I did Caroline, or Change in LA and San Francisco with a cast primarily made up of actors who'd done the show on Broadway. I was a standby and it was the coolest gig to have to be offstage for, because those performances slayed me night after night. Sooooo good!

Sean Hayes
Damn Yankees 2008.

Matt Cavenaugh
I played opposite Elizabeth Stanley in Footloose at Theatre by the Sea in Rhode Island. She was terrific. I was terrible.

Gregg Edelman
I played Lancelot to David McCallum's King Arthur in Camelot. I was blown away to be acting with the same guy who played Illya Kuryakin on "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." When my brother and I as boys played spies, he would be Napoleon Solo and I would be Illya. Even then I liked the off-beat character rather than the leading man.

Thomas Sadoski
Mark Brokaw, Chris Burney and Carole Rothman went crazy and decided to hire me to understudy Second Stage's This Is Our Youth. A mass psychosis I will forever be grateful for.
