What I would like is a great, original show... I started out doing revivals, which was wonderful as I worked with the original creators and producers.....Herman Levin, the original producer of My Fair Lady, ...Richard Rodgers, Billy Hammerstein and Agnes de Mille re-created my Oklahoma!, and George Abbott at 96 directed On Your Toes... It would be my wish to continue and end my career creating something new for the musical theatre...
It's a hard question. I was raised with old classic musicals, so I have always dreamed of playing many of them. Especially the parts of my childhood hero, John Raitt, like Billy Bigelow in Carousel and Sid Sorokin in Pajama Game. Those, however, are a few years off for me still. I would also love Show Boat to be revived. I love that show and would love to play Gaylord Ravenal in a few years.
