20 Questions with Billy Konsoer of Dracula: A Rock Opera

This season I thought it would be fun to get to know each cast a little bit better.  Therefore, I have come up with 20 questions to ask each cast member.  I will be updating the blog weekly and you can read all of their responses.  First up is Billy Konsoer.  You’ll remember him from last season’s Breaking Up is Hard to Do.  This season he is playing the title role in Dracula: A Rock Opera. Learn a little bit more about Billy and then come see him in Dracula: A Rock Opera running October 6 – October 31, 2010!  Single tickets go on sale September 20, 2010.  Call the Box Office at 248-377-3300 for more information.

  1. So excited that Billy is returning to the Meadow Brook Stage! We loved him in “Breaking Up is Hard to Do”! Last season was so special becuase we got to know the actors through the Cabaret and awards ceremony. We are looking forward to another great season!
