This flick surpassed everything I expected.

Action for days, crazy visuals, clever humour, hot leading lady, all injected with a giant shot of superhero fan-boy realness.

Thanks Warner Bros for having me.

BEAUTIFUL: The Carole King Musical

Barry-Conrad-Beautiful-Australian-Cast

So glad to finally share that I’ve joined the Aussie cast of Broadway hit, BEAUTIFUL: The Carole King musical, as part of American R&B/Soul group, The Drifters!

Growing up, Carole’s Tapestry album was a staple for us (thanks mom).  Who’d of thought that one day I’d get to be part of telling her story?  Man…  Life sure is an adventure.

We open at Sydney Lyric Theatre this September.

Glad to share that 4D, a short film we made a while back, has won a Spotlight Short Film Award in the US.

Congrats to all the team.  It’s a blessing getting to do what you love.  And any kind of recognition for that, big or small, only makes the lining more silver x

Farewell Hairspray

Farewell Hairspray

We’ve reached the end of Hairspray and words alone can’t explain how I feel.

While having the joy of playing Seaweed J. Stubbs, a lot’s happened.  I’ve grown and changed.  Hit euphoric highs and devastating lows.  Laughed, cried and everything in-between.

The emotions running through me sure are bittersweet, but anchored in only gratitude.

Heartfelt thanks to the whole cast and crew for enriching my life so much this past year.  Because of you, I’ve got a whole new reel of special memories to treasure.

Here’s to even greater days ahead, I love you all x
