'I'm back on the stage in New York!'
'Actor Brandon Ruckdashel raises the temperature to red hot in Red Light District's production of Edmund De Santis' Ascension by spending a third of the 90-minute running time naked and seducing Stephen Hope, playing a priest struggling to avoid falling into the arms of temptation until the devil makes him do it.'
When I first featured actor Brandon Ruckdashel back in 2008, it was under the banner, Favorite Stage Hunk of the Day. I had seen images and read reviews of buzz Brandon created in his 2006 role in Ascension, which had me wanting to know more about the talented and incredibly hot actor. Since then, I have covered, and uncovered, Brandon's many roles in film, television and on stage.
Brandon returns to the New York stage later this month in Cardiff, for a four performance run at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre. In 1972 in a gritty section of Cardiff, South Wales, on the morning following its installation, British sculptor, Garth Evans, recorded the comments of passers by to his large steel sculpture. When this work of art was suddenly transported to their neighborhood, residents responded with surprising passion. What they actually said provokes us, teaches us and moves us. This play is their words. If you're going to be in New York at the end of January, check out more at Purple Pass HERE:
