PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: A Two-Show Day With Jesus Christ Superstar's "King Herod," Bruce Dow
Spend a two-show day at the new revival of Jesus Christ Superstar on Broadway. Bruce Dow, who brings down the house with his comedic turn as King Herod, takes Playbill.com through a busy day at the Neil Simon Theatre. Read the Playbill.com story.
Every morning begins with making sure my iPod and iPhone are fully charged. Then I charge myself with a big cup of coffee and the daily news - then, I check out what's on playbill.com for the day!
Last winter, my sister, who lives on the west coast and whom I see all too infrequently, took me to an Ottawa Senator's home game - it was a freak occurrence that we just happened to be in the same city at the same time.
The DREADED GLOVES. Once these are on, I am ready to face the world! (to be explained later)
Leaving home. The 5-story walk-up. I'd better have all I need for the day, 'cause I ain't going back up there again until I absolutely have to! I.E. Not till tonight!
Spring in Greenwich Village! Foliage and flowers are welcome treats!
Every morning I pass a pet store window full of puppies. It takes all my strength not to go in and buy them all. They are so danged adorable. And I so miss my two feline girls back home so much - Lily and Alice.
The descent! High Ho, High Ho! It's off to a two-show day I go!
... only to get off the subway in Wonderland! 50th and Broadway!
Arriving at work on "Des McAnuff Way" - better known as 52nd Street. Des, of course, directed both our show at the Neil Simon, and Jersey Boys, which plays across the street at the August Wilson Theatre.
This is the amazing cast I get to work with every day. It's an incredibly strong company of actor/singer/dancers and, I believe, as diverse a cast as you will find on Broadway. You should hear the gales of laughter coming from the ladies dressing room.
