I've been nominated for a BroadwayWorld Central NY Award as Best Actor in a Play for The Tavern at Bridge Street Theatre.
This September, I starred as The Vagabond in Bridge Street Theatre's production of The Tavern directed by Steven Patterson., George M. Cohan's legendary satirical melodramatic farce. George M. Cohan himself played the role of The Vagabond, and it was a great honor and delight to take on the challenge of playing this virtuoso comic role.

On the Catskill stage the fine cast is led by Kane Prestenback as The Vagabond . His lyric tenor voice strikes gongs unsupported by anything but air. His gestures are broad and bold and his tall loose boots hold him fast to the ground even when he leaps upward and onward. As the fifth character to appear out of fourteen (the program gives us twelve but two other men appear without billing) it is his character that sets the pace and poses for the production. From his first appearance this man clearly rules the play and gives it definition. Prestenback is a delight, his physicalization of the character finds the root of the play's long-lasting success.

- J Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus

Kane Prestenback has the right manic energy and twinkle-eyed slyness[to be] wholly successful as the Vagabond.
