played Shakespeare in EQUIVOCATION

 The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey presented EQUIVOCATION by Bill Cain, Sept. 16 to Oct. 4, 2015.  A fascinating and engaging look at the creation of one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, the play explores what might have happened if the British government had commissioned him to write the "true history" of the infamous Gunpowder Plot.  Jim played the man himself, Shakespeare, in this play called "Shag."  The New York Times called his portrayal "touching."
