Broadway favorite and It Could Be Worse co-star Adam Chanler-Berat stars in the moving, romantic and can’t-miss new musical Fly By Night at Playwrights Horizons. The Next to Normal and Peter and the Starcatcher vet plays Harold McClam, a young guy living in NYC in 1964 who plays guitar.
And works at a sandwich shop.
And steals the hearts of two very different sisters (and the entire audience). Below, Chanler-Berat talks to BroadwayBox about his favorite aspects of 1960s culture, boombox romance and why he stays away from psychics .
1. My go-to sandwich:
Turkey, cheddar, spinach, mayo, mustard. (A Turkey Reuben if I'm feeling fancy.)
2. My all-time ‘60s crush:
3. The album from ‘60s I couldn’t live without:
Predictable, but Beatles Sgt. Pepper's. (If we're taking singles, “Sound of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel).
4. The ‘60s scene/fad I would have been all about:
Space Race!!! Mars 2015???
5. My nerdy passion is:
Northern Brooklyn history.
6. Most romantic thing I’ve done for someone I’m crushing on:
What's more romantic than a mix tape?
7. Do I believe in psychics?
I don't do psychics. I'm very suggestible.
Take a chance on love and an original musical and check out 'Fly By Night' at Playwrights Horizons.
