Born in Maryland, but raised primarily in Huntington, WV, where his father was a music professor at Marshall University. Parents met at The Juilliard School: his mother is a dancer; and his father, a pianist, marched in the inauguration parade for President John F. Kennedy in 1960. Among many jobs while auditioning for acting work in New York City after college was a stint as a window-dresser for the FAO Schwartz toy store. Made Broadway debut in 1993 as the title character in the original stage production of The Who's Tommy, which earned him a Tony nomination, and also led to special appearances on Who guitarist Pete Townshend's solo Psychoderelict tour. Won a Tony Award in 2004 for his portrayal of John Wilkes Booth in Stephen Sondheim's Assassins. A guitar player since his preteen years, alternate career includes touring with alt-rock icon and Hüsker Dü front man Bob Mould in the late 1990s, membership in bands such as Lame and Retriever, and the release of his first solo album, Dog Eared, in 2004.
