Next up: Hunchback in Sacramento and LaMirada

Don't miss Eric as Captain Phoebus August 23-28 at Sacramento Music Circus, and September 15-October 9th at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts!

Written by Victor Hugo (Les Miserables) and published in 1831, the theme revolves around Hugo's love of the architecture of Notre Dame Cathedral and is one of the first novels to have beggars as protagonists.  The name Quasimodo has become synonymous with "a courageous heart beneath a grotesque exterior." Combining Hugo's unparalleled storytelling talents with Mencken and Schwartz's music at the beautiful Music Circus venue (not to mention seeing Eric perform a role new and unique for him) will be an experience not to be missed. An interesting tidbit: the role of Quasimodo will be played by John McGinty, a Deaf actor, who is connected to Eric through their work on the musical in development, "Brindlebeast", written by Anita Riggio.
If you will be in Sacramento and want to meet up, please let me know. I will be there all week.
So excited!
