He Loved The Soft Porn Of The City

nytheatre.com q&a preview by James Wesley Edwards
July 25, 2012

What is your job on this show?
Drums?Percussion.

Where were you born? Where were you raised? Where did you go to school?
I was born and raised in Albany, NY. I went to Columbia High School in East Greenbush, NY and college at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Complete this sentence: My show is the only one in FringeNYC that...?
....... has the words `Soft Porn' in the title. What?

How did you meet your fellow artists/collaborators on this show?
I answered an ad on craigslist. It read `Looking for a Tony Williams type drummer'. I'm thinking,.. OK, this I need to check out. After one audition and three callbacks I got the gig. Whee. Me.

Which famous New Jerseyite would like your show the best: Snooki, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Edison?
Snooki, of course. She would get up and join our dancer. That would be a hell of a show. How does she get her hair way up there like that?

Why should people come to FringeNYC this summer, rather than the beach, mountains, or the latest movie blockbuster?
Really? WE HAVE A DOG IN OUR SHOW!! (Sometimes you just have to mix things up a little, OK?) where else are you going to have the chance to see our show? At the Robert Moss Theater. Moderno Trio. That's us. Pssst, little secret, the Grand Canyon and Disneyworld are WAY OVERRATED. Please.
