“Freud’s Last Session” is dead! Long Live “Twelfth Night!”

It was a fantastic ride. From rehearsal, through performance, and the extended run I can positively say it was a pleasure to work with the cast and crew of this show, and an additional pleasure to return to Taproot Theatre.

For those who didn’t catch it, you can read some local reviews in my previous post about the extension, and for those who did, I’m glad you could come see our work. I’m very proud of us all.

Thankfully, I won’t have to go too long without posting about another show, as I’m already beginning my preparation to play Sir Andrew Aguecheek in this summer’s Wooden O production of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night”.

“Freud’s Last Session” Extends it’s Run!

Hello out there! It’s Opening Weekend for Major League Baseball (Let’s Go, Mariners!), it’s Good Friday on the Liturgical Calendar (Let’s Go, Church!). Hope of all kinds springs eternal, and I have news!

I’m very pleased to report that due to high ticket demand, “Freud’s Last Session” at Taproot Theatre will be extending it’s run of performances through April 28!

Freud's Last Session Exteded

If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a great play, and has had a terrific reception by Seattle audiences. I’m playing CS Lewis and it has been an absolute pleasure to bring this story and this character to life on the stage.

Here are a few reviews:

“Opening Nights: Freud’s Last Session” – Seattle Weekly

“Freud’s Last Session” – Arts Stage – Seattle Rage

“A Psychoanalysis of Theology” – Heed The Hedonist

“Sigmund Freud and CS Lewis Walk Into a Bar” – Unlikely Places

I’ll see you after the show.

“Freud’s Last Session” at Taproot Theatre

“Air raid sirens sound overhead, CS Lewis is a young and rising academic star and Sigmund Freud has invited him for tea.  What could possibly come next?”

You should come see this one. It’s an exciting two-hander and I’m playing CS Lewis opposite Nolan Palmer as Sigmund Freud.  This play has been running off-Broadway for the better part of two years, consistently extending its performances, and has captured the hearts of New York theatre goers.

This production is the play’s regional premiere, and I’m thrilled to be part of local audiences’ first experience of this play. It’s my hope that it will inspire, confront, and provoke you as the characters wrestle with some of the greatest questions of their lives. This is my second production with Taproot Theatre Company, and I’m thrilled to be returning to their unique theatrical space.

If all of the above didn’t convince you, let me add this: it’s short. 1 Act, with a running time just north of an hour.

Here’s the info:
