September 24, 2010

Name: Jason Collins

Hometown: Seattle, WA

Role: Narrator/Ed

Describe your character in 3 words: The Audience’s Guide

First musical you ever saw: How To Succeed In Business…

Favorite Italian food: Italian Sausage

Favorite song in the show: Quando Scungili

Favorite place in New Jersey: um… I’ve been to the Liberty Science Center… It’s pretty cool.

Favorite rehearsal moment so far: Obnoxious character laughing with Jonathan Gregg

Name: Samia Mounts

Hometown: Seoul, Korea

Role: Loretta

Describe your character in 3 words: Ummm…eager to please? (Put as much innuendo on that as you can, and you’ll have a good idea of the character.)

First musical you ever saw: Probably Annie, but the first Broadway musical I ever saw was Beauty & the Beast, and I STILL want to be Belle!

Favorite Italian food: Anything with prosciutto. Also lasagna. What’s not to love about lasagna?

Favorite song in the show: One of a Kind

Favorite place in New Jersey: Cape May!!!

Favorite rehearsal moment so far: When we figured out how Vinnie could drag three girls across the stage with one leg. It’s a highlight of the show.

Name: Alex Krasser

Hometown: Columbia, CT

Role: (Male) Ensemble 

Describe your character in 3 words: Uncool, but trying.

First musical you ever saw: That I actually remember seeing? Fiddler on the Roof, when I was seven. I remember it more vividly than most other things from when I was seven.

Favorite Italian food: I have to choose? Oofah. April-September: Caprese salad. October-March: Anything that weighs more than a pound and involves sausage, tomatoes, and at least three types of cheese.

Favorite song in the show: “Little Girl, Beware,” just for the womens’ desperate pleas to be abused and objectified (“Rocco, please destroy my will to live!”).

Favorite place in New Jersey: Hackensack. Never been there, but I love the name.

Favorite rehearsal moment so far: Every time David (Vinnie) precisely echoes Jeremy (Rocco)’s manly, sexy grunts.
