Every day is opening night.

Ryan Silverman

In Broadway’s much-anticipated Side Show, Ryan Silverman more than holds his own on a stage of conjoined twins, reptile men and human pin cushions. Of course, Silverman’s had plenty of experience performing beside curious characters, making his Broadway debut as Raoul in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. In addition to this, he has thrilled audiences in various New York theater productions such as Passion, Cry-Baby and The Most Happy Fella. Next Tuesday, we will be able to catch Ryan as Terry Connor in Bill Condon’s masterful reimagining of our favorite musical! For now, we’ll have to settle for The Couch!
