Full Name: Stephanie Rohr
Where you were born/where you were raised? Born in Grosse Pointe, MI. Raised in Naperville, IL.
Your role within the [title of show] family: Female swing
How would you describe your character? Being a swing means I get to learn both of the female roles [Susan & Heidi] and be ready to go on if either of the female cast members is unable to. It is a big challenge but it is super fun to work on both of these awesome roles.
If 5 words, how do you describe [title of show]? This show has everything ... dude.
Favorite obscure musical referenced in [title of show]: Merrily We Roll Along, though is that one really that obscure?
Favorite musical: Into the Woods is basically perfection.
Favorite show tune: This is almost impossible, but I'll say "Move On" from Sunday in the Park with George. Or "Not A Day Goes By" from Merrily We Roll Along. Or "You'll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel. Or "Old Man River" from Showboat.
First musical you remember seeing: Phantom of the Opera when I was 9. I saw the tour when it came to Chicago. I knew all of the words. To the entire show. What can I say? ...tiny Steph loved Andrew Lloyd Webber. I was ready to be the swing for that whole damn cast.
Go-to audition number: Lately, "A Quiet Thing" from Flora the Red Menace
Your personal idols: Bernadette Peters, Angela Lansbury, Amy Morton, Madeline Kahn
Who would play you in the Broadway musical of your life? Kelli O'Hara. Sopranos represent.
Who would write the score? Stephen Sondheim, obviously. With Rodgers & Hammerstein at a close 2nd.
Something you're REALLY bad at: Choosing my favorite showtune, apparently.
Current local show you have been recommending to friends: I haven't seen it yet, but Men on the Verge of a His-Panic Breakdown by Pride Films and Plays will probably be great.
Most played song on your iPod: Probably something Joni Mitchell. I'll go with "Court and Spark"
Three things you can't live without: Music, Friends & Family, Caffeine
"I'll never understand why…" tiny Steph loved dark Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals so much.
