brown Lần cập nhật cuối: 07/09/2012

Full given name: Daniel Michael Ippolito Spagnuolo (Yes, I’m Italian)

Where you were born/where you were raised: Lansing, MI

Your position within the Godspell production team? Choreographer

What does that mean/what do you do? I try to have the musical numbers tell a story while hiding when we move furniture.

What’s surprised you most about Godspell‘s rehearsal process so far? Our cast. The energy they bring to this work inspires me to create for them everyday. They rock!!!

Something you’re REALLY bad at: Not talking with my hands. Avoiding carbohydrates.

Current local show you have been recommending to friends:  It was The Great American Trailer Park Musical but it’s already closed. It was hilarious. In addition to our show, I’m really excited to go see Bailiwick’s Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Chicago Shakespeare’s Sunday in the Park with George, and 42nd Street at Theatre at the Center.

Favorite Chicago neighborhood: East Lakeview

Favorite musical: 1. West Side Story 2. Assassins 3. The Secret Garden

Favorite play: “Master Harold” … and the boys by Athol Fugard

You personal idols: As a choreographer, George Balanchine. As a singer, Pavarotti. As an actor, Meryl Streep.

MAC or PC? PC.

Most played song on your iPod: You kids and your iPods.

Must-see TV show(s): Community, Happy Endings, 30 Rock

Performer you would drop everything to go see: Audra McDonald

Pop culture guilty pleasure: Facebook and I have a really unhealthy relationship.

Three favorite cities: Chicago, Washington, D.C., Boston

“I’ll never understand why…” People wait until the last minute to find an apartment in Chicago in the summer. Trust me, this is a bad idea!
