Beginning in the mid 90s when he went on a 2 1/2 yr walk-about, playing with bands and artists from Tijuana to Buenos Aires. During this time Dexter visited Brazil for 10 months, where he recorded with samba icon Beth Carvalho, and where met the late Gaudencio Thiago de Mello, composer/percussionist who in early life had coached soccer legend Garincha, with a championship Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro team.

Improvisational brilliance and authenticity make every Playback Theatre West show a memorable experience. Once a month PTW plays back YOUR stories, feelings and quandaries - and twice in a season Dexter Payne falls into the rotation of great musicians who take turns improvising along with these talented actors, providing accompaniment to the playback as it unfolds. Thanksgiving is always a special show - don't miss this one!
