THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As with Your Favorite Broadway Stars- SCHOOL OF ROCK's Luca Padovan
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!
What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?The first Broadway show I saw was The Little Mermaid (starring Sierra Boggess)!
The practical stuff I do before the show is I drink tea, steam and warm up but I guess the fun thing I do is have a Hamilton dance party before every show.
What is your most unique pre-show ritual?
My most memorable "the Show Must Go On" moment is at the beginning of "Stick it To The Man" I started to have a nosebleed so I had to do the rest of the number sniffing up blood so I wouldn't get it on my costume or sets. Another most memorable "the Show Must Go On" moment is when I was inNewsies, I had a loose tooth right before "King of New York" and I asked my guardian, Vanessa to pull it out because I was afraid of losing it on stage. She did, I screamed and got shushed because it was so loud that the audience could probably hear me. I went on stage and did the entire number swallowing blood from the lost tooth! I guess I have had many bad experiences with blood.
What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?
There are many roles I want to play before I die and I can't think of just one! So here goes: The Baker in Into the Woods, Fiyero in Wicked, The Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, and Alexander Hamilton inHamilton.
What is the one role you want to play before you die?
My Broadway crushes are: Sara Chase and Laura Osnes.
