How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? Chris Gattelli just mentioned to me that he might have something he wanted my help with. I can’t remember when I found out what it was for, but I was certainly excited.

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? Broadway Bares at Roseland Ballroom. No contest. Our industry lends itself to every being very focused on their own life and career. But for one night every year hundreds and hundreds of Broadway performers come together to put on a brilliant show for a brilliant cause that helps thousands of people in need. It’s amazing to watch, an honor to be a part of, an inspiring to see the difference that art can make in the world.

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? Critics. The fact that critics can still make or break the success of a show despite the movement away from traditional media sources is astounding to me. I’ve seen so many shows where everyone in the audience walks out smiling after having a great time and the show closes after just a few weeks or months. We’ve got to fix that somehow.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? I just saw a documentary on teenage composers in Texas who has their compositions played by the Austin Symphony. These kids are brilliant and they don’t even realize it. I sat there and thought “ok, these 15 year old just wrote a symphony, what did I do today? ”

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Elon Musk. I love entrepreneurial minds!

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… No one. I’ve worked really heard to create the life I want. Wouldn’t trade it for a day with anyone.

To be successful in this business, it takes… Grit.

Tell us a secret. I am CONSTANTLY in search of the perfect corned beef sandwich. Shhhh….
