WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - "A Chorus Line" is at the Kravis Center, so we rollout our red carpet for opening night to talk with the stars and guest of show.
"I play Larry," said Michael Scirotto. "Larry is essentially the dance captain in the show. He is the right-hand man of the character Zack who is running this audition, and he kind of helps keep the ball rolling. He keeps Zack on track; he keeps everyone on their toes."
"The show is about, essentially, actors, singers and dancers, which we all know as triple threats, and their stories. What it was like for them growing up and how it's made them who they are today."
Scirotto is no stranger to South Florida. "I am a local. I'm from Jupiter, Florida. I graduated from Dreyfoos School of the Arts."
Michael has many fond memories of attending Dreyfoos. "It was an escape. It was a place I could go to and feel safe, and I could be myself. I could own my craft and my skill."
So what's next for this Jupiter native? "It's the story of my life: Going to get back to New York when this tour's over, and I'm going to pound the pavement, come rain or shine or snow, and find another job. It's just the way it goes."
Which is what "A Chorus Line" is all about making it a favorite for those in the same field as Michael.
But you don't have to be in the business to enjoy the Tony Award winning musical. Just a love for the Arts.
Ilene Arons and her team at the Kravis Center pride themselves on making every night at the Kravis a special night. "For us, we like to think we are very geared towards customer service and for our guests. From the minute they arrive in our garage or valet park, we want them to have a great experience, and so every step of the way. It's not just come see the show, but from our guest services representative to our box office representatives, we want them to feel as if this is their home. And this is truly for the community. As part of our tag line, we say, 'Yours Truly', and we sincerely mean it."
Kravis truly provides a great Broadway season year after year for our area. "We have 'Jersey Boys' coming up in March, and we are just so excited with that. It's almost sold out. There are still some seats left. That is our three-week run, and after that we have 'Burn the Floor' in May, and that is just an international dance sensation and will be a terrific show, and we also just recently announced 'Cats'. And 'Cats' is coming for one week in June."
You can buy tickets for these shows, which are selling like hot cakes, on their Web site, Kravis.org.
