You may not know it, but between 1992 and 2000, I did a fair share of acting below 14th Street in some wacky experimental theater pieces. What I did as the Dramaturg in a heavily deconstructed and ubercamp version of Othello I don't want to say. Anyway, last summer, the brilliant kids at Piper MacKenzie Productions wheedled me into appearing in a short mock-silent film. I played a sleazy professor who tries to force himself on a pretty young maid. Fun stuff. Warning: My shameless schmacting and mugging may cause seizures. Never let it be said that I don't have the firsthand knowledge to criticize bad performance.
