Fan Q & A: Part 2

• September 9, 2011 • Comments (2)

It’s  Fan Q & A, where you pose the questions to The Midtown Men.


J. Robert Spencer with wife Jenny Lynn Suckling on the red carpet at the Tony Awards

Q:  This question is mainly for the men with families:    I know that it’s a given that life in show biz isn’t easy on families, but I’m wondering how the touring is working with those of you (Christian and J. Robert) who have small children.  On the one hand, being on Broadway is a set schedule, same time same place every week, but very few full days off; and the tour has you out of town for a week (or more) at a time, but with some full weeks off in between.  Can you share a little about how you make it work? (no name)

A:  J. Robert Spencer – I actually have more time with my children than when I was on a broadway schedule 8 shows a week.  I have to leave for a bit here and there, but I still have plenty of room in my schedule.  I guess we’re also blessed with technology, and Skype has been a big help in staying in touch visually with the kids.  Thanks, stay in touch.  Bobby

    Yowza…I’d be hurrying home every chance I got! (is that inappropriate?) You go, J. Robert.

    As we all reflect this weekend on the attacks of September 11 ten years ago…I was wondering. Where were all of you that horrific day? Were you in NYC? Did any of you have personal connections to any of the victims? My Dad was right in the thick of it and it is still really emotional for him. See you all soon!
