Veteran to the Australian stage, and now conqueror of Broadway, Anthony Warlow says Wollongong’s arts scene is thriving.
The former Illawarra local is starring in the Capitol Theatre’s new production of Fiddler on the Roof, which opens in Sydney on Thursday.
The 54-year-old spends most of his time between Melbourne and New York, and is so busy he doesn’t need an agent. These days he doesn’t get much of a chance to visit his home town, but he said the evolution of the performing arts scene is becoming well-known.
“It pops up sometimes, and I know it’s very healthy and very good,” he said.
He recently caught up with Nancy Hayes who had nothing but praise for the once sleepy-sister to Sydney, after performing alongside Todd McKenney in “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” at IPAC.
Warlow said he felt like “Columbus in a new world”, with his career blossoming on Broadway.
Fiddler on the Roof will run at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre until the end of April.
