Uncle Franco / Creative Consultant

Don is a 30 year veteran of the Connecticut theater scene. He has performed with various theater groups throughout the state from Windsor to Orange. He seems to find himself in many Neal Simon productions, playing Victor Velazco in Barefoot in the Park, Sergeant Toomey in Biloxi Blues, Barney Cashman in Last of the Red Hot Lovers, and Mel Edison in Prisoner of Second Ave. Then he came across this wonderful lady Janice Luise of Aspen Dream Productions who invited him to audition for the part of Father O’Flasky in their comedy wedding show, For Better or For Worse. Don performed in that role for 10 years before getting the lead role of Uncle Franco for the last 10 years, which has been the highlight of his acting career. He would like to thank his wife Marie for 30 years of running lines with him and all this theater craziness.
