SHORT TAKES With JAY KLAITZ of LEND ME A TENOR on Broadway

It’s hard to out belt the bellhop. Try it, it can’t be done! Jay Klaitz from Broadway’s hit comedy LEND ME A TENOR, knows well that this is true. We got Jay to give us his favorites when he isn’t hopping and belting across the stage. See what he had to say.

 

 

1. Top three songs that are most played on your iTunes/iPod right now (or name the three songs you always find yourself listening to.)

Gorillaz, “Kids With Guns” – one of my favorite bands. The new album is incredible, too. Gorillaz are SO great live.

03 Kids With Guns

Wilco, “Red Eyed & Blue” – my all time favorite band. Jeff Tweedy is the best singer/songwriter around…

Tesla, “What You Give” – the most underrated 80s rock band…and my personal favorite from that genre.

Tesla – Time’s Makin Changes_ The Best Of Tesla – 11 – What You Give

2. Name the three TV Shows that are the highest priority on your DVR (or name three television shows on “your must” watch list)?

LOST – what do we do now? A single tear just ran down my face.

 

 

30 ROCK – obviously the funniest show on TV.

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER – everyone is great on that show, but I’m a big fan of both NPH & Jason Segal.

3. What are the next three movies in your Netflix/Blockbuster queue (or name the last three movies you watched at home)?

 I’m just gonna name a few of my favorite movies… THE BIG LEBOWSKI,

THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS,

DISTRICT 9

 

4. What website is your current online addiction?

FUNNY OR DIE …for obvious reasons.

 

5. What’s the last book you purchased for yourself to read?

 Dave Eggers’ “WHA T IS THE WHAT“. Incredible book…Eggers is one of my favorite authors.

6. Name an NYC attraction (shop, café, bar, museum, gallery, park) you would recommend to people who have just moved to the city.

There’s a great bar called BERRY PARK,  in Williamsburg. It’s got a modern beer hall kind of vibe, kick-ass beers on tap, and an awesome roofdeck.

7. Name the place you hope to visit when you go on your next vacation.

GREECE.

Or JAMAICA

 

8. Favorite show on Broadway right now, or theatrical event?

Whatever madness is happening backstage at LMAT is my favorite theatrical event…

9. What is the one role (musical theatre, straight play, television, film, opera, ballet) you MUST play before you die?

I played the M.C. in CABARET in high school…I’d love to reprise that role someday. It’s so fun to be so sleezy and shameless…

 

10. Name one thing you want to accomplish in the next six months.

 A legitimate vacation.
