Mark is honored beyond measure to join the Phantom cast in a role he has dreamed of playing since he was 14. Mark was most recently seen in the world premiere musical of Treasure Island. He has toured the country clad in spandex covering all three fathers in the National Tour of Mamma Mia!and in a pinstriped suit in the National Tour of Guys & Dolls. He has performed in regional theatres across the country in a wide range of roles from Brick in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof to El Gallo in The Fantasticks. Favorite roles include Beast (Beauty and the Beast), Sky (Guys & Dolls), Kent (King Lear), Harold Hill (The Music Man), Higgins (My Fair Lady) and many others, but he doesn't want to bore you. Mark would like to thank his friends and family for their constant love and support. He would like to thank Tara Rubin Casting, the creative team, and Hartig/Hilepo for believing in him. Dreams really can come true. Thank you for supporting live Union theatre.
