Christopher Fitzgerald On Breaking Character During 'Spamalot' & 'Wicked20'

Broadway Legend Christopher Fitzgerald stopped by the iHeartRadio Broadway studio to chat about all things Spamalot, Wicked20 and Waitress The Musical film!

Fitzgerald revealed who makes him break character the most in Broadway's Spamalot, "It's it always involves Taran. Somehow. I think he kind of searches for it in a way. He loves living, I think, on the edge. And so any time there's a blip of something, he's like, right there. I mean, it's always funny when he goes, We are the nights who say, and the audience goes nee nee nee. And he's like, I'm going to say it, let me say it! And then I don't know, he and James to start riffing on whatever or like he'll say, like, you know, we want you to put on a Broadway musical, but nothing Disney. And then James, of course, was, you know, the genie in Aladdin. And James gives him a look... That's really fun to kind of live in. Every show is the unknown."
