"My own personalities and characteristics fit Uncus very well," he said. "I actually enjoy the role and prefer it now. I can fill that role a lot better than Mogwai."
He's excited to take part in an outdoor production, he said, because he feels it is a lot more interesting for the audience. There are actual mountains in the backdrop, which Hernandez said is rare in most plays.
"It is so awesome," he said, adding that it is a much more involved experience for the audience. "You are in the set of the production, which is very different from sitting in an auditorium."
O'Connor also has several of his family members participating in the play. His wife is the costumer, his son, Adam O'Connor, is the sound designer along with his friend, Jason Parkis, who does the special effects.
O'Connor said this play fills a gap of the availability for families to be entertained on an outdoor stage. He said since the crowd is mainly made up of tourists during the summer they are able to put on the same production each year.
The play will run from July 29 till Aug. 20 and will play of Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 65 and older, $15 for children from 4 to 12 and free for children under four. O'Connor said it is a great deal, especially with how much other things may cost in Lake George.""
