Tonight on the Livestream: The Tony Nominated Will Swenson (Hair, Les Miz and more)

“What about Will Swenson?”

These are the words I’ve heard spoken at just about every single casting meeting I’ve been to, when you’re looking for a leading man that can do . . . well . . . anything.  He can play the good guy (Hair).  He can play the bad guy (Les Miz).  He can make you laugh (Disaster).

He’s also just a terrific guy that you want in your rehearsal room.

The next thing that’s said at these casting meetings by the Casing Director is, “He’s not available.”  Cuz the guy is always working, whether that’s on stage or on film or on the small screen.

So, when we were coming up with great guest ideas for you for my livestream, I said, “What about Will Swenson?”

And guess what?  He was available!  🙂

You can join me and Will TONIGHT, Tuesday, September 22nd at 8 PM ET LIVE on my Facebook, on my Twitter, or on Broadway Podcast Network’s Youtube Channel and find out what he’s been up to this pandemic, the two readings we recently did together, and MORE.

Set a reminder here!
