He was also a member of the original cast of Luigi's published play: "Night Of The Foolish Moon." Some of his proudest theatre moments include the World premiere of Roberto Aguirre Saccasa's "Golden Age" and the last several summers at the Carolinian Shakespeare Festival playing such wonderful roles as Bottom in Midsummer, Prospero in "The Tempest" and Claudius in "Hamlet".
