We asked Brian a few questions about himself.
Q: Who or what inspired you to start doing theater?
A: I have grown up in theatre my entire life so I would say my family and friends who pushed me into it in the first place.
Q: What was the musical that had you fall in love with musicals?
A: I mean, I have always loved musicals but I think the one that hit me the most when I first saw it was Next To Normal.
Q: What is the favorite role you've ever played?
A: Hands down the best role I have ever played has to be Snoopy from You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. I had a blast playing the sassy, snarky, and tap dancing pup with all of my friends.
Q: What is the dream role you still want to play?
A: There are so many roles that I would love to play; however, I think that Gabe from Next To Normal would have to be number one on that list.
Q: Most challenging part of bringing this story to life?
A: Honestly, this has not been difficult to bring to life, in my opinion. We have an amazing cast, crew, and production staff that are all great to work with and make it very easy to get into the mindset of this show.
Q: If someone was going to make your life into a movie, who would you want to play you?
A: Obviously Tom Holland because, let's be honest, who wouldn't want him to star in a movie about your own life!
Q: What do you do when you’re not doing theater?
A: Honestly, I am doing theatre non-stop, because if I am not performing, then I am working backstage at Drury Lane Theatre.
Q: If you were stranded on an island, which character from Mamma Mia would you want to have with you and why?
A: Well, Bill has always talked about the fact that he is always traveling for his writing, so maybe he has picked up some tips and tricks of surviving as well.
Q: Why should people come see this production of Mamma Mia?
A: We have an extremely talented cast that just brings this show to life onstage and an amazing production staff whose vision is amazing and different from your ordinary Mamma Mia!
