What sort of person is going to love this character?
Everyone will love this lady, but anyone who’s had to be a “right-hand” will especially appreciate Hubert.

How is this character like you? Different?
Well we both don’t dance well at all and we both have our opinions about the right way to do things.  I’m a bit more of a perfectionist than Hubert.

What do you love about this character?
Above all else, she genuinely cares for her sisters.

What’s the biggest challenge about taking on this role?
Without question, the tap dancing!  My wife and daughter are definitely the dancers in my family.

Besides yourself, what celebrity would you like to see tackle this character?
I think Wayne Brady would be hilarious if it were a male cast.

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?
It’d have to be, “When I was a little girl,”

If you could play any other character in this show, who would it be?
Probably Reverend Mother.

What makes a good scene partner?
Someone who gives you something to play off of.  I love it when you get so into a scene with one another.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I always wanted to be an actor or be in a rock band.  I love writing as well and hope to one day write a novel.

If someone was going to make your life into a movie, who would play you?
My wife votes for Brad Pitt!

When did you first perform?
I sang in church growing up, but really found my love of performing in high school and college.  As an adult, my kids brought me back to the stage.

Besides this one, what’s your favorite stage show?
I was fortunate enough to realize a lifelong dream of playing “Jesus” in Jesus Christ Superstar last year.  Can’t think of much that will top that.

Who do you look up to (as an actor/director/etc.)?
Sir Anthony Hopkins and Orson Wells.

What’s your perfect Sunday afternoon look like?
It rarely happens, but I’d love to have a Sunday afternoon to just sit and read a good book.

When you have a five-minute break during rehearsal, what do you spend that time doing?
Checking my phone for the latest Dodger or UCLA sports news.

Who’s the funniest person in the cast in real life?
Roger Sloan.  He must be goosed at all times.

What do you do when you’re not doing theatre?
Real estate keeps me busy.  I coach my daughter’s soccer team and lead our small group Bible study.

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?
Don’t think it’ll ever happen, but I love the music from Hair.

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage / the curtain goes up?
Whenever I’m nervous I pray.
