What is your professional background?
I am a vocal music educator at Kimberly High School.
What is your dream job?
I’m doing it.
What is your favorite Broadway show?
Can’t name one, so I’ll name my current 5 (in no particular order).
-The Last Five Years: Brilliant contemporary music and very intelligent and honest portrayal of a failing relationship.
-Bat Boy: A very quirky and funny telling of an “outsider” story.
-Les Mis: Epic. That is all.
-Putnam County Spelling Bee: Funniest show I’ve ever seen.
-Avenue Q: Also, the funniest show I’ve ever seen.
Have you ever been disappointed by a performance? Why? I saw Phantom of the Opera in New York a few years ago, and realized that the show actually isn’t really very good at all. There’s a great deal of spectacle, glitz, and romance, but not much substance or compelling story. I know that everyone is supposed to love this show, but there’s really not much there that is engaging.
