Cheyenne Jackson left Seattle in 2002 to pursue a career on Broadway.
His jet lag hadn’t even worn off when he was offered his first job.
How do I know? Because I was the one who offered it to him.
I was the Company Manager of Thoroughly Modern Millie, and seconds after his audition, the director, Michael Mayer, called me and said, “Ken! Make sure you get to his agent today! This guy is a star!”
We got him for Millie. And yeah, it was clear he was a super-talent. And was destined for success.
But it was more than talent that got him cast in Xanadu, All Shook Up, Flight 93, American Horror Story, 30 Rock . . . and sold out Carnegie Hall 2x, etc., etc.
What is it?
I’ll tell you on my livestream when I interview him tonight! (And it has to do with how we were lucky enough to have him in the original NYMF cast of Altar Boyz.)
Join me and Cheyenne tonight at 8 PM EDT! Set a reminder here!
