What’s your favorite musical that isn’t named Enter Love?
My favorite musical is Into the Woods. I mean you can’t go wrong with Sondheim!! Besides, I’d love to play Jack

How old were you when you first performed?
I was probably 3 or 4. I did Kindermusik…

If your life was made into a movie, who would play you?
I’ve been told I look like Patrick Dempsey, so I’m cool with having McDreamy play me :)

Who should host the Tony awards next year?
Matthew Morrison, star of GLEE, as well as other very successful Broadway shows like, Hairspray and Light in the Piazza, should be all over that Tony’s stage.

Who’s your favorite performer?
My favorite performer is Brian D’Aarcy James. He’s been in so many musicals where he has to play so many different characters. From Wild Party, to Dirty Rotten Scoundrals, to The Apple Tree, to Shrek!! He does it all. And He’s got quite the voice to boot. Right now he’s in a limited run of Next to Normal, which I just got to see in NYC, and he was incredible!!
