If you could go back in time and see any Broadway show, which would it be? I guess I would have to say Gypsy with Patti Lupone, it wasn’t long ago but I just couldn’t get to the city to see it.
Current show you have been recommending to friends- In The Heights, it’s just a big, fun show.

The Plaids just finished a great 2 show day in Clinton Township, Michigan at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts. This is kind of a notorious house for tours to go through for a couple of reasons. One is that all the tours that come through decorate a ceiling panel that covers the backstage hallways. It’s really fun to walk through and see not only some great artwork hanging from the ceiling, but a lineage of Broadway actors who were getting the start in early tours. The other is “Mom”-she’s always waiting for the actors with food and hugs. She’s super sweet-I came through this house almost 10 years ago when I toured with South Pacific and it was really great deja vu!
The Forever Plaid National Tour Company!

Favorite Audition Song/Monologue-I had been singing the end of “Soliloquy” from Carousel…alot.
Special Skills-I can make two tones at once and whistle through my teeth (a la Herbert from Family Guy)
First Broadway Show you ever saw-Ragtime, original cast…wow
If you could go back in time and see any Broadway show, what would you see?-I’m thinking Pippin-I’d love to see Ben Vereen tear up the Leading Player
Current show you’ve been recommending to friends-Rock of Ages. It’s such a guilty pleasure for me.
Favorite Show Tune-For some reason, Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera is coming my mind. That’s one of those questions you figure out after much thought, then when someone asks you, you’re like, “Uhhhhh….”
Mac or PC-Mac. All the way.
Most played song on your iPod-End of the World by Matt Alber
Web obsession-I just uploaded the Dragon’s Lair app to my iPhone. I’m obsessed with it-it reminds me of playing the arcade game as a kid.

Must See TV Show-Mad Men, Modern Family, Gray’s Anatomy
Last good movie you saw-Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World-a geek’s dream movie!
Favorite way to pass time on the road-Watching Mad Men, Modern Family, doing the USA Today crossword/word games
The beauty of this post is that I have no idea what any of the Plaids are doing today, because we are all on a very needed day off! Myself, I’m sitting on my couch, watching my TV, in my apartment in New York City. Aaaaaahhh. Action starts back up Tuesday in Bradford, Pennsylvania, where we will be joined by our director, Mr. Bobby Randle (as pictured below).
Scott here, reporting from the bus, as we are on our way to the beautiful Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Massachusetts for tonight’s show! We are heading into the cold weather too, so everyone is bundled up today. It’s almost been a month out on the road, and I thought you should all get to know the Plaids a little better, so I thought I’d post a little something on each of the guys. Let me know what you want to know and I’ll put up a profile on each of the “Pladdies!”
I leave you with a shot of the lobby at the show last night in Frederick, Maryland. A constant reminder of our chosen path…
Hey all, Sorry I’ve not posted in the past few days. I went home to Tulsa, OK to see my cousin get married. We play the barns at the Wolf Trap theatre tonight, which is a great regional house. I look forward to the show and to being that close to DC! More to come later!
When you are on tour and you have a day on the schedule that doesn’t include a performance or travel, that’s called a Golden Day. That’s what we’ve been enjoying today in Mansfield, Ohio! Because of the infrequency of these days, they truly are gold. You can choose to be productive and make travel arrangements of your own to go somewhere fun, or you can choose to be highly unproductive. Either way, you win!
Here’s a pic of Kevin, as we chose the the second option and went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast at lunch! Who knows what Plaid Stamps really are, but we thought it was fun for the show!
Greetings from almost-Canada!
The boys played a great show tonight in Ogdensburg, New York! I had toured through this house almost 10 years ago with another show and was having deja vu all night! Tomorrow is the birthday of our Jinx, Byron DeMent. Please send your birthday wishes our way!
Another great show in Springfield, Ohio last night and we are en route to Rochester, New York, where we will stay before heading to Ogdensburg, New York, tomorrow. Long travel day ahead of us, but people are well-occupied on the bus, some watching movies in the front, some chilling (literally, kind of cold today) in their bunks, and some of us watching football in the back! Loving the options! Hoping to stop in Cleveland for lunch!
Here’s a shot from the house the other day.
This was us up on the sign at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, Indiana. Great show tonight and the crowd really enjoyed it! We’re off to Springfield, OH tomorrow, then all the way up to Ogdensburg, NY for a show on Monday night! I will have some features coming up on all of the cast, so stay tuned!
