What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you?  I am fascinated with the history of all the different broadway houses. I love the stories, the people, the ghosts. 

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Besides my wife ( who truly inspires me daily)? Music. Every day….and the kids in Matilda. They are a great reminder of why we all started doing this in the first place. 

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… my wife. I love our morning moments. 

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… Mo Brady. That dude is hilarious. 

To be successful in this business, it takes… tenacity, a sense of humor, a positive attitude, a thick skin, belief in yourself, and a massive LOVE for what you do

Tell us a secret. I suck at math.
