Rude Guerrilla shutting down permanently

Orange County's most provocative theater is permanently closing after this season. This has been my theatrical home for the past ten years and I had visions of it continuing into something bigger. So I'm sad but grateful to be able to direct one more show here.

More information about the closing at this OC Register page.

Big Hunk O'Burnin' Love coming up

I'll be directing Big Hunk o’ Burning Love by Prince Gomolvilas, showing at Rude Guerrilla Theater from May 15 thru June 20. In this comedy, a young man finds out from his worried parents that he will spontaneously combust if he doesn’t get married by the age of 30….and his birthday is just a week away!

I'll be needing crew as well as actors for the mostly Asian cast. Stay tuned for more details.
