Favorite R&H musical: SOUTH PACIFIC

Favorite customer phone call: Is STARLIGHT EXPRESS available? (Editor's Note: STARLIGHT EXPRESS is NOT available.)

Favorite caffeinated beverage: Green Tea (I just don't really drink soda or coffee)

Most played song on your iPod: "Big Sur" by the Thrills

If you could be any character from an R&H show, who would you be and why? Emile de Beque. He has a villa "with many books," hosts excellent parties, and lives on a tropical island.

Favorite lunch food: General Tso's Chicken

Favorite role(s) you've played onstage: Launce in TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA. I got to have a pet dog named Crab.

Favorite travel destination: Boston or Philadelphia

Favorite thing about working at R&H: If you burst into song, people don't look at you funny. Well, they do, but probably fewer and less here than at other offices.

Favorite Broadway actor: Gregg Edelman

What you're currently reading/book to recommend: I recommend: Life of Pi by Yann Martel or A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving and am currently reading John Adams by David McCulloch and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain.

Do you have more blue or black pens at your desk? Blue.

Your computer desktop background: Right now it's the marquee at Studio 54, for PAL JOEY.

Three things all customers should know (about you or R&H): 1.) The date you will receive your materials is at the top of the fourth page of the license agreement. 2.) If you apply at least four months ahead of when you want to do your show, its much easier and cheaper. 3.) Were totally going to let everyone know when WHITE CHRISTMAS is available to amateurs.
