1. What is your name and hometown?

My name is Nicholas Masson, and I’m from Hudson, NH.


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

I’m the male vacation swing, but my debut was in the track normally done by Wayne “Juice” Mackins.


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

I had done the lab in early 2018, so the company already knew I was familiar with the show. I received an email from the company manager about a month and a half ago asking if I would be willing to join the company as their new vacation swing. 


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

The most surprising thing about this was how fast it all happens. I learned my track the day before I went on, so I guess just how quickly you have to be ready because you never know when you’re gonna need to go on. I found out I was going on only about an hour before the show. So I had to quickly go over everything I learned the day before. It’s Crazy! 

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

I’m looking forward to sharing the stage with such an incredibly talented and supportive cast. These are some of the best that Broadway has to offer, and I’m so excited to be able to have the chance to learn hands on with the most amazing Broadway veterans. Between Josh, Brooks, Beth, Chris, and Angie, I’m getting a free master class in Musical Theater. And this Ensemble pushes me to always give 1000% onstage. Anytime I feel like I might not gonna make it through a number, I look at my cast mates onstage and they give me this look like, “We can do it! Keep pushing! Don’t Stop! Go Go Go Go!” So to have them with me onstage is so comforting.
