Slices of Life: My One-Man Pizza Show debuts to a full house!

Still shot taken by my mom (Kitzi)

This past Sunday, (March 9th), I performed in my first ever one-man show called SLICES OF LIFE and, thanks to the overwhelming support of the audience,  it won't be my last!

Drawing from experiences during Pizza Months 2002 - 2013, I told stories about the many people I have met, places I have gone, and pizza I have consumed.  Topics such as the origin of pizza, the mafia, and even my own dating life were explored, and we wrapped up the evening with a pizza party in the lobby of the Magnet Theater!

I want to extend an extra special thanks to Megan Gray, the Artistic Director of the Magnet Theater for providing me the opportunity to perform as well as Joe Riggio, the owner of NY Pizza Suprema for supplying the post-show pizza.

Finally, I must thank my wife Robin Rothman Taylor for helping me conceive of the idea, her behind-the-scenes direction/encouragement, video coverage during, and assistance afterward (schlepping the pies from Suprema to the Magnet.)

Overall, I give the entire experience 5/5 slices.  Thank you everyone for your continued support and interest in Pizza Month over the past 12 years.  I will be posting dates and showtimes for future show here, so please stay tuned to my blog for updates!

How cool, Sean! You mentioned that Robin filmed your show...will this footage ever be available to all your fans who were unable to see you live?
