If you’ve ever listened to his demos or heard his work, it’s no mystery why I am such a big fan of Rowell Gormon. He’s an amazingly talented guy with whom I’ve had the delight of working a few times and with whom I’m grateful to be friends.
Rowell lives about 2 and a half hours up the highway from me near Raleigh, North Carolina; so most of our communication is virtual. But, yesterday I got the delight of spending some time with him in person, while he was in Charlotte for an acting performance at a corporate event in the city center.
The theatre troupe was here to do a Mystery/Comedy performance that involves a lot of audience interaction. Rowell, as you might be able to tell from his costume (he’s on the left, I’m on the right), plays the gumshoe in this piece.
Here Rowell is reaching for his handcuffs as he gets a little carried away with his role. Why I’m smiling is a bit of a mystery in itself. (Well, OK, he’s actually reaching for his cell phone, but I think the photo turned out funny.)
Update: Thanks to the link in Rowell’s comment below, I can now update this with a link to the troupe with which he was performing here in Charlotte.
