THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As with Your Favorite Broadway Stars- ONCE's Jessie Fisher


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!

In this week's edition, we caught up with Jessie Fisher, who is starring as 'Girl' in Once- currently playing at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?

The Who's Tommy. Still obsessed with that musical.

What is your most unique pre-show ritual?

For Once, Paul always walks past my dressing room and yells "Have a terrible show!" and I cheerily yell back "You're the worst!"

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

A few weeks ago, one of my contact lenses fell out during "When Your Minds Made Up". I am super blind without my contacts so I couldn't really see for the majority of the second act. I'm pretty sure I was looking at everyone cross eyed.

What is the one role you want to play before you die?

Mrs. Lovett

Who is your Broadway crush?

I like to choose a pretend Broadway Boyfriend at Broadway Bowling night. Last week, it was Kyle Scatliffe who is in Les Mis. We have never met. Hi, Kyle. But once Elephant Man opens down the street, my new boyfriend will be Patricia Clarkson. Sorry, Bradley Cooper. It was just never meant to be.

Where can people 'stalk' you online?

My instagram is pretty fun. Its mostly photos of our cast being weird: Jfish1982 and I'm learning to be a better tweeter on twitter : Jessie_BBA
