Playbill.com's series features actors commenting on their recent theatregoing experiences, what productions they're looking forward to and more. Here, via email, we hear from singing actor Robb Sapp, who will be seen in the New York Musical Theatre Festival production of Marry Harry, which runs July 19-28 at the Signature Alice Brickman Theatre.
What show recently impressed you?
I recently saw The Orpheus Variations, created by The Deconstructive Theatre Project. The approach was so fascinating and beautifully inventive. The story is told through conventional filmmaking techniques as a theatrical experience on the stage, while creating a finished cinematic presentation that is being projected in real time on a movie screen above the stage. It was totally captivating.
What production are you most excited to see?
What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
It’s a toss up between Leo Frank in Parade and Mickey in Blood Brothers. I think the alternating casting idea that was used in the 2000 revival of True West would be a fun approach to casting the twins...anyone?...anyone?...
What are your current/upcoming projects?
I lead a double life, so I am ridiculously fortunate to be working with two extraordinary groups of people right now. I am playing “Little Harry” in Marry Harry at the NYMF. I am also the co-founder and creative director of dirty sugar, a creative studio I formed in 2005 with some of my best friends.
