Back to school

I recently started my second year of graduate studies at New York University. I am completing a Master of Music (in Music Theatre) and an Advanced Certificate in Vocal Pedagogy. In the past year, I learned a great deal about how to be a better communicator (as an actor, singer, and HUMAN), I learned a great deal about the anatomy and physiology of the larynx and the human body in relation to singing, and I had the opportunity to work as an adjunct instructor in voice at NYU.

Time has flown by. I look forward to finishing my degree in spring 2018 (it seems so far away, but I know it’s just around the corner) and continuing my development as an artist and teacher.

I recently had the pleasure of spending some time on the beach filming a commercial for the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Being in the museum was pretty cool too. ūüėČ

Check out what critics thought:

“Sand brings every ounce of his talent to the fore, proving him to be¬†a true triple threat. Sand plays a number of tricky disguises; like a chameleon, he’s in and out deviously, prodding and pushing, and playing both sides, keeping us guessing.”

“This cast is musically talented, starting with Emcee Eric Sand, the buff beef cake version (Joel Grey and Alan Cumming never looked so hot) who opens the show singing “Willkommen,” with a forebodingly sexualized, polished performance. He’s delicious. In every scene Eric is mesmerizing.”

Two Ladies

“Emcee (Eric Sand)…a muscular lipsticked beauty…the recent Big Apple-to-Tinseltown transplant possesses charisma and vocal chops in equal abundance in addition to being as physically spectacular as Emcees get.”

Eric Sand scores high for his resonant vocals and muscular (albeit overdressed) torso.”

Eric Sand hits every note with gusto as his character transforms from military man to lover to ridiculously-accented spy to zombie.”

Eric Sand previously appeared in the Lovecraft show in the role of H.P. Lovecraft, himself;¬†the role was eccentric and played so, but here he practically tears out of his skin in an insanely over-the-top, cornball¬†performance that is hysterical to behold.”

“Zombies From Beyond is a hugely fun musical satire of 1950s sci-fi B-movies featuring a multi-talented cast, spearheaded by the star quality of Amelia Gotham and versatility of Eric Sand.”

“As Rick Jones,¬†Eric Sand¬†had the clean-cut assistant down well, and did a remarkable transformation into the spy from behind the Iron Curtain who wanted the alien for his foreign masters. He sang and moved well, and he was fun to watch.”

Eric Sand is charming as Rick. When his character’s secret is revealed, the transformation is terrific and his song,¬†Big-Wig, is really fun.”

A Reminder

A short film I worked on. Never take someone for granted or allow them to do the same to you.

Lovecraft Lives Again

Eric will be reprising his role of H.P. in the Visceral Company’s Lovecraft: Nightmare Suite when it is revived in late January at the Lex Theatre. ¬†The show originally ran September 27‚ÄĒNovember 3, was named LA Weekly‘s “Pick of the Week,” and sold out for a great portion of the run. ¬†Check out some of the other press and production photos from the original run below.

HP Lovecraft

“Eric Sand‚Äôs Howard Phillips (the H.P. in H.P. Lovecraft) brilliantly channeled both in appearance and demeanor what we‚Äôd expect from the master of horror himself, bookending the production, starting sane and ending mad.” ¬†‚ÄĒEdge Los Angeles

“An H.P. Lovecraft fan‚Äôs dream‚ÄĒliterally and figuratively, as it presents a remarkably faithful adaptation of some of the 20th century horror giant‚Äôs best-loved short fiction, all wrapped up in a fitful, shadowy dream-narrative wraparound (starring H.P.L. himself, played by Eric Sand with a fine balance of growing panic and purple melodrama).” ¬†‚ÄĒCreepy LA

the outsider

“A¬†deftly directed and well-acted show that serves quite well…An outstanding and entertaining production.” ¬†‚ÄĒLAist

Lovecraft: Nightmare Suite

It’s the day of the show, y’all!

Lovecraft: Nightmare Suite opens tonight at the Visceral Company (click the link to learn more!).

The show is based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, an American author who is now regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century, and whom author Stephen King cites as one of his greatest writing influences.

I am so excited to be part of this production!  You can find more information on our show (and a few rehearsal photos!) in this article published by the LA Stage Times.

The production begins previews tonight (September 27, 2013) at the Lex Theatre in Hollywood and runs through November 3, with performances at 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 pm on Sundays.

Whether you know anything about H.P. Lovecraft or not, the stories are still sure to entertain.  Oh, and be sure to bring someone to grab onto (there are some frightening moments!).

Purchase tickets here.  See you at the theatre!
