Interview with broadwayworld.com
I had the pleasure of speaking to Nicole Ciravolo on behalf of Broadway World, and was featured on their website! I share my history with musical theatre, some things I've learned in my journey, and talk about why I chose University of Michigan (Go Blue!)! You can find the link to the story here.
newsies - shenandoah summer music theatre
I had the privilege of working alongside an amazingly talented cast and crew in the production of Newsies at the Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre. I loved the opportunity I got to dive into the character of Jack Kelly. Below is an excerpt from a review of the show. The full review can be found here.
"With emotions as deep as the Hudson and as murky at times too, Josh Strobl’s Jack Kelly is a sheer delight to behold. There is a deep versatility present in the way Strobl presents Jack Kelly, giving him depth beneath his grit and heart beneath his edge. “Santa Fe” and its reprise are powerful, emotional, gut-wrenching pieces of music that Strobl fills with honest sentiment and deep connectivity. Watching the way Strobl grows as he navigates the tricky character arc of Jack Kelly is quite impressive as well, especially when the Jack Kelly character is faced with that ultimate turning-point moment in the show just inside “Watch What Happens (Reprise).”"
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot - University of michigan musical theatre studio production
I performed in the remarkable play The Last Days of Judas Iscariot in two roles - "Bailiff" and "Simon the Zealot." This was a Studio Production by the University of Michigan Musical Theatre Department.
BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON - MUSKET at the university of michigan
I performed with MUSKET at the University of Michigan in the musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson in the role of "Black Fox." This modern twist on the Presidency of Andrew Jackson turned heads and sheds a new light on a past era.
Sister Act - MUSKET at the University of Michigan
I was delighted to join the cast of Sister Act as "Pablo" in the MUSKET production of the musical at the University of Michigan. This musical is full of laughs, and as "Pablo" I was able to deliver an unforgettably hilarious performance.
Jerry Herman Awards - Pantages Theatre
I was honored to be a nominated and win the Jerry Herman Award for my portrayal of "Link Larkin" from Hairspray. It was a dream performing at the Pantages and working with industry veterans like Kenny Ortega!
