First Broadway show you ever saw? Dracula (starring Frank Langella). It was the sets by Edward Gorey that really fascinated me. And the tickets were only $15! Seriously. It was 1975.
When did you first get involved in theatre? In high school and then again in community theater in Michigan where I worked for awhile.
When did you first become involved with SRO? I auditioned, but didn’t get a part. So, I told them that I played the clarinet. That always works. So, my first show was Into the Woods as a member of the orchestra circa 1991.
If you had to pick a favorite what show would you say was your favorite SRO show? Forever Plaid. World Goes Round. Smokey Joe’s Café. Assassins. If I had to pick just four. Do you like directing or performing more? It depends. I really do enjoy performing, but I have found that directing has its own special rewards.
If you could go back in time and catch any Broadway show, what would it be? A Chorus Line.
