Summer 2017 has Ryan starring in Robert Askins' debauched puppet horror romp as both the timid teenager Jason and his maniacal, possessed puppet Tyrone. B Street Theatre in Sacramento is a new and exciting venue for Ryan, and he has had a wonderful experience with this bizarre, hilarious, and heart-wrecking piece.
Bev Sykes of Davis Enterprises writes,
"Borses gives an outstanding performance as both Jason and Tyrone, Borses is able to create distinct personalities for the two characters and
accurately displays a range of emotions,
including the depth of Jason’s depression and Tyrone’s anger, often simultaneously,
in one fast-paced dialog between the two.
It has to be seen to truly be appreciated."
In December 2015, Ryan was delighted to perform as the title role in the new musical Young Charles Dickens at NYC Children's Theater. The New York Times called the show "earnest and often evocative," and mentioned Ryan for bringing "vulnerability and passion to Charles, who finds his salvation in inventing stories." It was a thrill to work with director Josh Penzell, librettist Barbara Zinn Krieger, and composer Charlie Greenberg, not to mention the fine group of actors and the scores of eager young people enthralled by their earliest exposures to musical theatre.
Ryan is pleased to announce the release of his first published audiobook - TUT: THE STORY OF MY IMMORTAL LIFE by fellow Austinite P.J. Hoover! This gripping young adult adventure is available for sale on Audible, Amazon, and Itunes, and it represents the first of many future forays into voiceover work for Ryan! The audiobook also contains lots of fun original Egyptian-style music by Ryan.
