Excited to announce that the indie feature I worked on last year is in post production and should be hitting the festival circuit the end of this year. Please check back for more details soon!

Do you Love food, but it's a Labour that's Lost on you? Come check out Shake and Bake's production of LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST this Fall. I'll be serving up some food and some verse in the devised role of the Chef in the production. Read more in this NY Times Press release. More info coming soon!

This spring will take me to Arizona (never been!), to perform in Arizona Broadway Theatre's production of “The Bridges of Madison County." I will understudy main man Robert Kincaid, as well as perform in the ensemble. Looking forward to undertaking some of my favorite music by Jason Robert Brown, as well as experiencing a new and beautiful part of the country.

“Joe Ventricelli, playing Pharaoh, absolutely nails [his] parts. Probably some of the best scenes of the musical.”

“Joe Ventricelli makes a memorable Compass Rose debut as Lancelot, displaying strong comedic skills in his introductory "C'est Moi." Ventricelli knows his way around a song, as demonstrated in his touching version of the show's most memorable tune: "If Ever I Would Leave You." Here, it's flawlessly delivered to mark a high point in the show.”

“Joe Ventricelli (Wolf and Cinderella’s Prince) nails his songs”
