At the age of 12, his attentions turned to theatre as he was cast in Anthony Newley's musical "Chaplin". Thereafter, he was cast as Eugene in two different productions of Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" followed by his portraying that same character in the other two installments of the Neil Simon trilogy, namely, "Biloxi Blues" and "Broadway Bound".
