Everyone’s has a place they started. My professional career started at @themuny. ⠀⠀ So, yeah, this is a hilarious picture of me dressed as a crow for Wizard of Oz but you know what I see? I see a kid who was figuring out this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. I see a kid who was realizing all those summer nights going to see shows at @the Muny had shaped him in ways he didn’t know how to express. ⠀⠀ This theater and the people (past & present) who run it mean so much to me. I’ve sat in the front row to the free seats (there’s a 1000 of them by the way) from the time I was a kid because I was lucky enough to be from St Louis and have parents that loved the theatre. I’ve met lifelong friends and seen & gotten to work alongside legends of the theatre. After @pattimurin and I were married we started rehearsal for a show 3 days later. It’s because people want to be there. They know it’s a special place to spend a piece of their summer. They know that there’s no place that quite compares and that once you’ve had that unique experience you want to repeat it. ⠀⠀ Happy 100th Birthday @themuny. Thank you for my start. Thank you for all the special memories and friendships and I hope to make many more in years to come. ⠀⠀ Most of all though? Thanks for the Crow Costume and the sweat. So much sweat. ⠀⠀ I love you and you’ve never looked better. ⠀⠀ #muny100#summerstock#theatre#musicaltheatre#stlouis#summernights
Getting in on the #oldheadshotday with two classic looks. The casual “hey look I found a wall to sit against” followed by the “I’d like to be in a boy band please”. Photos by @rdonnellphoto who has never worked with a worse model.
#FBF to a wonderful night at the #BrookBrothers200 celebration! Thank you to @brooksbrothers for always making me feel like a million bucks and for letting me onstage to introduce the incredible @ledisi. Also Paul Simon walked right by me backstage so that was pretty ridiculously cool.
