Stephen's Episode: Writing for Ensemblists (#34)

Where are you from? Pittsburgh, PA

Broadway credits: Once On This Island; My Favorite Year; Proposals (incidental music); Ragtime;  Seussical; Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life; Ragtime 2009 Broadway Revival; Rocky.

How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? Lynn Ahrens and I wrote Once On This Island, which was originally produced at Playwrights Horizons Off-Broadway. We got some terrific reviews and moved to Broadway five months later to my favorite theater, the Booth. A dream come true!

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? The Easter Bonnet competition and the weeks leading up to it. So much goodwill for a great cause.

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? That we are part of the living history of Broadway. To have just played a theater (the Winter Garden) where Al Jolson made his stage debut is mind-blowing. It’s a thrill to be working in a building that premiered West Side Story, Mame and Funny Girl. Wonderful to be part of that tradition.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? My partner Trevor’s cooking and his kindness.

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Pope Francis.

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… I wouldn’t trade places. Happy as myself.

To be successful in this business, it takes… Talent, guts, commitment, perseverance, desire and passion.

Tell us a secret. I’m glad this musical theater thing worked out because it’s the only thing I know how to do.
