It only took me 942 shows to start writing about my “glamorous” life on Broadway (among other things).
I don’t have Facebook anymore and I barely use my other social media platforms, so I guess this will have to suffice for the 5-6 people that will actually read these posts.
About two months ago, I lost my voice while performing as Piangi in ‘The Phantom of the Opera’. I apparently had a sinus infection, which lead to the worst case of laryngitis I’ve ever experienced, which subsequently resulted in me getting a yeast infection because my body did not like all of the antibiotics and steroids I was feeding it.
Being out of work for nearly a month was not fun. It was kind of depressing actually. The one thing that defines my identity and provides me with my livelihood was suddenly gone, and I had no clue if I’d ever perform on stage again. Lucky for me, Phantom took care of me and my voice is pretty much back to normal.
Oh farts, there’s the 5 minute call. Gotta bounce!
