Vacation Swing for the Male Ensemble.

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

My agent made it very special. He had me on speakerphone and everyone in his office cheered “You’re going to Broadway!” I happened to be surrounded by friends when I found out. We all jumped up and down and laughed and screamed a lot.

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

The most surprising thing has been the speed at which I learned the show. I surprised myself with how much I was able to retain in such a short amount of time. 

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

I’m most looking forward to the idea of experiencing the show from multiple points of view. As a swing, I get the opportunity to connect and perform with different people every night. I think that’s a fun way to keep my Broadway experience fresh and almost never ending because there’s always something new to discover.
