Under the directorship of Charles Curtis I had the blessing of growing and honing my craft as a performer. He challenges your thinking, and as an audience member the story never ends as you might expect. He is a marvelous teacher, performer, and thoughtful friend on and off the stage and there are no limits to the drive and ambition he exudes.
