September 22, 2010

With opening night less than two weeks away, the cast and crew are hard at work. This entry is the first in a “Meet the Cast” series that will introduce you to the fabulous actors of “Once Upon a Time in New Jersey”.

Name:  David Perlman

Hometown:  Closter, New Jersey!

First musical you ever saw:  Guys and Dolls at my local high school; it changed the course of my life.

Favorite Italian food:  Gelato!

Favorite song in the show:  One of a Kind, definitely.  It is constantly in my head.

Favorite place in New Jersey:  My parents’ house.  I love going home for the holidays.

Favorite rehearsal moment so far:  Briga and I have a real affinity for a very clever food moment that Christine created in Quando Scungili.  We still can hardly get through the moment without laughing about it!  I don’t want to give it away, so you’ll have to come see it for yourself!

Favorite place in New Jersey: I haven’t been to enough of it for me to be able to answer this question. Whoops.

Favorite rehearsal moment so far: Blocking the bit between Billy and my character at the end of the show…I won’t give it away here, you’ll just have to come see the show to find out.
