An award-winning actor and writer, Bill has performed around the world, as well as in all 50 states appearing on the stages of Broadway, the Kennedy Centre, Radio City Music Hall, and the New York International Fringe Festival. His Broadway credits include “Zazu” in The Lion King and “Leggett” in The Scarlet Pimpernel. A student of Marcel Marceau, Bill’s physical performance style brings to mind classic performances by Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and Red Skelton. Combined with an easy storytelling charm, a cross between Garrison Keillor and David Sedaris, his show, subtitled Stories With and Without Words, is sure to delight.
