Thrilled to play Adam in a sold out benefit staged reading of Geoffrey Nauffts’s wonderful play NEXT FALL to celebrate World Pride Day. Directed by Sarah Spring, this play was the perfect way to celebrate all the progress made in the almost 10 years since its Broadway debut. And gosh I really loved playing this character. Thanks to The Drama Club NYC for assembling this creative team and producing this event.
If you haven't watched PRODUCING JULIET yet, the show is now streaming on Amazon Prime! Excited that this show will now reach a wider audience and was happy for a chance to re-watch the entire series. Loved working on this project with writer/director Tina Cesa Ward a stellar cast led by Rachel Hip-Flores.
Big thanks to The Headshot Truck for a great shoot and my new pic! Had this beard for a while now and thought I could use a new shot to show it off. Love the background colors they use on the truck, and would recommend to anybody for a comfortable and easy session.
And as if that wasn’t enough, a nerdy one with glasses:

I love this play and I'm so happy the critical and audience response has been through the roof. Written by Ken Urban and directed by Adam Fitzgerald, the cast includes Maulik Pancholy, Lori Prince, Dee Nelson, Jeff Biehl, Jocelyn, Kuritsky, Miranda Jackel and myself.
"The production captures exquisitely the shifting logic of dreams where people appear and melt away and metamorphose, and where minds connive to translate contemporary anxieties into primal fears of fire, flood and bloodthirsty beats." - NY Times
"Andy Phelan's Malcolm is one of the most striking performances I've seen this year; the tiniest shift in emotion registers on his face in seismic fashion, revealing sorrows that he can barely name." -Light & Sound America
The run is almost sold out. Cancelation tickets are sometimes available.

Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham leads the cast of Bertolt Brecht's GALILEO at Classic Stage. The incredible cast also includes Jon DeVries, Robert Dorfman, Aaron Himelstein, Andy Phelan, Amanda Quaid, Steve Rattazzi, Steven Skybell and Nick Westrate.
Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal raves:
Peter Filichia, formerly of the Newark Star Ledger says:
"Andy Phelan, one of our most exciting young actors, excels as his assistant who believes all too staunchly in Galileo. We’re always glad when F. Murray Abraham returns to the stage, but the day will soon come when Phelan is just as anticipated."
