Jason Danieley - Broadway singing actor and recent blogger from the inside of show business, AMA!
I'm Jason Danieley. You might know me from my performances on PBS in "South Pacific," "Carousel," and Kander & Ebb's "Ring Them Bells." I'm also a symphony guest artist performing around the world with some of the best symphony orchestras across the globe. I've been fortunate enough to be a Broadway star that's appeared in "The Full Monty," "Next to Normal" (with my wife Marin Mazzie), and now I'm starring alongside Chita Rivera and Rodger Rees in the highly anticipated last musical written by Kander & Ebb, "The Visit." You can see "The Visit" now on Broadway, more information here.
I also recently began a very popular blog, called The Danieley Digest (http://www.jasondanieley.com/blog/), which is theater from a theater actor's perspective - an insider's view of musical theater on Broadway.
I'm based in New York and when I'm not onstage, I'm an advocate for the Alzheimer's Association, and I've run with the Athletes to End Alzheimer's team this past November. My wife and I live in the Berkshires, and frequently perform with the Boston Pops - so we are going to be performing with them this June, and also with Tanglewood.
I'm looking forward to your questions, Victoria's helping me get started. AMA.
Update: Thank you all for the great questions. I have to run to the theater, and beat my face for the matinee. If you have any more questions, leave them here, and I'll get to them later today.
