Backstage with Richard Ridge: Cash In with JUNK Leading Man- Steven Pasquale!
He has stolen hearts in Madison county, robbed settlers on the Natchez Trace, and now he's thieving on Wall Street. Or at least the characters he's played have...
One of Broadway's favorite leading men, Steven Pasquale, stars in JUNK- a new play by Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtar. Set in the high-flying, risk-seeking, teetering financial world of the 1980s and inspired by the real junk bond kings of the day, this riveting story shows us from the inside how money became the only thing that mattered.
Watch below as Pasquale chats with Richard Ridge about his new role, how starring in plays compares to leading musicals, and so much more!
