Wicked’s Jonah Platt on Advice from His Pitch Perfect Brother & Loving Fiyero

first_imgAge: 28Hometown: Los Angeles, CACurrent Role: A Broadway debut in the megahit musical Wicked as Fiyero, the carefree prince who is transformed by his relationship with Elphaba.Stage and Screen Cred: After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Platt worked as a writers assistant on TV comedies such as Parks and Recreation and Family Guy. He shifted his focus to acting after appearing in L.A. productions of Bare and Floyd Collins and the 2014 Hollywood Bowl staging of Hair.”I’m very much a Fiyero. I love the fact that he takes people as they are—he’s the only one who doesn’t say anything about Elphaba being green when he runs into her. He’s confident without being a jerk. My favorite scenes are in the second act, when he becomes a bit more serious.””By the time I could walk, I was singing show tunes. My parents performed in college and raised us on musical theater. While other kids were listening to classic rock in the car, we were listening to Miss Saigon.””My first job out of college was driving Greg Daniels, creator of The Office, who was my next door neighbor. He said I was too young to be a writer, but I could hang out with him in his car. I was able to parlay that into a writers assistant gig on his next show, Parks and Recreation.””I’m writing a musical based on Lois Lowry’s The Giver. My composing partner is Andrew Resnick, associate conductor on The King and I, who I’ve known since I was two. The great playwright Sarah Ruhl is writing the book. We hope to have a first draft done by spring.””I met my fiancée, Courtney Galiano, doing Hair and proposed a year later at the Hollywood Bowl. She was a finalist on So You Think You Can Dance, and she just got an awesome gig assistant-choreographing and dancing in Grease Live! on Fox. I’m proud!””The only advice I got from my little brother [Book of Mormon vet Ben Platt] was to stay away from dairy and gluten. From the time he was two, it was ‘Broadway or bust,’ but I took a more varied route. The fact that we’re seven years apart makes it easy to support each other.” Wicked Related Shows View Comments from $95.00last_img read more
