Play It Cool With Max Clayton, The Charismatic "Riff" of Signature's Intimate New West Side Story!
Signature Theatre's energetic, intimate new production of West Side Story has been dazzling DC-area audiences. Max Clayton, who lends his skills to iconic gang leader Riff, invites us backstage and into the world of West Side Story!
Hey! Max Clayton here. I'll be sharing some 2-show-day "frabbajabba" at the beautiful Signature Theatre. As you can tell, West Side has always been my favorite. I played Baby John in 2007, and now I get to play my favorite dude, Riff!
The obligatory "Good morning!" picture from the most comfortable bed in the world. My family's visiting so my Mom and Dad definitely woke me up like the good old days.
First things first.
Quick workout with Tony Neidenbach (Big Deal) before heading to breakfast with my family in DC.
I HAD to bring them to my favorite brunch spot downtown, Founding Farmers! Nooo we didn't get the Beignets for dessert with chocolate sauce. Definitely not.
We had to run back to my house because I forgot my charger. This is my house.
I still can't get over how absolutely stunning this city is.
Who is that guy?
The incredible Austin Colby (Tony) helps me sign in. #wombtotomb
