Eric Seale Looks Forward to Performing in The Odd Couple!

Eric Seale as the villain at
Studio Players' WAIT UNTIL DARK

Director Bob Singleton eased the tension of a tight scene
with a good laugh, enjoyed by Eric Seale and Tommy Gatton
at Studio Players' rehearsal of WAIT UNTIL DARK

Ahh, 'tis spring and Bromance is in the air.  ...

Eric Seale and Bob Singleton are not an odd couple, but as Murray the cop (Singleton) and Speed (Seale), in the upcoming Woodford Theatre presentation of Neil Simon's THE ODD COUPLE, the two good pals will be sharing the stage and scenes together, a delightful new bend in the road of their fellowship.

Sharon Sikorski will once again be working
with Seale. In this photo, she works on her character for
WAIT UNTIL DARK by conferring with a
visually impaired assistant who teaches others in learning
how to be safely mobile if unable to see.  .

Sikorski will play Queen Elizabeth in AGL's next production!

Seale, Actors Guild's Artistic Director tells me what's going on with him in the not so distant future involves AGL, Shakespeare, and the well.   "So, currently I am playing Speed in ODD COUPLE (with my hetero lifemate Bob Singleton) which opens this weekend at Woodford Theatre."

Bob directed Seale in WAIT UNTIL DARK a few years ago;  Eric officiated Bob and Allie's wedding. -- and the two have been a part of successful theatre projects for quite a while now.  Surprisingly, they have never performed on stage with one another until THE ODD COUPLE came a-calling. "Yeah it's a blast. First time ever where Bob and I actually have scenes together," Seale tells me.

Seale points out "my big exciting thing on top of that is that I'm in Rehearsal for my big show of the year WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S LAND OF THE DEAD a thrilling historical epic\comedy\zombie apocalypse blood fest!"

He's excited about the Shakespeare zombie bloodfest players, too.  "Great cast! Tim Hull as Shakespeare, Matt Seckman as Francis Bacon, and Sharon Sikorski is Queen Elizabeth!"

This classic comedy by Neil Simon opens as a group of guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. If the mess in his home is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife has left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with the murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born. 

"Wildly, irresistibly, incredibly and continuously funny." - New York Daily News
