How did your invitation to perform with the Seattle Men’s Chorus come about?
I’m not sure – but it may have something to do with my connection to Wicked and the fact that I’m a native Northwest girl. It didn’t hurt that I worked with SMC two years ago and we had a great time!
What interesting projects do you have in the works?
Right now I’m working on a film with Warren Beatty, VoiceOver jobs and TONS of concerts.
What is your favorite role and/or project so far?
There’s no way to pick a favorite. They’ve all meant something different and are special to me in very unique ways.
How was it to follow in the footsteps of Dolly Parton and play Doralee Rhodes in 9 to 5 on Broadway?
At first, terrifying. But the minute I met her, she totally put me at ease. She is one if the most loving people I’ve ever met and it was an honor to have worked with her in that capacity.
Do you have a dream role in a current or historic production? (TV or Stage)
I’ve always wanted to play Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd.
Do you have a message that you would like to express to LGBT youth?
Being a teenager is hard for everyone, but it’s particularly difficult for LGBT youth. To them I would say, stay strong in who you are and know that there is a whole world of us out here who love and support you.
Totally Wicked with the Seattle Men’s Chorus and Megan Hilty is only running two days, March 29th and 30th! Get your tickets now! Don’t miss this amazing opportunity! Click here.
