1. What's your name and hometown?

Phil Sloves from Fair Lawn, NJ

2. What is your role/track in your Broadway debut?

I am a swing and understudy Mr. Krabs and Patrick Star!

3. How did you find out you had booked the part?

I got a call from my agent only four days before I started rehearsals! I was moving my friend into an apartment. 

4. What's been the most surprising thing about preparing to perform the show?

The most surprising thing has been how much you are expected to learn as a swing. Some of our swings cover 9+ roles in the ensemble WHILE understudying a principal role. 

5. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?

My favorite moments have been my debut! My first week, I played Mr. Krabs for a two-show day. Then the next day, I went on for Patrick. Then the following day, I was back to Mr Krabs. It was the most thrilling experience of my life to share that stage with such incredible talent in a BEST MUSICAL! It’s a dream come true and I cannot wait to see what comes next.
