You apply and you wait and wait. So when we applied we were hopeful, but regional theaters do not produce this show very often, because it is so hard to cast. It’s never been produced in the state, by a professional company. It’s always been on my shortlist to produce and the stars all aligned.
How did you find your cast? ‘Miss Saigon’
of it and have some simple, real, intimate scenes.
Are there any gay cast/crew members?
Two of the actors are gay and one of the ensemble members. Of course, I am gay, as is choreographer Bubba Carr and the musical director Chris Brent Davis.

We are having our first rehearsal today. We’ll be landing it every night. I think it will be a very cool moment. It’s important to note - the show would be incredible without the helicopter. The helicopter is a cherry, but it’s not a play about a helicopter.
What can LGBT audiences get from the show?
