DIDN’T I ALSO SEE HIM ON STAGE SOMEWHERE?

He wrote, produced, and performed in the world’s first Martial Arts Musical Comedy, “Memoirs of a Ninja,” with composer Brian Lewis. The satirical work won five Maddy Awards, five Garland Awards, and was honored as a “The Best Theatre 2000” pick by NiteLife After Dark magazine.
