A short-film of CHICKEN & EGG SOUP is in pre-production to be directed by Fredi Walker Browne. His FABULOUS DARSHAN was chosen as “One of The Top Plays of the Year” by Indie Theatre Now and was a selected as a Fundraiser (with the original NY cast) for The Schenectady Light Opera Company’s Rainbow Access Program in Schenectady, NY and recently in The Celebration Theatre’s Reading Series in Los Angeles with Co-Artistic Director-Michael A. Sheppard as the lead. His ALL YOU CAN EAT play he recently adapted into a screenplay and is in preproduction by filmmaker Miles Maker in LA. His comedy inspired by his late friend called CAROL OF CARROLL GARDENS was selected for The Glamour Theatre's 1st Writer's Retreat in Fla. It was also chosen for THE DEPOT NEW PLAY READING SERIES in Hampton CT. Also, because each one act play of his A MEMORY PLAY and ALL YOU CAN EAT have the same characters but 45 years apart, he is creating a full evening of theater by combining and adapting them into THE MARRIAGE VARIATIONS.
