Sans teeth,

A survey for all actors/actresses to fill out:

LAST SHOW ADDED TO YOUR RESUME: Laughing Stock

LAST SHOW YOU AUDITIONED FOR: Laughing Stock

DID YOU GET IT: Yep! And it was a total blast!!!

LAST SONG YOU USED AT AN AUDITION: "Magic To Do" from Pippin

FAVORITE MUSICAL(s): Fiddler on the Roof, Hairspray, Into the Woods, Ragtime and Wicked

FAVORITE ROLE YOU'VE PLAYED, AND FROM WHAT SHOW?: Raja from I Never Saw Another Butterfly.

FAVORITE ROLE OVERALL THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO PLAY: Mercutio from Romeo and Juliet.

SUPERSTITION: You must not name "The Scottish Play," and yellow roses for good luck.

YOUR GOAL IN SHOW BUSINESS: To enjoy my work.

WHAT WAS YOUR VERY FIRST SHOW?: Professional: Cheaper by the Dozen (nothing like the movie) when I was eight, and I did a few church plays before that.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DANCE SOLO?: Nope.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A SINGING SOLO?: Yes.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THE LAST PERSON TO TAKE A BOW? Yes.

HAVE YOU BEEN TO NEW YORK?: Yes - love it!

HAVE YOU BEEN TO LA?: Yes.

WHAT'S THE SCARIEST PART OF AN AUDITION?: The first five seconds after you walk in the door, when you're just getting your bearings and trying to look like you're totally calm and collected.

WHAT'S THE BEST PART OF AN AUDITION?: When it's over. At that point you know it's done and, even if you didn't do well, there's nothing you can do now but wait.

NAME A SHOW YOU WOULD NEVER DO AGAIN: Can't think of one right now.

NAME A SHOW YOU COULD DO FOR YEARS: Les Miserables.

WHAT ARE YOU AUDITIONING FOR NEXT? Wish I knew.

DO YOU KEEP IN TOUCH WITH PAST CAST MEMBERS?: Sometimes.

ON A SCALE OF 1-10, HOW IMPORTANT IS GETTING PAID?: 2.  You still need to eat but if I was concerned about money I would have chosen a different field of work.

SOMETHING EMBARRASSING OR UNEXPECTED THAT HAPPENED TO YOU WHILE ON-STAGE?: Announcing to the entire audience that I wasn't wearing any underwear without realizing that my mic was still on... awesome sound crew.  Awesome.

WHO IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PERSON (ON STAGE OR OFF) THAT YOU HAVE EVER WORKED WITH?: Myself.  I'm a very tough critic of my own performances and always beat myself up over every little mistake.

EVER BEEN NAKED ONSTAGE: Nope.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN KILLED?: Yes.

PLAYED DRUNK?: Nope.

PLAYED SOMEONE HALF YOUR AGE?: Nope.

PLAYED SOMEONE TWICE YOUR AGE?: Nope.

CRIED?: Yes.  Most of my on-stage tears were shed during Godspell.  After all, "If you're not crying real tears you may as well not be crying."

FIRED A GUN?: No.  But I've had one fired at me... does that count?

BEEN DRENCHED? (I'll go with Collin's answer) I've been drenched with sweat.  HUGE wedding dress dress plus waltzing plus turning stage plus partner who really doesn't know how to waltz (god bless 'im) equals Les Miserables.

BEEN IN A DREAM SEQUENCE: Nope.

BEEN KISSED?: Mope.  Plus I'm saving myself anyway (HAH!).
