Bonnet Returns?

So word on the street is that Spire Music (aka Rob Gardner) will be producing a remount of Blackbeard this September. I've been asked to revise my role of Stede Bonnet, the Gentleman Pirate. I'm in! At first I was a bit hesitant, but after a lot of thought and chatting with my amazing wife we feel this would be another great opportunity for me to get out and perform. I've not done a show since Blackbeard last July so it's been a while. Maggie was born right at the end of the run and I vowed to take a year off from shows to be a dad. I've stuck to my word and in two months it will be a full year of no shows. It's been a wonderful break. I've gotten to really enjoy coming home from work and just being with my family! I LOVE BEING A DAD!!! And, the best part is, I get to do it all over again in October! WOO HOO!!

So, here's an image of me as "Bonnet" to get you all excited to come see the remount. . .

See you in September! Check the website for more details.

Hi guys!! So fun to find your blog. I love it and I'll be checking it frequently :)
Maggie is getting so big and is ADORABLE! At least you got one good picture from the shoot, eh? How were the retakes?
It's good to hear the Dr.s are optimistic about tony. It's too bad he's in pain though :( We've been praying for him and the family.
Jere- I'm so excited that you're in for Blackbeard revised. We didn't get to see you perform last time so it will be fun to see you this go round!

You were my favorite part of Blackbeard. I'm looking forward to seeing you back on stage, although I think it's so fantastic that you took a year off.
