Other New York stage credits include My Fair Lady directed by Michael Arden and Starting Here, Starting Now directed by its lyricist, Richard Maltby, Jr. A graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, BCT starred as Danny Zuko in Grease at Paper Mill Playhouse and Enjolras in LES MISERABLES at the Muny while pursing his BFA.
