Hey, I know this is a little off the broadway topic, but where is everybody on the boards from? To add a little broadway spice to it, anyone from broadway originate from your town/area?

I'm from New York...and I'm sure most of you know many broadway actors originated in NYC, so I can cheat on this one.

VEGAS! I'm not sure I know of any Broadway performers from here but bless their souls for getting out of here.

I'm from Long Island, and while a ton of Broadway people come from here, I don't know of any that come from my specific town.
And hang on, when did you win the discus?

I'm a Jersey gal, and lots of performers came from Jersey but I don't think any came right out of my town. A few TV actors are from my town and went to my high school as well as John "Bon jovi". He grew up right down the st. from me. Not Broadway but still it's John!

Yet another Jersey girl (Minus the Jiosy accent. Does anybody actually from NJ talk like that?). I will probably end up in NYC after college. -Penny

Tallulah Bankhead grew up in my town. And while he's not on Broadway yet, Kip Driver from the National tour of Les Mis did too.

I was born in New York (at Lenox Hill Hospital, as a matter of fact) and we lived there until I was four, when we moved to Colorado. We moved so I could grow up in a safer environment, and on the 12th anniversary of our move (April 20, 1999) the Columbine shooting occured a scant two miles from home. How's that for ironic?

Hey there Rose, I went to Pomona HS, not to far from you, huh? Well for now, I am in Colorado. All my stuff is in storage in Jersey, and I will be moving back to NYC or Vegas... After I finish another contract on a cruise ship that ports in Florida... Dang, I sure am slutty with my states, eh?

Saddle Shoe Side Kick: I admit I do have a Jersey accent, but not the "joisy" accent.

Things i say with an accent: Talk (sounding like tawlk)
Dog (dowg) etc. Many fights with cousins from out of state of how to say things.

You went to Pomona, Copeman? I went to Chatfield! Did you graduate within the last two years? Because I wonder if we ever crossed paths at the Thespian convention...that would bee too weird!
