Personal Quote:

Ireland has been a truly inspirational place to film Penny Dreadful (2014). Not only does it have deeply talented crews, but the city's unspoiled architecture perfectly captures London at the turn of the last century. Also, the ghosts of Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde walk these streets, which is pretty inspirational for us too.


His play, "Hauptmann", awarded the 1987 Joseph Jefferson Award Citation for Play Production at the Stormfield Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. See more »
