"Dream" reviews, opera premiere, Yahoo! Daily Shot, Hairspray, The Unexpected Guest, and Full Monty!

Lots of Spring updates!

1. Life Could Be a Dream at the Ivoryton Playhouse was a huge success! Don Church and Tony Schillachi of Examiner.com raved "When Skip the hunky car mechanic arrives on the scene and joins the singing group the show really takes off. Evan D. Siegel has a stage presence and a voice that immediately lifts the show...to something special. His ‘Sunday Kind Of Love’ is a hauntingly beautiful ballad put across with great longing, and ‘Unchained Melody’ sung with Lois gives his character a depth of feeling not evident from Skip’s rough outward demeanor." Another viewer wrote about "...Skip, a magnetizing Evan Siegel..." Thanks to a wonderful cast, crew, and creative team!

2. On April 15, Evan begins rehearsals for the world premiere of a new opera entitled Steal a Pencil for Me, by composer Gerald Cohen and librettist Deborah Brevoort. The opera will be spearheaded by a tremendous creative team from the New York City Opera, including director Beth Greenberg and conductor Ari Pelto, as well as an incredible collection of celebrated vocalists. Check out the article on Broadway World. Performances are on April 28 and April 30.

3. On April 19, Evan will film a special comedic segment for Yahoo! Daily Shot with Ali Wentworth entitled "Stocks and Bods". Evan will play "Mr. Mutual Funds", a shirtless personification of a type of investment popular among women. Should be fun!

4. On May 7, Evan will begin rehearsals at the wonderful New Stage Theatre, where he was recently seen in The Great Gatsby. This time, Evan will portray Corny Collins in Hairspray!

5. This summer, Evan will return to the Barnstormers Theatre for the fifth wonderful year! Evan will play Buddy "Keno" Walsh in The Full Monty, and will also portray Maj. Julian Farrar in the Agatha Christie murder mystery The Unexpected Guest. The next few months are shaping up to be busy indeed!

Happy Spring, everyone!
