About the Director:
Prior to STUCK, Berry made his feature film debut with the border drama FRONTERA, which he directed and co-wrote. The film stars Ed Harris, Michael Pena, Eva Longoria, Amy Madigan and Aden Young. Previously Berry directed and co-produced two award winning short films, MIRA and DAY OF THE GRACKLE. As an actor Berry appeared on Broadway in the Tony Award, Pulitzer Prize winning, Next To Normal. Other Broadway and national tour credits include: Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard, The Who’sTommy, Mamma Mia. Off Broadway, Berry appeared in a critically acclaimed production of Moby Dick as Starbuck, and was nominated for a Drama Desk award for Best featured actor. Berry received a scholarship to the United States International University, School Of Performing And Visual Arts, and In New York studied with such luminaries as Austin Pendleton, Wynn Handman and Uta Hagen.

Director’s Statement:
I have lived and worked in New York for a long time. I have ridden the subway way more times than I care to recount. During those rides I met, or perhaps stated more accurately, encountered and experienced, some of the most amazing humans and events that anyone could ever imagine. The story, the characters, events and the music in STUCK are meant to celebrate the tremendous heart, grit, generosity and diversity that I have witnessed and experienced in the people of New York City. I hope that STUCK also illuminates the irony and the tremendous isolation one can feel, even while living in a city surrounded by over 8 million others.
STUCK is my love letter to New York City.
