I knew Evan Bass was right for the part when he asked a question about his character, Abe, that even I, the writer, had not considered. Sure, that could have been my own shortcoming, but I’d prefer to defer to Evan’s impressive insight and professionalism. Several actors came prepared to audition, yet Evan was still head and shoulders above the rest.

At the time Evan read for the part of Abelardo Bolog, I was a young writer who had yet to see his scripts brought to life. The moment Evan turned Abe from mere words on a page into a funny and real person is one that’s still with me to this day. We kept Evan around for awhile after that to read with other actors, and everything just took off from there.
