Welcome to THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As With Your Favorite Broadway Stars. Want to know what hooked them to a career in the theater? Their dream roles? Their Broadway crushes? Read on!
In this next edition, we caught up with Adam Chanler-Berat, who is starring as 'Boy' in PETER AND THE STARCATCHER- currently playing at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre!
What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?
I'm pretty sure it was Marin Mazzie, Audra McDonald and Brian Stokes Mitchell in RAGTIME.
What is your most unique pre-show ritual?
Lately, I've been listening to this incredible NPR Fresh Air compilation interview with the recently passed Maurice Sendak.
What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?
Right after I shouted 'the power blows' in the opening number of RENT, the power did in fact blow. And I started talking to the audience about it. I was a little too proud of myself for my quickness, then we were told to leave the stage...
What is the one role you want to play before you die?
Well, Hamlet, when I'm skilled enough. But also George in SUNDAY IN THE PARK...
Who is your Broadway crush?
Jay Armstong Johnson. And Celia Keenan Bolger.
