National commercial booking 

I had a callback last week on a commercial job for a nationwide restaurant chain and brewhouse. I found out Friday that I booked it! We shot in Michigan overnight Wed into Thursday morning 1/16, and I’m settled back in NY now. It was a fantastic director team and crew. Everything went well and the client and ad agency were pleased. It was a fun and good experience all around.

“Matt Baxter Luceno does an excellent job playing Mortimer, the serious leading man who gets caught up in unusual circumstances. His comedic timing is superb.”  -  Mal Knapp, Exit Zero

Fri and Sat 8pm, Feb 15 and 16 at ARC Stages – Next Stage in Pleasantville, NY. “Ever” has easily been a favorite theatre role for me and there’s so much gold to mine in this play. It’s going to be tough to let this one go..

A Year In The Trenches – encore run 

I am back in Cape May revisiting my 8 different roles in A Year In The Trenches by James Rana, directed by Gayle Stahlhuth at East Lynne Theater Co. It is a rare opportunity to get to come back to the same play 7 months later for a run with almost the entire original cast and a lovely new addition. The production feels fresh and new and everyone has made new discoveries in their roles, listening to each other well and playing off each other in the moment. It’s fun to see and experience the incredible growth in this production through coming back to it with fresh eyes and ears. We opened last night and run through May 26th.
