Get to know Marc!


TCTP: Jonathan Larson also wrote RENT. What’s your go to RENT song to belt when you’re alone?


MJ: Out Tonight or Angels portion of Contact both of them were heavy rotation when I was in High School


TCTP: The main conflict of the show is dealing with not accomplishing what you thought you would. Have you ever struggled with that?


MJ: Yes I have when I was in Houston working as an actor the last year I was there I wasn't getting the work or roles I was getting when I was younger. It was a very difficult process to go from playing children and teens to playing adults


TCTP: What’s your favorite lyric in the show?


MJ: Why does it take catastrophe to start a revolution - I feel this speaks to us now actually all of Louder than Words hits home with the current state of the world.


TCTP: Susan doesn’t love being a dance teacher and John doesn’t love working at a diner, while Michael eventually gave up the arts for corporate America. What’s your relationship with your survival job?


MJ: Well I worked for Lush and Chicago Dance Supply before quitting and working full time as an Artist and I can say it was not all that great working for either as I couldn’t really do what I wanted scheduling wise.


TCTP: Jon is ashamed of his Twinkie obsession. What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?


MJ: I would say my taste in music sometimes I have a very eclectic taste and sometimes I get made fun of it. I will let you imagine whats on my playlist.


Come see Marc's work in TICK, TICK...BOOM!, running November 17 - December 16 at Prop Thtr.
