THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As with Your Favorite Broadway Stars- Greg Hildreth
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 saw Les Mis on a high school trip to NYC. My appetite was sated by touring shows like Aida, Titanic and Showboat that passed through Boston, my hometown.
What is your most unique pre-show ritual?
Push-ups? I guess that's not unique. Before every show I do need to give a wink to the framed picture of Bert Lahr that sits on my dressing room table.
What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?
I choked on a piece of orange once and had to give myself the heimlich right before walking onstage. My life flashed before my eyes.
What is the one role you want to play before you die?
Estragon in Waiting for Godot.
Who is your Broadway crush?
