I want to thank you for being such a pleasure to work with. Your commitment to creating distinct characterizations was wonderful - Casey was a hoot and avoided being a stereotype - Bravo! Alan had a tough edge to him and Swoosh in his guts - again, without becoming a cardboard character hard-ass boss. Your Ambassador cracked me up every time - "I'm not from here." No kidding, with that accent.
I love seeing a skilled actor at work in the rehearsal process. It's a treat to watch him explore and risk new ideas. You did that and I have to believe it encouraged the other, newer actors to try the same thing in their own work.
Please let me know what else you do in town - I want to keep up with your career!
Jay Croft as Frankie Salvucci in Breaking Leg.
Jay is one of the most versatile, hard-working actors I have ever worked with. He is fearless - willing to do anything I throw at him for the sake of the character. He's always prepared and constantly surprises me with his acting choices
