I am very excited to announce that I will be appearing in a world premiere at the Magic Theater in February. The play carries the piquant title Pleasure and Pain, and was written by Chantal Bilodeau. It tells the story of one Peggy, a straight-laced woman with fantasies involving a cage, hot wax, and other various and sundry accoutrements. I will play "The Man", her fantasy guy, who is constantly goading her to take it further. The play opens February 10. More information on the Magic Theater website. Looking forward to girding my, uh, loins and heading into the breach!

An independent film built around a very simple story, beautifully acted and executed. One of the founders of Steppenwolf, Lois Smith, appears in the frame at the beginning and the end of the movie. The story concerns a mail-order bride from Norway immediately after WWI, played by the stunning Elizabeth Reaser. She is lucky enough to find the dashing and smoldering Olaf, played by Tim Guinnee, to be her husband, but bureacracy and xenophobia intervene to prevent them from marrying and, uh, consummating the love that grows between them. It is seldom that you see a film where the acting is as good as it is here all around.
