Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing another young actor form that show, Lyle Colby Mackston, who was nothing less than dazzling in his role. In his young life and growing career, he has already amassed an amazing resume - everything from concert appearances at Joe's Pub, to regional productions, including Spelling Bee, and workshops that have allowed him to work with no less than Bono, Julie Taymor, Brian Yorkey and Sting (see photo below)!
In this first part of our interview, Lyle talks about the process and rewards of doing an NYMF production, working with Ms. Balgord, and being there at the very beginning of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Plus, he answers a few of your questions!
