Interview: Broadway veteran Jerome Vivona on the new musical 'The Nutty Professor'
In this episode of The Randy Report, I'm talking with veteran Broadway performer Jerome Vivona.
Jerome - whose Broadway credits include Curtains the Musical, Seussical the Musical, Kiss Me Kate, Dream, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Guys and Dolls, and Jerome Robbins Broadway - recently returned to the stage after a hiatus of some years as part of the cast of 'The Nutty Professor,' a new musical currently playing at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine.
TV credits include The Today Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, The Tony Awards and The Kennedy Center Honors. His film appearances include The Stepford Wives and Everyone Says I Love You.
He’s also choreographed commercials for the Disney Channel, ABC Family and Nickelodeon TV, as well as Broadway.com commercials for the Tony Awards broadcasts.
With his wife Michelle, another veteran Broadway actress and dancer, they are Co-Owners/Artistic Directors of the American Theater Dance Workshop - voted Best Arts School on Long Island in 2019. Together they train Long Island's up-and-coming theatrical talents, giving back and passing on what they’ve learned throughout their long careers.
Jerome has also taught dance and music theater master classes at Indiana University School of Music, Carnegie Mellon University and Syracuse University.
Jerome shares not only about his new show, but his journey & perspective as an artist on Broadway and beyond, and how he came to what he calls the "third act" of his theatrical career.
He also talks about balancing family life and his career on the stage, and the gratitude he feels along the way.
