Working Productions

"The Kitchen Play"

"Joshua Michael Payne (John Stanton) executes Kirchner's parallel between the father and son effortlessly."

I've been lucky enough to have been cast in the inaugural production of "The Kitchen Play" by Brian Kirchner.  

I play John, a 26 year old with a lot of energy, wit, and volition who is living at home with his parents and sister.  He is intwined with the pending divorce of his parents, and is coping with the fact that his family means everything to him; despite what he is willing to admit.

We opened on August 11 2014 at the Roy Arias Theater (43 St./8th ave) in New York City to rave reviews, and are currently planning subsequent productions.

"Wild Men"
I am ridiculously excited to announce that I have been cast as a supporting role in the upcoming Feature Film, "Wild Men".  

I play Billy, a 22 year old recent graduate in anthropology who manages to find a job as a production assistant on the set of a reality TV show.  This TV show, called "Wild Men" hunts down the ever-elusive create known as Sasquatch.  Billy and the rest of the gang are in for a lot more than they bargained for.

We began production on October 1, 2014 along the Delaware River, and wrapped on October 12.

Release is tentatively planned for August, 2015.
