• Now through December 24th, you can catch Paul as Ebenezer Scrooge in Alabama Shakespeare Festival's brand-new staging of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, directed by Artistic Director Rick Dildane.
• Paul's newest play, THE ANGEL NEXT DOOR, had its world premiere at North Coast Repertory, in a production which then transferred to Laguna Playhouse. The happy result: a smash hit with audiences and critics alike.
