Tommar's Episode: Shakespeare in the Park (#28)

Where are you from? Born in Topeka, KS raised on Air Force Bases across US/England

Broadway credits: The Book of Mormon, Hair, Hairspray, Lestat, Never Gonna Dance, The Music Man, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I got a call from my agent that a show I’d been working on for about a year in readings, would be opening on Broadway. And they wanted me to be in it! I couldn’t say anything. My heart started beating so fast and I was overwhelmed at the thought that I would get to act on a Broadway stage. My agent said that I didn’t sound as excited as he thought I would, but it’s because I was doing a really good job of hiding the fact that I was crying. So instead of jumping up and down when I hung up, I just sat down and finished my cry because I was so thankful and needed to “feel all the feelings.”

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? Broadway Show League Softball!!! I love that you get to spend every Thursday in the park with friends having fun. It’s a time when box office, awards, reviews, and backstage dynamics don’t matter. Everyone just comes out to have a good time.

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? The drive and determination of the people in the community. I’ve done some shows that were “less than successful” but I don’t remember a time when everyone on stage and in rehearsal wasn’t doing everything they could to make that show the best it could be. It’s so inspiring to see a group of people give everything they have to solve problems and try to make something work no matter what’s being said about them or the show outside that stage door. Even if the show only runs a week, those experiences inspire me and show me that the creative spirit thrives even in less than perfect circumstances.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? My biggest inspiration lately would have to be the Gluten Free Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese from S'mac. I can conquer the world after the right meal and that one does it every time! (yes, I did just say I was inspired by food).

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Steve McQueen. I’d love to just hear him talk about art and directing for a couple of hours.

To be successful in this business, it takes… Discipline, a non-theater related hobby, and good friends.

Tell us a secret. Winter is coming.
