Nice piece by Samantha Calimbahin, a communications student at Texas Christian University, about another one-time denizen of TCU’s halls. She profiles Class of 2003 grad and current NYC theater star Ben Thompson (pictured).
Thompson debuted on the Great White Way via 2010′s American Idiot. This season, at least until Christopher Sieber‘s broken wrist fully heals, he’s donning the fat suit daily to portray fearsome Miss Trunchbull in Matilda the Musical (Time‘s Top Play/Musical of 2013). As Calimbahin documents, it is for Thompson a dream fully and impressively realized:
When Thompson performed at his [TCU] senior jury, his jurors asked: “What do you want to do?”
“I’m moving to New York. I’m going to be on Broadway,” said Thompson.
