William fills out Playbill.com's questionnaire with random facts, backstage trivia, & pop culture tidbits.

Worst costume ever: Seussical's Wickersham Brother monkey costume was equally the best & worst. Performing in a non-air conditioned theatre...in central Illinois...in July...in faux fur, pleather pants, & a foot-and-a-half high wig was a big sweaty mess. But it was hand-made just for me, so it was a one-of-a-kind sweaty mess.
