    Eric is currently performing in Othello: The Moor of Venice and Love's Labour's Lost in repertory this summer, now through August 7th.  In Othello: The Moor of Venice he plays Michael Cassio, the General Othello's Lieutenant and right hand man who gets manipulated by lesser-ranking Iago.  Iago feels he should have Cassio's position , and tricks him into losing his title and becoming a pawn in a web of jealousy and murder.
    In a gender-reversed telling of the classic comedy Love's Labour's Lost, Eric plays the Prince of France (in the original script, the Princess of France) who journeys with his court to Navarre to visit with the Queen and her court, who have all sworn off the pleasures of men to study for three years in celibacy.  Obviously, when the women and men meet, sparks fly and vows are tested.
