Meet the NYC Geeks! Zachary Conner (Jordan)
Q: Who is your favorite superhero?
Q: What is your favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy movie?
Q: What makes you a geek?
Zachary: My undying love for anything and everything Smallville makes me a Geek. I can’t think of anything that is displayed with more love and pride in my apartment than my DVD collection of every season.
Q: What has been your favorite part of the Geeks experience up until now?
Zachary: Eli Bosnick plays Chip in the show and is an improv genius. I haven’t laughed as hard in recent history than when the two of us bounce ideas off one another during scene work. Rick has given us a good amount of freedom to explore moments in the show, which has made the entire experience incredibly fun.
Q: How do you relate to your character? How are you different from your character?
Zachary: Jordan and I are similar in that we both are a little neurotic. Obviously Jordan’s outbursts are a little more extreme than mine, but I definitely identify with some of his behavior. I’d like to believe I’m a little more sly when it comes to approaching someone I’m interested in, but I don’t know if it’s fair for me to judge that myself.
Q: If you could sit down to dinner with the characters from one show on Broadway right now, who would it be and why?
Zachary: Definitely the characters from Once. Preferably, I’d like to walk in on them having a jam session, like in the number “Gold”. That way I could just be that creeper in the back of the room with my feet up, eyes closed, and having a genuine emotional moment listening to them make beautiful music. It would be a delightfully cathartic experience.
Q: What is your dream role to play onstage?
Zachary: Younger Brother from Ragtime. Hands down. If not for the role itself, then for the fact that I would have the privilege of listening to that score every performance. Give me a couple of years. It WILL happen.
Q: Ewoks or Jar Jar Binks?
Zachary: Is it weird that I think Ewoks are incredibly freaking cute? If it wouldn’t mean enslaving a member of it’s own independent race and nation, I would totally have one as a pet. I mean, look at that face!
Geeks! opens this weekend! Come meet these fun, geeky folks. Be square, be there.
