Where are you from? Born Portland, ME, raised in Summit, NJ
Broadway credits: a bunch – [ed. note: check out his PlaybillVault page!]
How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I was doing “Very Good Eddie” up at Goodspeed. Michael Price has brought it back three times that summer to try to find a producer for NY. He told us that David Merrick had agreed to produce it, but I don’t remember how I received the news.
What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? The BC/EFA Easter Bonnet show.
What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? That actors don’t make more of an effort to ingratiate themselves with the crew.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Lots of stuff: people battling cancer; people working with the disabled; my recently widowed 93-year-old father trying to reconstruct his life.
If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Barack Obama, after he leaves office.
If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… Nope, I’m happy being me.
To be successful in this business, it takes…Tenacity, perseverance and drive. Talent is good, but the other three attributes trump talent.
Tell us a secret. I am jumping ship from one regional theatre job to another.
