Shortly after the final performance of Broken Nose Theatre's inaugural hit My First Time, Artistic Director Benjamin Brownson cast me in the staged reading of his world-premiere play Beautiful Broken. With rehearsals for the reading beginning today, Ben and Broken Nose co-founder Scott Johnston have also invited me to be a company member! I am one of three new recruits -- marketing guru Matthew Sitz and actress Leslie Ruettiger round out the trio. Many thanks to Broken Nose, a young company with what I believe is a bright, exciting future.

I will also continue to serve as Literary Manager (and self-appointed Web Master) for Hobo Junction Productions, another Chicago-based theater company, dedicated to the development and production of world-premiere comedies.
