Who’s Who of Kalamazoo: Roger Burleigh

He’s not just a multi-talented stage manager extraordinaire. He is one of my favorite people in the world. Roger Burleigh has been a fixture at Farmers Alley Theatre in downtown Kalamazoo since its 3rd season.

Photo Shoot: The Cast of “It’s Only a Play”

3 years (what?!) after one of my favorite photo shoots for “Vanya, Sonia, Masha, and Spike” I teamed up once again with director David Alpert for his new show at Farmers Alley Theatre. He loves the Vanity Fair vibe and while we don’t  have Annie Leibovitz type sets, equipment, or budget,  I get pretty psyched about the results.


“It’s Only a Play” runs March 9th – 25th at Farmers Alley Theatre

NEW SERIES! Who’s Who of Kalamazoo

As a tribute to all the amazing talent in the area, I’ve decided to start an interview series showcasing the artists I photograph. I can’t think of a better way to kick this off than with an actor whose comedic timing has been compared to Lucille Ball : Gina Maria Chimner.Gina2.jpg

Gina has been an inspiration to me ever since I worked with her in Gypsy, my first show in Kalamazoo back in 2002! Hear her talk about one of her craziest moments onstage below. (NOTE: I did this on a whim and didn’t have a good mic with a wind sock.)
