ABOUT

ME!

Anthony is an award-winning director and educator specializing in ensemble-driven theatre and new work development.

 

His work on the world-premiere of Southern Hospitality by Lilia Rubin earned him the NSPF Award for Best Director. In 2018, Anthony co-produced and directed Theatre for the New City’s 15th annual gala, Love ‘N Courage, featuring André De Shields, Vinie Burrows, and Luba Mason.

 

Anthony founded The Sandbox @ Redhouse, a program in partnership with Red House Arts Center designed to train and foster collaboration between local playwrights and directors in the development of new works. Anthony was selected by the International Performing Arts Institute to direct and train early-career musical theatre and opera professionals in Kiefersfelden, Germany. This year, The Great American Songbook Foundation recruited Anthony to sit on the admittance panel for their prestigious Songbook Academy, a program that trains pre-professional high school performers from around the country. 

Anthony is currently the Interim Artistic Director at Arlington Children’s Theatre who, under his leadership, pioneered the first in-person performances in the Greater Boston Area since the March 2020 shutdown.

Anthony holds a BFA in Music Theatre from Elon University and is an SDC Associate Member.

"Not only is he extremely passionate about his work, but he values every single person involved in the vision. That love and respect was so empowering to not only witness but to experience myself."

CASSANDRA JONES

Actor

"The design process is a true collaboration and joy with Anthony. He provides an environment of shared and safe discourse where parties are allowed to question and explore in order to allow what the scenery evokes in telling the story."

SHANE CINAL
