Meet Jayson Elliott playing Nicely Nicely
I grew up in a small town in Indiana. "Anytown USA" small high school, a movie theatre with 2 screens, basketball hoops in every driveway, and lemonade stands. I really fell in love with acting in High school. Our theatre director was really good about exposing us to as many forms of live performance as possible. I've know of the show for years, as long as I can remember. I think it was special to me (and I know this sounds simple) because it's about GUYS. Dudes. This is my first crack at Nicely Nicley.
In my opninion Westchester Broadway Theatre's production values, direction, stage management and crew as a whole is always top notch. I was in the Full Monty and Christmas Voyager. I love the film Guys and Dolls! Sinatra and Brando are iconic! I think movie musals are allowing more people to be exposed to musical theatre and hopefully, it will encourage them to see it live. I really enjoy doing Dave in the Full Monty, The Big Bopper in The Buddy Holly Story, Barfee in Spelling Bee, and I am very excited to add Nicely Nicely to that list.
When I'm not on stage I really enjoy listening to and playing music, playing golf...all sports really, and spending time with friends. Some of the most played music on my IPod is The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, Jerry Garcia, Mumford and Sons... I could keep going... Haha.
