THEATER BUFF: Charlie Sutton from “Catch Me If You Can”
Every third Wednesday (hump day of the hump week), a fabulous actor/singer/dancer currently on Broadway will fill out my nosey little questionnaire and offer a glimpse of what they look like from a bit closer than the mezzanine. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet…
Name: Charlie Sutton
Hometown: Miami, Fl
Current Show/Role: Catch Me If You Can/Ensemble
The best part of the show I’m in now is: Warming up with the boys, on the stage, before the show. There’s always so much to talk about.
The most challenging job in show business I ever had was: In high school, working as a dancer on the spanish television show Sabado Gigante. I don’t speak Spanish….lets just say a lot was lost in translation.
If I wasn’t an actor, I would be: A fashion designer/stylist. I love fashion and nothing’s sexier than a well-dressed woman.
Pick a Harry: Potter, Prince (of Wales) or Debbie? I’m not into gingers, so Prince Harry is out. Debbie Harry…. I’ll Pass. But it’s a big thumbs up for Mr. Potter. I like a do-gooder with glasses. Who doesn’t? And he can really dance!
The best post-show cocktail in town is at: SNOB (aka Saturday Night On Broadway). It’s not a bar…so stop looking it up on your iPhone. It’s when you and your fellow co-workers get drunk on a Saturday night after the show. Good times had by all!
After you’ve hit all the traditional sites of New York City, you should totally go to: Catch Me If You Can. It’s a show for the whole family! (Wink! Wink!)
If I could live anywhere else in the world it would be: My hometown of Miami. All I need is a pool, sunshine and a sensible cocktail. The hot tan guys don’t hurt either.
Board shorts, speedo or skinny dip? I like a small board short. Its perfect for running on the beach with my dog Parker.
My workout “secret” is: P90x. The guy is a *#%^(@^?<+ and sometimes you wanna punch him in the face. But, he gives you a killer body. Oh….. and I don’t eat…..in public.
When I’m looking for a date, nothing attracts me more than: A nice guy. I’m glad I found mine.
When I’m web surfing, the site I’m most likely to be on is: Streeteasy.com. I love looking at real estate.
If I was stranded, I’d have the best chance of surviving in the jungle, at sea or in the mountains? Although I love the sea, I’d say no because I don’t eat seafood. The mountains…..too many ticks. I guess I’d go with the jungle. I did do Wicked, so I have experience being a monkey.
People would be surprised to learn that I: Sew. But don’t ask me to sew a button or a hem. I’m not your Grandmother.
When I was 10, I wanted to be just like: My Mom: A great dancer twirling around on stage with heels on. Both those things came true!
Ten years from now, I’d like to be: On a Sitcom.
Cape, mask or spandex tights? Cape for sure. Its always good for a dramatic exit.
