The reviews are in!

Local critics and audiences alike are loving Schoolhouse Rock Live! (Even our creative team is shocked by the great reception!) I’m honored to have made an impression on our critics. Check out the press below:

From AltDaily: “Standouts include…Nick Richardson, who finds some great moments of humor with some nice choices of line delivery, and gets to don the largest costume piece as the titular character in ‘Just a Bill.'”

From Outwire757: “The entire ensemble helps to bring the story to life on stage, but two performances stand out: Nick Richardson’s and Kai White’s. Mr. Richardson’s energy level is one every performer should strive for. He committed to every character and performance and was a joy to watch.”

I’ll update this if any new reviews are published!

There are still two more weekends to see us at the Little Theatre of Virginia Beach! (We sold out last Sunday, so get your tickets today!)

July News

It’s been a while since I’ve last updated my site, and so much has happened since then! Here’s the scoop:

  • I completed my junior year at Florida State University, and I have one more year to go!
  • For the first few weeks of summer, I was a substitute teacher for Virginia Beach City Public Schools.
  • In May, I was cast in Schoolhouse Rock Live at the Little Theatre of Virginia Beach. We just had our opening weekend! There are still 3 weekends left (last show: August 7th), so buy your tickets today! (Hopefully I’ll share some reviews with you soon.)
  • I was hired by Trinity Episcopal Church in Portsmouth, VA as a paid soloist/chorister.
  • I just finished my second year working/volunteering as the Creative Team Assistant for Spotlight Productions, a theatre camp for children hosted at Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk, VA. For the youth camp (ages 8-12) production of Alice in Wonderland Jr., I served on deck crew and I helped design the program. I also designed the program and served as assistant choreographer for Grease, the teen camp’s show (ages 13-19).
  • The abstract to my award-winning scholarly paper “Does the Boot Fit? Understanding Race and Sexuality Representations in the Musical Kinky Boots” appears in the latest edition of Southern Theatre magazine (Volume LVII Number 3, Summer 2016). The online copy isn’t available yet, but you can read my abstract here on Southeastern Theatre Conference’s website.

It’s been such a busy summer already! Time is flying by!
