ONSTAGE & BACKSTAGE: The Mystery of a Music Director and Saying Goodbye to Unbroken Circle

Speaking of White, she's coming to the opening of Disaster! next week. We have previews this whole week, and next Monday is our official opening! The show has so many moments I look forward to doing onstage and what makes it even more enjoyable for me is the fact that the entire cast sings back-up throughout the entire show. So while Jennifer Simard is onstage belting "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" (she plays the nun), we're in the wings, watching her and singing all that sassy harmony. It's so much fun! Go to our website DisasterMusical.com and click the tab for "celebrity disasters" to watch all the disco ball accidents we've done with Broadway celebs: Andrea Martin, Santino Fontana, Laura Osnes, Ann Harada, Jane Krakowski and Billy Porter.

Seth waits backstage at the synagogue

This week was the final week of Unbroken Circle and our amazing producer, Mary J. Davis, had a closing night party at her apartment. There are two pictures on the side of this column: One of the cast party, which was happening simultaneously while I was "backstage" at the synagogue waiting to go on. Take a gander!

Disaster! plays Mon, Tues, Wed and Friday so I'm able to do shows out-of-town over the weekends. On Nov. 9-10, I'll be in Tampa, Florida at the Straz Center. Come see me deconstruct Bea Arthur, Barbra and, my new favorite, The Osmonds singing Fiddler on the Roof! Get tix/info here and peace out!
