A new play by Amanda Horowitz, Matt is excited to have recently originated the role of Carl at Rutgers University this October 12-15! Inspired by Chekhov's The Seagull and Uncle Vanya, Heavenly Fools is an absurdist meditation on desire, love, loss, and humanity.


Comedy of Errors

She Kills Monsters

Matt played Chuck in this rambunctious and fantastical adventure-comedy that premiered at Rutgers University in November of 2023. Directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg, Matt unleashed his inner rock star while portraying this ridiculous teenage Dungeon Master.


Staged at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center in April of 2023, Matt played Lennox in this production of Shakespeare's tragedy. A new take on the show, the performance drew upon classic slasher and found-footage movies such as The Blair Witch Project.

Smart People

In October of 2021, Matt starred in Lydia Diamond's play as Brian White. Staged at Rutgers University in a small black box space with only a four person cast, this intimate, passionate, and deeply political work is one of his favorites to date.
