In this episode of Off Off Pod I interview Jeremiah James who kindly invited me to see him as El Gallo in The Fantasticks which is playing Off Broadway on 50th Street in the Jerry Orbach Theater (Snapple Theater Center).
I met Jeremiah through my writer friend, Karen Moline. I asked her if there was anybody she knew who I had to talk to while in NYC, and she hooked me up with Jeremiah who could not have been nicer.
He was really great in the role of El Gallo — great voice, a lot of humor, very graceful and dynamic on stage. In fact, go right now and listen to him sing! (And then come back here and listen to the interview.) www.JeremiahJames.net.
Jeremiah has done a lot of cool things so far in his career, including being a part of a very popular international touring group called Teatro, playing Billy Bigelow in a major West End revival of Carousel, originating the role of Willoughby in the new Sense and Sensibility musical at the Denver Theatre Center, and charitably helping sick kids in Zimbabwe.
