James is over the moon, because the Artist’s Cooperative Theatre (ACT 1) is presenting the world premiere of the NEW Jack and the Giant in Nashville, Tennessee! James co-wrote this whimsical folk musical with writing partner Andrew Barbato, and after many years of gestation and development, the show has evolved into something new and beautiful! If you’ve been looking for an offbeat, surprisingly thrilling, extraordinarily heartwarming theatrical adventure, then head on over to the DarkHorse theater in downtown Nashville and bear witness to this wonderful show!

James recently had the incredible pleasure of playing ‘Mr. Wormwood’ (Matilda’s crooked crook of a father) in the California regional premiere of Matilda at 5-Star Theatricals! The production also starred Nicholas Mongiardo-Cooper as ‘Miss Trunchbull’, Katie Deshan as ‘Miss Honey’, and Janna Cardia as ‘Mrs. Wormwood’. Helmed by former Cabrillo Music Theatre artistic director, Lewis Wilkenfeld, the show featured choreography by Heather Castillo and music direction by Jennifer Lin.
Check it out! James was asked to step into the role of ‘Beatz 3.0’ to perform with kindie rock sensation, Kids Imagine Nation. The trio took to the Downtown Disney main stage to deliver a bevy of original pop songs - and the audiences danced their little faces off! Being a humanoid robot ain’t easy, but it sure is fun! If you’re looking for some jammin’ tunes for your little ones, be sure to check out Kids Imagine Nation on iTunes and Youtube.
