Every third Wednesday of the month, a fabulous actor/singer/dancer fills out editor Matthew Wexler’s nosey little questionnaire and offers a glimpse of what he looks like from a bit closer than the mezzanine. This month we go political with Andrew Chappelle, who appears in the new musical Hamilton (by In The Heights creator Lin-Manuel Miranda), a rousing take on one of our founding fathers.
Los Angeles, CA
Besides Hamilton’s, what is your favorite political sex scandal?
I suppose the Bill Clinton Monica Lewinsky fiasco. The Anthony Weiner mess was also funny given his name.
If I weren’t a performer, I would be:
Somewhere driving people in an office crazy.
Places, Intermission or Curtain Call:
Places! There is always excitement in the air before our show begins. The audience doesn’t know what’s they are about to see. The cast comes together and has a moment to focus and then its showtime!
The best post show cocktail in New York City is at:
The Library at The Public Theater, of course! I love a dirty martini.
After you’ve hit all the traditional sites of New York City, you should totally go to:
Blind Barber in the Lower East Side or you could go see an improv show at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Chelsea.
Take the jump for more with Andrew, including a sneak peek at his sketch comedy show, Sketch Betch.
