Jan 2019, Jon is beginning to develop, a new work of theater inspired by modern technology and Chaplin’s classic film Modern Times. He’ll be collaborating with a ridiculously talented team of performers including Lucy Shelby, Danny Gardner, Tamar Korn, Teddy Yudain, Regan Sims and Marissa Molnar. We will be performing a work-in-progress segment as part of Little Theatre at Dixon Place on April 8th at 7pm. Tickets will be available here.
