About Davis

 I was born in Atlanta, GA. Graduated with a B.S. from Northwestern University’s School of Speech. Then I lived, studied and worked for three and a half years in London. During that time (thank you, Roger H Simon) I performed at The Mickery, Holland, and at The Royal Court, London. Great years to be young and in Europe!

I got my first Equity contract in 1972 in What The Butler Saw at the Old Orchard Dinner Theatre in the Chicago suburbs. (I saw the premiere in London with Ralph Richardson.)

I was lucky to play Young Charlie in the world premiere of Da (Olney Theater), and later, Charlie in The Foreigner
(Theatre Virginia), Festé in Twelfth Night (Hartford Stage), Elwood P. Dowd in Harvey (Arkansas Rep), Arthur in New-Found-Land (British-American Repertory Co.), The Duke in Measure for Measure (Lark Theatre), and Jane/Lord Edgar in The Mystery of Irma Vep

I met my wife, costume designer Ingrid Price, while playing Hamlet as a Guest Artist at Florida State University in 1980.

Check my IMDb page for my TV and Film roles. 

Since 2010, my wife produced and I directed 4 short films. All have been in festivals and won awards.

I performed twice with my sister, Harriet Hall. In 1974 we appeared in the world premiere of
Hugh Leonard’s Summer  and in 1980 in Hay Fever as brother and sister with Celeste Holm.
