Meet The Good Padre ...Alan M-L Wager
I'm from Orange County California, third generation Los Angeles native. My Mother's family from Culver City, right outside the gate of MGM.
I Have always been a fan of music and started singing at 15, this led to choirs in High School and civic theatre.
This is my fourth production of Man Of La Mancha as the Padre. I DO know the movie but don't think highly of it, as it was cast with non-singers in singing roles. Musicals into films is great...as long as it's done well.
Favorite shows include Show Boat and Sweeney Todd, both of which I've done multiple times. Wish someone would do Me & My Girl again...would love to repeat that one as well.
I am the co-founder of 22Q Entertainment, an Emmy nominated and award winning production company. Our most recent production was a new play called Would You Still Love Me If...? starring Kathleen Turner at New World Stages.
Currently, on my Iphone/Pod is a bunch of musical recordings...some of which I'm on (including the new Disney Hunchback recording) and text messages from people I don't quite remember!
