How did you hear you’d booked your first broadway show? 
I was out on the road with the arena tour of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular (I was Santa :) - and my agent phoned me and said something like “well, Broadway called…!”

What is your favorite event in the broadway community?
Broadway Barks - because I love visiting all the dogs and I hope that people adopt shelter dogs. 

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? The passion and dedication of everyone involved - actors, directors, designers, stage managers, crew, and especially the fans. I am so amazed and humbled when i see lines of fans waiting for rush tickets at 6am, or waiting by the stage door after the show to meet the cast.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Spending time in nature

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Bill Cosby

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… Colin Kaepernick (49ers QB)

To be successful in this business, it takes… Passion, commitment, honesty, kindness, and more than a bit of luck
