What’s your earliest theatre memory? My first stage appearance at 5 years old I played King Solomon at the Y Summer camp. It was a musical and I had the lead. I appeared in Side By Side By Sondheim and a Cole Porter review 25 years later at The Sharon Playhouse in CT. Those are my musical theater credits.

The Boston Theatre Conference is focusing on the lively, lush and local aspects of our theatre community. What do you think? Things have grown amazingly since I first arrived. There were three contracts, The Lyric, ART and the Huntington. The Lyric at the time was the only one that hired locally.
