Last week, I started rehearsals for Saint Joan with the Orchard Theater Collective in Minneapolis.
We've got a team of five actors playing the couple dozen roles. I'm playing Charles the Dauphin, John de Stogumber, Poulengey, some pages, and, for the briefest of moments, the Executioner.
The play has a short run (March 6 - March 21).

And here's a first-day-of-rehearsal shot with the cast and our director, Ben Shaw (no relation to George Bernard Shaw...I think).
Movies and TV series watched in the year.
I'm headed back to Texas Shakespeare Festival for the summer!
I'll be playing:
Come visit me in Kilgore, Texas this summer. They're also doing Into the Woods and a brand-new children's show called The Girl Who Cried Throgmonster by my friend Grace Abele.
This leaves me booked until August 1 in 2019.
I'm eager to find work after that.
Here's a running list of the books (and plays) I've read cover-to-cover:
"I'm very keen that [the actors are] always speaking to try and affect the other person...to affect, to try and change the world--either by affecting what the other person is doing or wants them to do, or by releasing something that's pent up in themselves, which needs to be expressed. But they're never saying anything in order to illuminate you about 'ooh, that's a big theme, or that's what the play's about.' It's a play. It's a play. "
Mark Rylance - Approaching the Play / The Old Vic Conversation
"Sailer’s performance is a tour de force. He presents himself as cocksure and arrogant — and a warrior, but he is also the embodiment of the expression 'uneasy lies the crown.'”
- Andy Coughlan, English with a Bit of Texas
