BRANDON RUBENDALL
Full given name:
Brandon Rubendall

Nicknames:

First Broadway show you saw:
I can't remember which one came first, but it was either Beauty and the Beast or Big. Either way, they both blew my mind as a child and solidified my future.

Favorite part you've played onstage:
That’s easy: Fiyero in Wicked. That’s one of those roles you grow up wishing and hoping you get to play. But I always thought I was too tall, couldn't sing high enough, and pretty much every doubt that every actor has growing up. Well, it happened and the fact that it came a reality still blows my mind. I remember going home that night after my first show and just crying from joy. Talk about a bucket list moment.

Dream role:
Like I said, **sung like Elphaba** Fiyeeeeerooooooo!!!! Some others on my list would include, in no particular order: Marvin in Falsettos (Shout out to the revival that’s coming next year ;-P), Guido in Nine, Judas/Jesus in Jesus Christ Super Star, Jaime in Last 5 Years, Robert in Company. Can you tell I love a saaaangin' musical?

Favorite activities:
HA! Well I can think of a couple that are probably NSFW, but to keep this family friendly, I LOVE video games, playing with my puppies, creating sweet music with my group Apollo Link. I also enjoy shooting/editing videos and designing websites etc. Ya know, the usual nerd stuff.

Favorite books:
umm... GQ magazine? I don't really read as much as I probably should.

Favorite movies:
Anything super hero related. If Marvel has their name on it, I'm usually obsessed. Anyone wanna go see Avengers 2 with me in May?

Favorite television show:
American Dad, Family Guy, Archer. There is nothing better than an adult cartoon.

People you admire:
Anyone who sets out to make a difference in this world for the better. However, people I'm obsessed with? Beyonce and Rihanna.

Favorite job before theatre:
I don't understand the question. If you had a favorite job before theatre, you probably shouldn't be doing theatre.

Worst job before theatre:
I made funnel cakes at a minor league baseball stadium in my hometown junior year of HS. That was pretty awful.

Favorite song to sing:
Just one?? Impossible to choose... (But if I did have to choose, it would be a song that my a cappella group, Apollo Link, has covered. Check out our stuff at www.ApolloLink.nyc #ShamlessSelfPromotion

Favorite song to strip to:
Y'all hear that new “Crazy In Love” for the 50 Shades soundtrack? Yeah, that. That was already my favorite song and this new version makes me feel so many things... :-O "uh oh uh oh uh oh oh no no"

Sexiest city in the world:
Rio. The end.

Celebrity crush:
I don't really have a celebrity crush but I do have a ton of talent crushes though.

Guilty pleasures:
Hehe, don't you worry about that one ;-)

Greatest ambition:
To win a Tony and a Grammy. Aw hell, let’s just go for the EGOT.

If you could have three wishes, what would they be?:
I wish to get rid of disease & sickness. For my 2nd wish, I wish for acceptance for those who are different. And finally, I truly wish for world peace. I know that is such a joke answer, but I think the world needs some peace now more than ever.

Favorite Broadway Bares moment:
Getting to be Elvis in 2014's Rock Hard. That number was eeeeeverything and it Gave. Me. My. Life. #ElvisTwerkTeam

Why is it important to you to be a part of Broadway Bares:
This is my way of giving back. I’m not a millionaire (yet), so I'm not in the position to give the money I wish I could to BC/EFA. However, being a part of Bares, you get to give back to the community, my community, by being myself and doing what I do best. Let’s face it, who doesn't want to feel sexy?? To be able to feel that AND raise thousands of dollars (strip-a-thon baby, look for my page this summer) for a cause that is so important to myself, as well as my peers, while also spreading awareness??? There is nothing like it in the world. That, my friends, is why I am a part of Broadway Bares.
