Squigs Online: Memories of Adam Lambert and some early theater roles!

 An American Idol.

Another person making the leap as a non-Equity actor into Los Angeles theatre from the happy stages of San Diego County was Adam Lambert. He was playing a Porter (the tenor) at Reprise. This was well before American Idol and his current successes.  I had shared the stage with Adam a few times at the Moonlight Amphitheatre in Vista, CA, the last of which was their 2000 production of Grease which featured Adam as Doody and yours truly as Roger.  (You should hear our "Rock & Roll Party Queen.") In 2003, Adam had moved to North Hollywood with some other mutual friends, and they graciously let me crash on their couch during the run so I could cut my commute down a bit.  I remember sitting at the living room table, drawing my closing night gift illustration and listening to Adam while he sang in the bathroom.  The range and riffs were like nothing I had heard come from him, and I wondered if he would ever do something with that part of his abilities.  Well, it looks like he did just that.

How interesting! Wonder if there's any videos wandering around of those early performances of
Adam. If you go back to when he began as a child, you would realize that he has a lot of musicals under his belt!

Another thing I so love about Adam! He just keeps going and going with continued success in his chosen career. He never looks back, resting on his laurels. Adam's always on to the next thing. I love and admire him so much! Superstar!
