WALKEN ON SUNSHINE

Written by Dave Droxler

Directed by Marcus Stevens

Cast: Maggie Carr, Dave Droxler, Jennifer Fouche, DeLance Minefee, Paul Pakler, Jonathan Spivey and James Rushin.

I first met Dave Droxler in 2013 when I did a video interview with him and Stolen Chair director Jon Stancato. They were bringing to the stage a wonderful film “The Man Who Laughs”. Dave gave a most amazing performance in that show. When he contacted me to do this interview regarding his play I was most interested in meeting him to do it. I am very excited to see this show! Please come and support Dave and this great cast!
