Tony-winning director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw joins us live for The Broadway Q&A Series, taking your questions on making musical theatre funny, what works in the audition room, becoming a director-choreographer, and more.
Nicholaw's nearly three-decades long career on Broadway includes performing in Crazy For You, Victor/Victoria, Seussical, and Thoroughly Modern Millie, making his debut as a choreographer with Spamalot in 2005. He went on to direct and choreograph such shows as The Drowsy Chaperone, Elf, The Book of Mormon, Aladdin, Something Rotten!, Tuck Everlasting, Mean Girls, and The Prom, winning a 2011 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical with his Book of Mormon co-director, Trey Parker.
Presented by Playbill and The Growing Studio, The Broadway Q&A Series streams live, hour-long interviews with Broadway professionals on Mondays and Wednesdays, with a session featuring faculty members from two major university theatre programs each Friday. All streams are hosted on Playbill.com and on Playbill's YouTube channel from 1–2 PM ET. Following the stream, interviews are available on demand at Playbill.com/BroadwayQandA.
