On New York and regional theater stages, he has played everything from the "obnoxious and disliked" founding father John Adams (three times in 1776), to the former slave owner who sees the light Phineas Fletcher (Uncle Tom's Cabin), to Shakespeare's Benedick (Much Ado About Nothing), to Shakespeare's Polixenes (The Winter's Tale), and to a suicidal, alcoholic actor (The Lower Depths). Despite those heady roles, he actually seems to spend most of his time on stage doing comedy and crazy farce.
