Losing weight for the role of Prior in ANGELS IN AMERICA who’s living with AIDS in 1985. When I was cast months ago, I very consciously made the decision to help tell our difficult, wonderful, life-affirming story with not only my voice, my movements, and my acting, but also my body. Don’t worry, friends: I’m being very healthy in my process! Thank you for the love. #AngelsInAmerica #aids #theatre #theater #acting #sacrifice #craft #repstl
When I was a 20 years old, a 40 year old mentor of mine put a copy of ANGELS IN AMERICA Parts 1 & 2 in my hands and said, “One day you’ll be in this.” I knew I was reading a work of genius. A masterpiece of the American Theatre. These plays won the Pulitzer Prize and every Tony Award under the sun. But be IN them? Never. I was a musical theatre chorus boy working in summer stock. I would never be in a play this important. I would never be old enough. Smart enough. A good enough actor. Never be brave enough to face its themes much less portray them truthfully. I would never be fierce enough, fabulous enough, flamboyant enough, weird enough. Awesome enough. 21 years later, I have been cast in ANGELS IN AMERICA Parts 1 & 2 at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, one of the best regional theatres in the country. I am playing Prior Walter, a gay New Yorker living with AIDS in 1985 - one of the scariest times to be alive in recent history. And here I am: old enough, smart enough, GOOD ENOUGH. Living in my power and tapping into everything in me that is unapologetically and openly gay, grounded, fierce, funny, flamboyant, and fabulous, sure, but also, intelligent, tough, wonderful, nasty, strong, gross... and brave. The Great Work Begins . . . Thank you, @peve419 for putting these great works in this chorus boy’s (jazz) hands. 👋🏼📖👋🏼 #AngelsInAmerica #priorwalter #thegreatworkbegins #milleniumapproaches #perestroika #repstl #repertorytheatreofstlouis
