WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE…

BOOK: Just finished reading Patty LuPone’s Autobiography Patty LuPone: A Memoir and loved it!
BAND: Don’t have a favorite band, but favorite singer is Mariah Carey.
SONG: “If It’s Over” by Mariah Carey

FOOD: Breaded Steak and potatoes and/or Pizza
PLAY: Just read “Unmarried in America” by Kristin Carlson. Pretty powerful. (It’s based on the CA Prop 8 Trial of 2010)
BEVERAGE: Any herbal tea before bed or a Coke in the morning
SCENT: Mom’s house. She’s always cooking something up so it always smells amazing.
THIS OR THAT…
DOGS OR CATS? Dogs
HEELS OR FLATS? Flats?
BOXERS OR BRIEFS? Boxer Briefs
COKE OR PEPSI? Coke
MAC OR PC? PC, although I’ve never had a Mac
SPRING OR FALL? Spring
SUNRISE OR SUNSET? Sunset
BEACH OR POOL? Beach
THE BEST INVENTION IN HISTORY IS? The Printing Press.
WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU LEMONS? See if you can switch up for a good Grapefruit or Pomegranate. They’re a lot more fun.
YOU’RE STRANDED ON A DESERTED ISLAND… WHAT TWO ITEMS DO YOU BRING? A good book and a warm coat (I’m sure whatever else you need you can find there)
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ACTING? Started in Kindergarten with “The Three Little Pigs” (I played the Wolf).
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ROLE YOU’VE PLAYED? Molina in “Kiss of the Spider Woman”
WHAT’S YOUR DREAM ROLE TO BE CAST? There are so many… but maybe Marius in “Les Miserables” or Linus in “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.”
WHO IS YOUR HERO? BIGGEST INSPIRATION? Definitely my parents. They’ve showed us the value of hard work at an early age and how important it is to have strong faith when everything seems helpless.
WHERE ARE YOU IN 10 YEARS? Who knows. Life has taken me to some pretty cool places, but I’d love to be back in California or overseas somewhere performing in shows.
CAN WE FOLLOW YOU? FB? TWITTER? Twitter is fine. @gmorale83181014 (sorry didn’t know you could come up with with a cool name for it when I opened the account). LOL
WHY SEE ANYTHING GOES? It’s definitely a show for all the romantics at heart. The notion of a handsome man pursuing a gorgeous girl the “old school way” definitely reminds us how much of that chivalry we have lost over the years due to technology advancing so fast. I mean when a person gets asked out these days it’s via text. Not even a phone call is made anymore. I think its super romantic that Billy goes through all that trouble to get the girl he loves. Plus it’s Cole Porter’s music! Enough said. =)
