A few highlights from an incredibly funny, adorable, and brilliant Cue & A:

If you could go back in time and catch any Broadway show, what would it be?: I think it would have been cool to see Streisand in Funny Girl and Ray Bolger in Where's Charley? and I often think about how crazy and exciting it must have been to see Oklahoma! without knowing anything about it, so my answer is original cast, Follies.

Special skills: I learned to spin a rope when I was doing Oklahoma! in summer stock, and I do a pretty good Gwen Verdon impersonation (which also means I can do Ann Reinking, and Lenora Nemetz too)

Favorite cereal: Blueberry Morning (and in my head when I pour it, I sing "Blueberry Morning" to the tune of Ben and Sally's "Too Many Mornings"...yes I'm weird.)

Anyone who chooses Never Swat A Fly from JUST IMAGINE as an audition song has my eternal adoration!

Oh God, I just did that when I read it (before I got to the parenthetical about how he does it too).

HUNTER BELL GET OUT OF MY HEAD.

I thought that was the most adorable thing I have ever heard in my entire life.
And I love how he calls it "Ben and Sally's 'Too Many Mornings.'" That's a sign of a true FOLLIES fan, and I love him the more for it!
The story about his worst costume ever made me laugh out loud.

That was great!

I LOVE Hunter so much, he's my favorite tosser I must admit.
His little obsession with Bernadette is just adorable.

I adore Hunter.

And Tulita, that "Never Swat A Fly" video is something else!

"I have also met him in person, and I find him to be quite funny actually. Arrogant and often misinformed, but still funny."
