1. What is your name and hometown?

Daryl Tofa. Orange County, Southern California.

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

Martin Jitla, Kevin G. understudy in Mean Girls.

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

It was right after the final callback. We just got done dancing, singing, and reading sides in front of the whole creative team, and then I walked out of the room with this huge overwhelming feeling that I just booked the job. Later that day, Bethany Knox, the casting director, texted me saying that they want me for the part.

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

The most surprising thing about preparing to perform this show is you have to just go and take a leap of faith. There is no time for hesitation or second guessing, like when the show is going, you just have to jump on the train and ride it. It really is non-stop for the ensemble.

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

I am looking forward to discovering every new small detail of the show that makes the show so unique that you might not catch just watching the show a couple times. I want to be able to fully encapsulate every bit of this show and express the vision that the creators wanted the world to see!
