Friend and fellow Irregular Paul Singleton ("Covent Garden") does his fair share of acting. With letters like SAG, AFTRA and AEA after his name, he's obviously serious about it. He even has a web site to prove it.

If you've ever been to the BSI Weekend festivities and attended the Gillette Luncheon, you will have seen Paul performing after the meal, usually with some combination of Andrew Joffee, Sarah Montague and Elyse Locurto. And occasionally I get notices from Paul about his theater appearances in New York.

Paul just sent an announcement about an evening of O. Henry and Sherlock Holmes:
The Blue Carbuncle with Sherlock Holmes & The Gift of the Magi
Adapted from stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle & O. Henry
By Andrew Joffe
Directed by Kathleen Brant
Musical Direction: Jeffrey Buchsbaum
With Paul Singleton as Sherlock Holmes
Dec. 6 - Dec. 22, Tues thru Sat.
At: The WorkShop Theater Company
312 West 36th Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY

I have no doubt that this will be an excellent show, as Andrew's works are always engaging and entertaining, and Paul's performances are thorough, accurate and believable. In preparation for the production, the company is holding an event:
A Fundraising Party For the upcoming production of The Blue Carbuncle & The Gift of the Magi
(Two great stories, rooted in the Holiday season, with music)
