Name Dropping: Adam Monley

Vol. 4.
Adam Monley is a good friend from way back, I'm talking early elementary school. We grew-up together in the same neighborhood and I tried my first cigarette on the roof of his house.

We later did many shows together, I was John the Baptist to his Jesus in our last high school musical Godspell! We also sang in many honor choirs and an a cappella quartet named the Eastsiders.

He has continued to on the stage and done very well for himself. He actually did a show with fellow name dropping alumni; Becky Gulsvig. At the time, they did not know the connections in my family to both of them and the fact the grew-up an hour from each other.

Adam has been doing some great things in NYC and across this country.

He has received a great deal of attention for his roles in the orginal Broadway cast of Mama Mia, Raul in Phantom of the Opera and Huck in the Deaf West production of Big River (both were national tours), and recently as Curly in a the Paper Mill Playhouse production of Oklahoma! off Broadway.

Here is an article about Adam.
