Tommy is cast in the Midwest Premiere of REALLY REALLY
It's my pleasure to announce I've been cast in the Midwest Premiere of Paul Downs Colaizzo's
directed by James Yost of
!NTERROBANG Theatre Project
in association with Chicago's Athenaeum Theatre. I'll be playing the role of Jimmy.
In the hazy aftermath of a wild campus party, dawn breaks on what appears to be just another day in the undergrad carnival that revolves around a circle of friends. But when morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, the veneer of loyalty and friendship is peeled back to reveal a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive.
“It’s Lord of the Flies with smartphones...a take-no-prisoners indictment of the young men and women poised to inherit the earth.”
–Ben Brantley, The New York Times
"Unexpected and thrilling.”
–New York Observer

Two men, separated by two continents, are being drawn together by a faceless and undefined movement in this high concept sci-fi drama. Coupled with the political fallout surrounding Jon and Ernesto’s covert research and the collapse of their personal lives, both attempt to regain balance in their everyday lives. In the background, the fate of civilization’s future energy infrastructure looms. I play the lead, Jake Zachary, an integral part of the energy movement.
