There's a new Drew in the Bourbon Room...Joey Taranto!
And of course, your friends here at TCOTS took some time to get the dish on this "wonderstudy"...enjoy!
Full Name: Joseph Sidney Taranto
Role(s) in “Rock of Ages”: Drew
Song you most looking forward to performing in the show: Oooooh, I really enjoy the "More than Words/Heaven" medley. I think the arrangement is beautiful.
In “Rock of Ages,” Drew’s a barback, Lonny’s a sound engineer and Sherrie’s a waitress. If you weren’t about to be in a hit musical on Broadway, what would you be doing for a living? I honestly I have no idea. At this point, performing is my only option.
Favorite 80's movie / TV show: "The Never Ending Story" is not only my favorite 80's movie, but my favorite movie of ALL time. "ARTEX!! YOU'RE SINKING!!!" My favorite TV show of the 80's? Probably "Gimme a Break" cause Nell Carter was way a head of her time.
If you could go back in time to see any band in concert with a song in "Rock of Ages", who would it be? Definitely Journey. Steve Perry was an AMAZING front man and I still haven't gotten over the fact that he left the band. WHHHHHHHHHY???
