“I’m nervous and excited to be making my Broadway debut in such a pie-conic show. My character’s name is Old Joe, so I’ve got half of it down already. And there’s pie every night!”

“He is a longtime favorite of ours and now we get to welcome him into a whole new world at the Brooks Atkinson where it hardly ever rains.”
