Next Profile of the Month: Ben Moss

Our next Profile of the Month is our lovable Ernst-- Ben Kennedy Moss. As you know, Ben will be leaving us after the Chicago engagement to go to Harvard University (looks, talent AND brains!). For many of you, this is your last chance to have him answer your question. Leave it as a comment to this post below. Cut off date is Monday Aug 3rd.


Michaela said...

Ben, what is your favorite thing about playing Ernst?
If you could be a different role in SA, which would it be?

Thanks! =)

Cristina said...

Why does it take you so long to do your hair before a show?

You're awesome by the way. :]

What has been your favourite moment in Spring Awakening so far?

- Caitlin from Toronto

Bradley said...

Ben you're amazing :)
Has anything ever gone weird with the word of your body reprise scene?
& What has been the weirdest reaction you've observed from the audience during that part?

Michelle said...

As a man of many talents, what do you want to focus most on in your future? (Acting, composing, etc.)

Anonymous said...

Ben you're fantastic!!

What is your best memory or experience from the tour/show that you will take with you will never forget? And, if you could play any other role in the show who would it be and why?

~ Brittany from Chicago

Hey, Ben!
What are you going to be studying at Harvard? And what will you miss most about being on tour?
You'll be missed!
-Nate from Philly

Lina said...

Hi Ben,
What did Spring Awakening changed in your life, except not being home?

You're gonna be missed by everyone, but all the best for the future!

Meg said...


First off, I completely adore you, and you are my favorite Ernst EVER!

Second, if you could be any animal in the world, real or imaginary, what would you be, and why?

We'll miss you! :-)

Victoria said...

Hey Ben!
You are extremely talented and amazing, and I know I, along with my fellow guilty ones, will miss you terribly when you leave.

If you had to be stuck in an elevator with 3 people (famous or not), who would you choose and why would you pick them?

-Victoria, from Ohio

Ember said...

How old were you when you composed "Fantasia on a Theme for Piano and Orchestra?" Which also leads to the question...how long have you been playing the piano? and do you play any other intruments?

You're brilliant!
Have fun at Harvard :)

BenMossFan said...

Hey Ben!
I was wondering what other productions you've been in in your high school career and such? and do you plan on following through with acting or just music in college?
Love Kathleen from Massachusetts

Antonio said...

Hi Ben, just a quick question, I know that getting accepted into Harvard is really hard. What do you think set you apart from all of the other applicants to Harvard, which led to your acceptance? Also, do you have any advice for people like me who are applying to Harvard and other colleges? Thanks!
PS you will be missed.

Angela said...

Ben! Can I just say that you are one of my favorite people in the cast and that I am going to miss you in the leg of the tour?

What was it about SA that made you want to audition for it? Did you try out for Ernst originally? What was your audition/call back process like? How did you react when you found out you were going to be in SA?\

Thanks Ben! You're awesome, good luck at Harvard!
Love, Angela!

Anonymous said...

Hi Ben,

You are wonderful as Ernst, and I can not wait to see you perform in Chicago.

How are you feeling about the transition from SA to Harvard? What will you miss most, and what are you most excited about? Do you have a favorite piano piece or composer?

Thanks, enjoy the conclusion of the tour and start at Harvard.

Anonymous said...

Do you feel like the cast is very cliquey or do you all get along really well all together?

Alyce said...

If you could describe yourself as a color, what color do you think you would be? Also, what is your favorite song right now?

Enjoy Harvard!

Lee said...

If you were president, what laws would you enact/repeal?

How do you think French Woods prepared you for the challenging musical theater industry? :)

Anonymous said...

Hey Ben! So sad you're leaving the tour! I will miss you playing Ernst!

I believe that life is made up of special moments. Moments that change one's life forever. It could be getting a part, meeting that "special someone", or even something as silly as going to the store for a Coke, but it's a moment in your life that changes you forever.

Do you have any speical moments in your life? What is a moment in your life that changed you as a person forever?

Lily from Brookline said...

1) Do you plan to give tours at Harvard?
2) Who has been your favorite Ernst (besides yourself, of course) and why?
3) There should be a Mad Minute with Ben. I'm appalled that there hasn't already been one.
4) Is it true that you were in a Goooze commercial?
5) Who is your favorite male character and why? Female?

That's all I can think of at the moment, so good luck at Harvard this fall, and I'll look for you on the T. Not creepily or anything, though; I'll just keep my eye out for you when I take the Red Line.

Lily from Brookline said...

P.S. You are beautiful and should have played teenage Tom Riddle in the most recent Harry Potter movie.

Anonymous said...

If you were stuck on a deserted island with the whole cast and you had to devour someone to stay alive, who would you eat first?

Jaimie said...

You are in a burrito of happiness. Who is in there with you? (people in your life.)

Favorite childhood TV show?

PS. I think you're pretty tight.

Anonymous said...

Dear Ben,
What would your ideal care package include?
And, inspired by Blake Bashoff's Profile of the Month, what happened in your most recent dream/a recent dream that was notable in some way?

Anonymous said...

We all love Ben so much, that I think I speak for us all when I say that there should be many more than just ten questions for his Profile of the Month. If not many, then there should still be more than ten.

Anonymous said...

If you were somehow elected to rule the entire world, who would you choose to help rule it with you? It can be more than one person, because let's face it, it'd be difficult to choose just one.

Hope you kick ass at Harvard! While I highly doubt it's the party Transformers made it out to be, you could totally change that. Nerds can be crazy, let me tell you. Don't judge a geek by its cover.

Colleen said...

Does shaving so frequently take a toll on your lovely complextion? Are there any special products you like to use?

Have fun composing at Harvard!

Lara said...

Do you play any other instruments? How long have you been playing the piano?

If you could play any other character in SA, who would you be and why?

What do you think you will miss the most about the tour when you leave? What about the least?

Anonymous said...

As a soon to be Harvardian, how do you feel about the recent Henry Louis Gates, Jr. fiasco?

Anonymous said...

If you were the musical composer/producer/director for your life story on film, what would the movie be called? what genre would it be? and what songs/bands would you add to your soundtrack?

(If you want to add details as to what song would match what movie scene for kicks, that would be awesome!)

BTW, the TGOs will miss you, and break a leg on your new adventures in college!

Alexandra said...

Hey Ben,

You will be going to school a block away from me in the fall! hope to see you in harvard square sometime.

So do you plan on being in any plays or musicals at harvard?

Hey Ben.

Has there ever been a really embaressing moment that accidentally happened in the vineyard scene with andy? do tell.

If you could make one of your cast-mates your servant for the day, who would it be and why?

Olivia M. said...

Ben Moss, i love your light!! :)

With the first leg of the SA tour coming to end comes (and I'm very sad to say) your last performance on the tour as well :( How are you prepping for you that? (or are you not thinking about it at all?) And what are you looking forward to or what plans do you have after Spring?

Ally said...

What is your favorite:




City so far

Leah from Louisville said...

as a rising college freshman fresh from the horrors of application, i'm curious how your application/acceptance/etc. process was affected by being on tour. could you talk about that a bit?

thanks, and enjoy harvard!

Anonymous said...

you will be missed so much. i am so sad that i wont be able to see you as ernst!
My question is: if you could be in a scene (as Ersnt) that you are not in, what would it be and what would you be doing in the scene?

Annie said...

I saw you in Into the Woods as the Granny, you were great! Is that the craziest role you've ever played? If not, then what is?

Lauren Helen said...

Hey Ben, you're my favorite! :) I was just wondering what your favorite city has been to visit and what places you would recommend going to if traveling across the country.

Lauren said...

What is your favorite old school disney movie? you can only pick one!

Good luck at Harvard. You will be greatly missed!!

Julia said...

You're pretty much made of amazing, as evidenced by all the people who have posted above :)

Define music (for you personally) - the all-encompassing emotions, the stories - how has it affected your life? Can you imagine your world without music?

Wishing you luck and boundless springs of creativity in the future, though you probably don't need it :D

Angelo from Guam said...

Hey Ben,

Hi, first of all I just want to say you're amazingly talented vocally and instrumentally :)

I'm a pianist myself for about 13 years now, and I was wondering before you go out to do a show or do a recital or what not, do you have any pre "ritual" routines?

As for the role of Ernst, do you realize everynight that you are actually kissing a guy? or has it become subconcious?

Thank you so much and I wish you luck before you leave the cast for Harvard :)


Anonymous said...

Which fans stick out the most to you? or are the most memorable when meeting them at the stagedoor?

Which fans have traveled great distances to come watch the show?

Little Debbie said...

In ten years, at the Spring Awakening cast reunion, what will your response be to the question, "So Ben what are you up to these days?"

Best of luck,

Anonymous said...

If you had to pick just one fan that remains memorable, who would it be and why?
Also, are you allergic to anything, wear glasses, etc?

heytheremeranda said...

Hey Ben!

First of all I want to say congrats to getting into Harvard!

I was just wondering what made you want to audition for Spring Awakening and what was the audition process like for you?

Best of luck with everything!

Irene from Guam said...

Hey Ben! You're absolutely amazing and talented in every way, and I'm really going to miss you when you leave. :'(

Do you consider yourself a celebrity? How does it feel to be greeted by fans at the stagedoor every night?

What advice do you have for aspiring actors?

How long have you been playing the piano? :)

Will you join the Harvard theater program once school starts and be in college plays and performances?

Kaimi from Indianapolis said...

Do you have any funny stories of people trying to interact with you onstage during a performance?

Christina said...

first, ben you are one of my favourite spring awakening cast members ever! you have the most beautiful voice, so although you're on your way to becoming a fancy composer and all, please don't ever stop singing. :)

as a fellow incoming freshman, i'd like to know how you're feeling about starting university next year - nervous? excited? either way, good luck! :D

wishing i could play hanschen to your ernst,
christina from toronto

Anonymous said...

My family is going on vacation in DC and were wondering what some of your/the cast's favorite places to visit and eat at in DC?

What is something funny/memorable that happened to you or a SA cast member recently? I know there has to be lots of them since you all seem to get along so well!

Good luck at Harvard, college is awesome!

Rozzie said...

Hey Ben!

1. What was your favorite thing that you and/or the cast visited during the tour?
2. If you could see one Broadway show that's playing today, what would you see?
3. Were you able to watch the Tony's? If so, what did you think of the results?

Carole said...

hi ben! :)

i really admire and respect you as both a musician and a thespian. my question to you is who or what inspires you when you write music? also, if you weren't an actor or a musician/composer, what do you think you would be?

good luck at harvard, and (when the time comes), congrats on a successful run in spring awakening. :D

Ben, you're a music comp major obviously. But why Harvard out of all the music convservatories in the country (and out while we're at it lol)? Do you plan on adding an extra major or doing a minor unrelated to music composition?

Will you PLEASE come to Guam?!?
Love you, Ben.

Irene from Guam said...

Did you get a Guam keychain? :D

Anonymous said...

I must say, you will be sorely missed. I'm just glad I got to see you in Boston and won't have anything to do with this Ben Fankhauser riffraff.

Annette said...

Hey Ben!! First off I wanna say that you are an amazing performer and everyone will miss you when you leave and go to Harvard!!
My Questions:

What is the craziest/most memerable/creepy/cooliest thing you have ever gotten from a fan??

What is the craziest/ most memerable time you have had with a fan??

What are your pre-show rituals?? What about the rest of the cast??

(last one I swear) If you could play any part in any musical male or female who would you play??

Best of luck to you as you go into college and I hope to see you on the stage again.

Annette from Chicago

Anna said...

Hiya Ben!

It is well known that you and the cast are really close friends. So you guys must pull pranks on each other all the time. What is the best prank that has been done to you or by you to another person? What is the best prank done to anybody by anyone else?

We are going to really miss you! You will never be forgotten by TGOs.

Love Anna from Poland

Its a sad thing to see you leave the show, but I wish you the best of luck with your future endeavors! Anyways, I was wondering:

1) What is the creepiest/disturbing thing a fan has done for or to you?

2) What is your favorite movie?

3) What is your most memorable or favorite memory while you were on tour?

Good luck with Harvard!

Sincerely Angela from California.

Jillian said...

Ben, you are awesome :D!

First, are you completely nervous about leaving the cast and the start of Harvard and a new chapter in your life?

And second, what was your favorite book as a child?

Lily from Brookline said...

Do you remember your first (musical, theatrical, etc.) rejection?

Grace said...

1) Why Harvard/Boston?
2) Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I'm going to school next year near Boston, too! (Wellesley College)

Have fun the rest of the tour and at Harvard! You're amazing! :)

How do you feel about kissing Andy Mientus every day in the show?

What is it like performing as Ernst?

TheBobbyHall said...

Can we just pause for a moment while I say that:

1. I would love to marry you once that is considered legal. Hit me up. Rochester February 14th(?); more than likely.

2. You are currently playing my dream role and I hope you appreciate it as much as I know I would if I ever was Ernst.

3. I just hope one day I can meet you; hit me up on twitter!

griffen said...

Hey Ben!
My question has two parts. What are you looking forward to the most about starting college in the fall?
What's the one thing you think that you think you'll miss most about being on tour with Spring Awakening?

You are a fabulous Ernst! Good luck at school!

griffen said...

Hi Ben!
Blake answered this question for me on his Profile of the Month, and I'm curious to hear your response to it as well, especially since you're going to school to be a composer. If you could take any play or book and turn it into a musical, what would it be and why?
Love you and the show!

Michelle said...

How long did it take you to learn the choreography for Bitch of Living? The movements that you do while sitting in your chair, facing the back of the stage, look like they require a "rub your tummy and pat your head at the same time" type of coordination.

Anonymous said...

I saw you in Des Moines and you were awesome!! I was wondering though how the entire cast travels from place to place? Do you all fly or drive or can you choose what you want to do??

Mary said...

Hi Ben!

What was your favorite Tour location so far?

Emily said...

I was just wondering if the handheld microphones are really on when you sing, or do you just use the ones hidden on your head?
has a microphone ever gone dies when you were performing?

Caroline said...

hey ben! i saw you in louisville and you were my favorite actor in the show (even though i love them all).

im a big musical theatre geek and i was wondering what they best show you've ever seen was (mines SA... of course)

love you and the show! Good luck with school!
i would write "marry me" but that might be a little bit creepy.

Maya said...

Ben, congrats HUGELY on your Harvard acceptance! You are amazingly talented and I only hope I can touch the lives of so many with such brilliant art someday as you have!

As someone who's endured and enjoyed my share of stage kisses, I wonder: have you ever gone on after eating something super gross (anchovies, garlic, etc.) just to freak Andy out? Or vice-versa, anything super delicious or strange (Pop Rocks?)?

Maya from Arizona :)

griffen said...

Hi Ben!
The word on TGO is that you have a thing for the movie "Mean Girls". If you were one of The Plastics, who would you be and why?
Love you and the show!

PinsAbigail said...

Hey Ben!
You are a fantastic performer. So if you could cast yourself in any role what would you pick and how would you cast some of your fellow Spring Awakening cast members?
PS you will be missed and good luck in the future.

caroline said...

hey ben! i loved you in the show and i love your Touch me solo...its been stuck in my head forever.
so on tour, you probably dont get any home cooking, so i was wondering if there are any trashy foods that you eat all the time, or if your family sends you care packages, if there is anything that they always put in it?

also, what is your favorite thing to do on a day off?

next time i see the show i will miss you. your were my favorite.

Alex said...

Hey Ben! I loved the show in DC and especially you as Ernst. So I have a two part question:

1a) If you could choose one song, either SA-related or not, to describe you and your life now, what would it be and why?
1b) Which SA song do you relate to the most and why?

Thanks, Ben! You'll be missed! :D

ps- pick our questions. haha. we love you.

Anonymous said...

I heard from an interview with Blake and Christy that there are indeed people in the band/cast/crew who are conservative. While surprised at this, I was indeed excited that there are more theatrical people with whom I share the same political beliefs. Are you at liberty to divulge the names of said people?

Griffen said...

Hey Ben,
If one of the Jonas Brothers was really replacing you as Ernst, which one do you think would be the best fit for the role? Why?

Love you and the show!

Irene from Guam said...

What is your favorite musical other than Spring Awakening? If you could cast yourself as any role in any other musical, which role would u choose?

What qualities do you want your dream spouse to have? :P i'm sure everyone wants to know.

What clubs, sports or other activities are you hoping to participate in at Harvard?

Marly said...

Hey ben!

1. if you could have anyone's solo song from the show, which would it be and why? boy or girl.

2. How do you feel now that you are done with your run of Spring Awakening? Do you think you will make a return to musical theatre any time soon or will Harvard keep you too busy!

3. Who is your celebrity/Broadway star crush?

4. Spring Awakening is full of controversial topics, what is like being able to perform such a powerful and intense show, do you ever get sucked in too much emotionally? Acting wise how do you take yourself to that place each night?

thanks so much Ben, you will be missed!

Hi Ben, love you and the show!!! questions,

- in extended run, you say that the guilty ones know everything: Honestly are you guys ever weirded out by the guilty ones and how much they know about your personal lives? what is your weirdest/creepiest experience with a fan?

-random questions:

An from San Jose, CA. said...

Hello, hello Ben Moss!

I was browsing a fanfiction website and came across the Spring Awakening category. After a bit of searching, it looks like Ernst is the most popular character to write about with 51 out of 171 stories, and Ernst and Hanschen's celebrity couple name is Hernst. Any thoughts or musings on the subject?

If you were a flavor of ice cream, which would you be and why? (I'd be mint chocolate chip--cool exterior but ultimately sweet. =])

Did you ever see the 90210 rendition of Spring Awakening on tv? If so, what did you think about it?

Hope life is treating you spectacularly. Best and brightest wishes for your future!

Adam said...

What has your favourite memory been while on tour?

ATUgirl said...

(There's over 100 questions. Okay, so my odds aren't so great, but here goes)

Are you intending on pursuing acting/singing after you graduate? In conjunction with that, what are you planning on making your major in college?

Leah said...

Hey Ben!
I just wanted to say that you were absolutely incredible the two times that I saw you in Boston! Your voice moves me to tears!

As an actress and piano player myself, I was just wondering when and why you first got involved with theatre and music?

Also, who is your favorite musician/ musical group?

Best of luck at Harvard and with everything else that you do in the future!!

Ethan said...

I'm not sure if this was asked yet because it would take an hour to go through all these comments. Anyways here's my question:

What are you planning to study at Harvard? (theater, music composition, etc.?)


Would you rather be blind or deaf?

Did you always want to be an actor/composer/musician? If not, what else did you want to be when you were younger?

Griffen said...

Hey Ben!
Knowing how talented of an actor you are, I'm sure you could play any role you wanted :) But if you had to choose, what would you say is your "dream role"? What song would you use to audition for it with?

Love you and the show! You are a fabulous Ernst, and a delight to watch on stage :)

Anonymous said...

Hey ben!
First of all I'd just like to say that you are so amazing and talented and I've thoroughly enjoyed watching you play ernst especially when I got to sit next to you on stage for most of the show!
anyways on to my question, do you have a particular quote you like or live by? I need a senior quote and all the ones I like are from Spring Awakening lol any ideas?
also good luck at harvard and any of your other endeavors!
Love, Brigid

Frankie said...

Are there any habits, tips or tricks that you have picked up while in Spring Awakening that you will continue to use?

Mel said...

Hey Ben :) you are great in the show!

what will you miss the most about being on tour with Spring Awakening, and what will you mis the least?

Spring Awakening must be such a demanding show, how do you (and the rest of the cast) maintain such a high level of energy each night? What do you do when you are sick, have you ever gone on when you felt kind of sick? and if so what did you do to work through that?

Thanks, sorry for the cluster of questions in one :) love you Ben!

What are your favorite books to read?

Are you a superstitious person, do you have any rituals before, during intermission, after, etc. the show that you do?

Can you please please do a hot minute with Ben Moss :)

favorite food:
favorite song to perform/ listen to from the show:

Ariel said...

-Where you a big Spring Awakening fan before you auditioned?

-What really got you started into musical theatre?

-Do you have plans to continue in musical theatre and audition for more things after you finish your Spring Awakening run, or is Harvard too time consuming?

-Who have you roomed with the most on the tour?

-The last performance for you, Blake, Julie, and Henry Stram will probably be very emotional for you guys and the whole cast! What do you hope your last performance to be like and what do you hope to get from it?

-What's it like being one fo the youngest cast members? Does it make anything different?

-whose your celebrity crush?

-Do you think once you leave you will find yourself stalking thing Totally Trucked videos or the blogs just for good times sake?
love ya Ben!!!

Hey Ben, you are amazing, so sad that you are leaving the tour soon!

If you could have anyone else's solo song from the show, male or female which would it be?

Okay and I'm sure that everyone wants to know, so please share, what qualities or charecteristics would your dream spouse have?

What is your favorite old school disney movie/charecter?

Say a big time hollywood director wants to make a movie about your lives on tour with Spring Awakening. Which actor would play Ben Moss and anyone else in the cast?

Kyle said...

What was like to be cast in SA at such a young age? What made you have the initiative to go audition? Were you scared because you were just out of high school?

Charlie said...

Hey Ben!
First off, you are the perfect Ernst and we're so sad to hear that you'll be leaving. We saw you in toronto and you were absolutely amazing.

Anyways, what is your favourite role you've ever been?
What is your favourite youtube video?
Who is your musical theatre crush?

marry me ben moss?

is it weird having so many fans who know everything about you and the rest of the cast and does it ever geting annoying or just too weird not to have as much privacy any more?

if you were an animal what animal would you be and why?

If the Spring Awakening Tour cas members were disney charecters, what would they be? For example I see you as Chip from Beauty & the Beast or as Peter Pan :)

love ya, Meredith :)

Kenzie H. said...

Dear Ben, I adore you! love you and the show!

I've really been wanting to ask this and to know how the cast feels about this, so please pick this one :)

What is it like performing Spring Awakening in small towns, or say towns that will most likely not be as supportive as San Francisco. For instance, when people leave during intermission (or even during!) how do you and the rest of the cast feel!? Does it ever make you guys loose your stride or energy?

thanks, i hope you answer this. you will be missed so much, don't go! but since you are :(, good luck in the fall! xoxo

Sun said...

BEN! I LOVE YOU. i saw you in the last performance in D.C. and you were fantasmic :)

Anyways, I was wondering how you balance your work as Hanschen with focusing on school and preparing for college? If anyone can teach us a lesson on time management, its you!

Also, what is your biggest pet peeve, and what is the worst relationship you have ever been in?

Thanks for being incredibly hott, a great performer, and an unbelievable singer! haha. I hope you will answer my questions and good luck in the future!

Do you still feel strange when people recognize you or ask for your autograph? Has your life changed due to the fact that you have tons of fans that love you? :)

Suzanne said...

What was your audition experience like? Was it a long/stressful process or did they love you from the start?!

Meghan said...

Hi Ben!
My question is..During high school, how did you balance music, performing etc, and school, so well that you got into harvard? If you werent going to harvard, what other schools would you consider?


Meghan, a fellow incoming college freshman

p.s. Will you marry me?

Alex B. said...

Hey Ben!

You're my favorite Ernst ever! I have two questions for you though.

1.) What is going to be your major at Harvard University? (A fellow Bostonian welcoming you to Boston!)
2.) If you could swap roles with someone in the cast, who would you swap with? (For male AND female parts)

Good luck at Harvard! Hope to see you around Boston!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you just want to send a quick note to all the cast members telling them you appreciate their work, you can email us here at totallytruckedblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I will be happy to forward your email to the cast, but to preserve their privacy, it is unlikely they will email you back (I will, though).

You can also send individual performers fan mail and care packages care of the theatre at which we are currently performing or will be performing. Go to the theatre's website (listed above), find their mailing address, write the actor's name as well as "Spring Awakening" and send c/o the theatre. Remember, we are often at these theatres for only a week so make sure to allow for delivery times. It's a better bet to send it to the theatre we will be going to next as they can always hold packages for us until we arrive. Letters received late will not be forwarded to our next location.

2. How Can I Audition for Spring Awakening?
From time to time, we have open calls in larger cities across the US. We will post any additional open calls here. Subscribe if you havn't already to keep informed. In the meantime, we've made it easy for you to submit yourself singing a folk/alternative rock song on video. Go to: http://www.springawakening.com/videoauditionsubmission/ Make sure your submission is less than 500 MB and is one of the accepted formats. Your screen should change and you should get a confirmation that says your submission has been received. Trust us, people are called in this way. Lucas Wells was cast because of an online submission!

3. How Do I Score On Stage Seats?
That is really up to the individual theatres. Most of them won't release the seats until just before performances because they want to make sure the house is sold first. Some do so online, although the ticketing systems they have in place often can't accommodate our unique seats onstage. Most of them are available only at the box office (though you can purchase them for a performance in the future). The Guilty Ones Street Team members have the rights to purchase these seats before the general public. Any seats left over will be released to the box office and may also be purchased as part of rush tickets (discounted, day-of tickets).

4. How Do I Join The Guilty Ones?

The National Guilty Ones Street Team is a way for fans of the show in each of our tour stops to help us spread the word. You will get access to parties, meet and greets, and other special events while meeting new friends who share your passion for the show, all while gaining some valuable marketing experience. You must be at least 15 yrs old. Email your contact info to nationalguiltyones (at) gmail (dot) com.

5. Can I Get Discounts?

From time to time, a theatre may offer us discounts to send out to our fans. We will post any here on the blog. Subscribe now!

6. Who runs this site? This site was created for fans to stay connected with our touring cast and follow their adventures around North America. Ideally, it would be in the voice of the cast members. Unfortunately, our cast members are often too tired or busy to post lengthy blog posts on a regular basis. Company members will contribute a post from time to time and every month we will have a compiled blog post that most every company member will participate in. The other stuff like updates, etc, will be posted by me. My name is Pun. I work for the production, love this show, its cast, and our fans, and I'm so very glad you're here!

Co 231 W 39th Street Suite 1200 New York, N.Y. 10018.
