Where are you from? Garner, NC. Right outside of Raleigh.
Broadway credits: Glory Days, Rock of Ages, The Last Ship, School of Rock (and a few others that vanished haha)
How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? My buddy Nick Blaemire, who wrote Glory Days, called me secretly after my audition and told me. I died.
What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? So many, but the Broadway Show League (softball) is my all-time favorite.
What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? Again, so many things, but which shows actually make it and survive and which ones do not absolutely intrigues me.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? My mother everyday. For so many reasons. Reminds me to be a better person, to be healthy. So many things.
If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be... First thought... Michael Jordan. My childhood hero.
If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose... Maybe Sting? That man has it all. He makes money before his feet touch the ground. And he's a real rock star. I've played fake rock stars, so I wonder what it would be like to actually be a real one for a day. To be able to write like that, sing like that. Good lord.
To be successful in this business, it takes... Tenacity. I always say the people on Broadway are the ones who never gave up. Never gets easier.
Tell us a secret.... I am currently undefeated in Wii tennis in the men's dressing room at School of Rock. :)
