Rock N' Roll Party King

According to Playbill and Broadway World, Daniel Everedge is playing Roger in Grease. If you googled his name and didn't find anything, there is a reason. His name is actually Daniel Everidge. Both sites misspelled it. Now, it could have been that they both made the mistake naturally, but I would tend to believe one copied off of the other. (If I were to bet, I'd say Broadway World cheated off of Playbill because I have more faith in Andrew Gans that an anonymous Broadway World writer, but I don't even know if this was a stealing incident, so I certainly don't know who did what if it was.)

For those of you who care, Daniel Everidge received a BFA in musical theatre from Otterbein College. His biggest credit is spending a couple of years at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. Also, oddly, he seems to have worked for Binder casting, the Grease casting agency. Check this out:
scroll down to "Stop, Drop & Roll: ProActive NY short film fest" and look at the middle picture second row down. Interesting, right? (That is, if you could apply the word "interesting" to anything about supporting Grease casting.)

That is it for tonight because I must go work. A zeisen pesach to those who celebrate.

I bet they both copied from a press release that misspelled the name.

Hi blogger. Daniel's last name is spelled Everidge. He was in my MT class at Otterbein and is one of my great friends. Part of the program at Otterbein is to go on an internship, and he had his at Binder. He is also an amazing talent, and I can't wait for him to have this big break!
