In this week's edition, we caught up with John Treacy Egan, who directed Peter, Who?, running at NYMF through July 29.

What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?

The Magic Show starring Doug Henning and Anita Morris, by the great Stephen Schwartz. I was hooked. If you don't know "SOLID SILVER PLATFORM SHOES" find it and give it a listen! RuPaul needs to do a cover!

What is your most unique pre-show ritual?

I don't really have a ritual, but sometimes I'll rehearse something on a Tuesday before a show to make sure I know it especially because the day off. When you do the same show 8 times a week, skipping a day kinda feels makes me feel "behind the beat". I also usually stop for a Diet Coke on the way to the theater.

What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?

There was a terrible accident at a show I was in at "5 minutes to places" that I have a hard time talking about to this day. No one died but it was horrible and still haunts a lot of people, especially the person who suffered the accident. The audience waited in their seats for an hour until it was agreed that the show would go on. The cast did it for the people who knew nothing of what happened and patiently waited to be entertained and even though everyone behind the scenes was devastated,the company didn't want to disappoint the audience.

Who is your Broadway crush?

Any performer who's talented, funny, generous, and kind. Andrew Garfield signed every program for people waiting outside of ANGELS. So did Lee Pace! THAT is a long evening of theater and yet they stayed for fans. Crushworthy!
