OMG, Thank You Hollywood Reporter for my mention on the eve of Season 2 Bloodline! “Vicente Cruz” mentioned as one of the things to look out for.
I find the writing in Bloodline to be among the best on television today (humble opinion). I find its stars to be terrific people, funny and hard working. Anything you could ever want in a show is fully present and accounted for. It’s a pleasure to work and learn from Kyle Chandler and Enrique Murciano.
“But unless you watched (or re-watched) the first season far more recently than when it debuted 14 months ago, you might not remember some of the more intricate details and subplots, which resurface in the second season. For instance, do you...
This is alarming. I have family members that behave in the same way as Zimabardo (of Stanford Prison Experiment fame) describes below. In a nutshell, the internet’s ability to supply constant and almost instantaneous novelty in all fields is opaquing our ability to socialize in orthodox ways for lasting relationships.
It’s a chocolate, Haagen Dazs Friday night.
Watching dystopias on Amazon Prime
my family 2500 miles due south
at the far end of a horse continent
on a latitude that allows for indoor
ice skating rinks where Disney characters
sing away their pirouetted pain.
Better put the ice-cream back before I eat the whole pint.
Don’t want to start crying now, so I’ll take a Benadryl.

This was a joy for me to work on from beginning to end. Thank you Michel Hausmann and Salomon Lerner for considering me worthy of such an enterprise as Golem of Havana ended up being for all of us. Inspiring, heart-felt, intelligent, giving.
¡Muchas Gracias a todos!
The Golem of Havana is Miami New Drama’s original, critically-acclaimed musical that explores the lives of a Jewish family in Cuba on the brink of revolution. It is an epic story with an exciting score that blends Cuban and Jewish music.

I have always avoided spending more than seven consecutive days in balmy Boca Raton. Why? Because there ain’t much culture there. Actually the major artistic activity of palm-sheltered snowbirds is sneaking into three multiplex potboilers for the price of one senior citizen admission — hardly proof of intellectual perspicacity.
So why was this winter different? The certainty of the Mother of All Blizzards encouraged me to entertain heartfelt offers from casual acquaintances to squat in their guest bedrooms for “as long as I liked,” However, judging from their expressions of dismay when my...
Henry David Thoreau, the original hipster, famously wrote that “the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Occasionally, a performance will so accurately convey that axiom that it’s almost uncomfortable to witness. Chaz Mena accomplished this feat in Zoetic Stage’s Detroit at the Arsht Center. He found the quiet desperation in Ben, an unemployed husband of Anytown suburbia who was perennially building a financial website that never materialized, watching NASCAR programs on max volume in a zombified stupor, and staring a few beats too long at his younger, blonder, always...
