My plays usually end darkly. I always thought that was real life, that there were always shades of gray, but he helped me see some other colors in the palette.” In 2011 he originated the role of 'Trip Wyeth' in Jon Robin Baitz's Other Desert Cities for which he won an Obie Award and Lucille Lortel Award.
