What show recently impressed you?
I finally saw War Horse, and I have to say that I was totally blown away. I was familiar with the book and thought it wouldn't compare. Boy was I wrong. It was a theatrical event that I'll never forget. The artistry is superb. And, all I wanted to do when I left the theatre was to rush home and hold my dog.

What production are you most excited to see?
There are numerous things I'd like to see but I hear that Peter and the Starcatcher is not to be missed.

What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
Years ago I did a production of Shenandoah and played James. But years have passed, and now I'm coming into the age to play Charlie Anderson, the father. I've always loved that score.

What are your current/upcoming projects?
I'm looking forward to doing Closer Than Ever at The York Theatre. It's a great show with a great cast and staff.
