THEATER: Red Velvet at STNJ

David is delighted to be returning to the acclaimed Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey to portray Pierre LaPorte in their production of Red Velvet.

This marks the New Jersey premiere of award-winning British playwright, Lolita Chakrabarti’s true-life story of Ira Aldridge, an African-American actor and the first black man to appear as Othello on the London stage. This compelling tale of a pioneer artist from the 1800’s is fascinating, heartbreaking, and immensely relevant for our day and age.

Red Velvet will run from September 7 – September 25, 2016. For more information on the production, visit the STNJ production website.

David is available for booking in Seattle or for similar regional productions after the close of Red Velvet.
