A Conversation with Broadway Vet Tony Roberts
by Joel Markowitz
Recorded by Gene Dickerson
Jan 2 — Actor Tony Roberts, a man of incredible energy who is well-loved by Broadway actors and audiences alike, took time out to visit with us between shows of the musical Xanadu, now playing at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Relaxing in his dressing room, Tony tells us about playing Danny and Zeus in the show, and strolls down memory lane, schmoozing about his long and successful career – from Play It Again Sam, to How Now Dow Jones to hoofing and singing à la Gene Kelly in Xanadu.
One of the funniest interviews I have ever had the pleasure of recording. Enjoy it here.
