What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?
What is your most unique pre-show ritual?
The "Ali Shuffle." It reminds me to be spontaneous and fearless on stage.
What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?
When I was understudying the role of Benny in IN THE HEIGHTS on Broadway, I was doing a scene with Mandy Gonzalez, and I butchered some of the Spanish to English translation lyrics at the top of the song "Sunrise." She laughed in my face for the whole song with Lin-Manuel Miranda staring at me from the wings.. ouch. Love you Mandy!
This was a great thing to happen early in my career to always remember... "The show must go on."
What is the one role you want to play before you die?
Coalhouse Walker Jr. from RAGTIME
Who is your Broadway crush?
My fiance' knows I have a huge crush on Sutton Foster. Beautiful, hilarious, talented, and one of the nicest women you'll ever meet.
Where can people stalk you on the web
People will soon be able to stalk me on my website that is coming out this summer! Stay tuned.
