It's terrific. Jersey Boys is dynamically alive in music while, as a drama, it catches the very texture, almost the smell, of its time.

Welcome to THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As with your favorite Broadway stars. Want to know what hooked them to a career in the theater? Their dream roles? Their Broadway crushes? Read on!
What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?
I am from the 818 area code in Southern California. Growing up, I was lucky enough to see incredible theatre all over the Los Angeles area. It wasn't until the year 2000 that I saw my first Broadway show - THE MUSIC MAN with Craig Bierko and Rebecca Luker - and it was awesome.
What is your most unique pre-show ritual?
I wouldn't call it so much a pre-show ritual, but I do like to pop into all the dressing rooms and see everyone as themselves before I see them as their characters.
What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?
I was delivering a direct address in Act 2. A woman from the balcony suddenly yells "Stop! Stop the show! He's not breathing." I pause. BEAT. She then shouts, "Never mind... he was sleeping." I was relieved he was alive, but was troubled that he was asleep. I proceeded to continue.
What is the one role you want to play before you die?
The role I want to play is the one I originate. So, who knows what that will be? But I know I am going to like creating it.
Who is your Broadway crush?
Kelli O'Hara. I think 'Anna' and 'Frankie' should grab a coffee and discuss Siam and Jersey; and that many moons ago I sang "Getting To Know You" in "The Addams Family" movie. Kelli sings it much better.
