With my dear pal Esme in high school. Me: Will. She: Ado Annie. Oklahoma!
I was playing Hanschen opposite Gideon Glick as Ernst in Spring Awakening and we had to kiss in one of the scenes. As a straight man, I think it's pretty awesome that my first onstage kiss was with a guy.
I did The Music Man in high school and the guy playing Harold Hill said he was going to slip me the tongue. He did. It's on tape and it's gross.
As Georg Nowack in She Loves Me my sophomore year of high school. We had fake snow come down right when it happened, and one night it took a really long time for it to come down… we had to wait there, lips locked. There are worse problems for a girl-crazy 16 year-old.
