Adam D. Ercolani is a playwright, director, and actor from Bear Creek, PA. Having graduated from Misericordia University in May of 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, he has committed to Moravian College where he will pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Performance Creation. While in Bethlehem, Ercolani will apprentice with the Touchstone Theatre, a not-for-profit professional theater, under Artistic Director James P. Jordan.
Ercolani has performed with the Misericordia Players (Dallas, PA) for eight consecutive productions over the past four years, and has been active with other ensembles throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania for the past eight years, including the Pennsylvania Theatre of Performing Arts (Hazleton, PA), the Nuangola Grove (Nuangola, PA), Act Out Theatre (Scranton, PA), the Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre (Wilkes-Barre, PA), the Misfit Players (Wilkes-Barre, PA), the Limelight Players (Wilkes-Barre, PA), the Coughlin Players (Wilkes-Barre, PA), and the Performing Arts Institute at Wyoming Seminary (Kingston, PA). Select acting credits include: Melchior Gabor in ‘Spring Awakening’ (Pennsylvania Theatre of Performing Arts), Pippin in ‘Pippin,’ Judas in ‘Godspell,’ Judas in ‘Jesus Christ Superstar,’ Mortimer Brewster in ‘Arsenic and Old Lace,’ and Philip Lombard in ‘And Then There Were None’ (Misericordia University), Japheth in ‘Children of Eden’ and Phoebus in ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’ (Nuangola Grove), and Bobby in ‘A Chorus Line’ (Act Out Theatre). In addition to stage work, Ercolani also recently recorded a pilot as a featured extra for a television pilot entitled ‘Cracka,’ directed by Dale ‘Rage’ Resteghini, starring Keke Palmer and Hakeem Kae-Kazim.
This production marks Ercolani’s first foray into play-writing, directing, and producing. Both ‘Between Us’ and ‘Tell Me’ have been written within the past year, and this production is the premier of both works on stage.
