More Information


David Trudell began his acting career in third grade and has been performing ever since: onstage and off. He toured with the CG Players in the Hudson Valley where he landed leads in Look Homeward Angel, Barefoot in the Park and Butterflies are Free. At The Comedy Works in Albany, he co-starred in The Gingerbread Lady. Upon moving to L.A. he nabbed a principal role in a McDonalds commercial where he deftly sang and simultaneously ate a hamburger without choking. He has appeared in short films and various theatrical productions, including Charles Ludlam’s Camille at Highways Performance Space with Kearns.

Michael Kearns has been presenting work at Highways for a quarter of a century, beginning with his landmark solo piece, intimacies. Recently named by Frontiers Magazine as one of L.A.’s 26 Community Builders, for his mentorship work during the past 30 years, this is his third teaming with Trudell that includes the hit one-person show, In Heat In Hollywood. Kearns is the author of The Truth Is Bad Enough, his autobiography.
