Kevin Chamberlin (My Favorite Year 1992/Seussical 2000)

I am profoundly and eternally grateful to Steve and Lynn. They're responsible for many significant firsts in my career. They cast me in my first Broadway show – in the chorus of My Favorite Year - which, subsequently, was my first Broadway original cast album. Five years later, they gave me my first starring role in a Broadway musical - Horton the Elephant in Seussical. Last year, I made my Carnegie Hall debut, singing "Alone in the Universe" from Seussical with the NY Pops. I wouldn't be where I am without them. Their music is a gift to actors. It comes from their hearts, which in turn - touches ours.
