Most Terrifying Moment: In a musical review I'm supposed to sing "Dancing' Through Life" from Wicked. We were 3 months in to the run and people were starting to go on auto pilot from time to time. Comes time to do my song, I open my lips to start singing the first lyrics (which are 'Dancing' Through Life') and by the time I got done with the word "through" I realized I couldn't remember the lyrics. So, I ended up singing those first 3 words for about the next 20 seconds of the song.
Funniest performance anecdote: Some actors develop pre-show superstitions that become so regular they have to be done night after night. Growing up playing baseball I have a tendency to find each member of the cast at places, give them a quick pat on the butt (or lower hip) and say "good game". One night, unbeknownst to me, decided to give me a quick, yet hard, little tap in the nuts throughout the course of the show. Well played cast... well played!
Theatrical High point: In college, I was part of a dance show where I got to do a short tap duet with the legendary Donald O'Connor. Years later (after he passed away) I got to play Don Lockwood in a production of Singin' in the Rain. Playing that Gene Kelly part with the memory of dancing with the original Cosmo always put a smile on my face.
You as a performer in three words: Consistent yet unpredictable
What do you want the audience to know about the current show? Keep an open mind. It's a great story, don't stay fixated on the things that you might not be used to seeing onstage.
Tell us three things about you that have nothing to do with theatre:
I get very upset when I have to miss watching a Bronco's game. Even if it's because I'm in a show.
I played a lot of baseball growing up, and I wish I still had to opportunity to play sometimes.
I hate to cook food like Ramen, or Mac&Cheese. Anything that takes 10 minutes. But I love to cook food that takes time to prepare and allows me to cook for 45 minutes or so.
What's your Actor's Nightmare? I have a reoccurring dream that I arrive late to a show, someone has moved all my costumes, a new song was added that I don't know the words to, and I can't remember the choreography to one of the numbers. No one else seems to be bothered by anything, even though all of their careers seem to depend on what I do during that show.
