How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I got a phone call from the company manager on Crazy For You on a Friday night at 11:30 PM.
What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? Definitely backstage birthdays - intermission birthday cake and a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday."
What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? Playbill’s "At This Theatre” page. I love learning which actors tread the boards in the hit shows of yore.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Tennis. Serena Williams. Lleyton Hewitt.
If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Hillary Clinton.
If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… Queen Elizabeth the Second, queen of Australia.
To be successful in this business, it takes... talent, timing, luck, a good attitude and good humour.
Tell us a secret. I arrived in NYC on a Sunday 25 years ago, and crashed an audition on Tuesday. The following Monday, I was cast in a big revue bound for 7 performances in 7 European capitals called "Broadway Tonight." Billed as "17 Broadway Stars, from 17 Broadway Shows!!“ (Like Adriane Lenox, Roz Ryan, Marcus Lovett... and me?) First day of rehearsal at 890 Broadway, I couldn't sign the work documents since I was in the US on a tourist visa, so I marched off to the producers' office and convinced them to pay me cash under the table! Which they did! Shhhhhh.
