A ‘Beautiful’ Opening Night

Words can’t quite encapsulate how magical Sydney opening night of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical was.

I know it’s early days and we’ve only just begun.  But getting to work with this group of people has been such a dream.  And the love we felt from the audience Sunday night was so tangible.

Can honestly say, I never in a million years could’ve foreseen Beautiful being part of my story.  It’s a milestone moment, not only in my career but in my life.

The gratitude I feel couldn’t be more real x

Mighty Self-Care

Barry-Conrad-The-Upside-RUOK 2

By nature, I’m a pretty positive, optimistic, driven guy.  I love life and am young at heart.  But I’m not always strong.  I don’t have it all together.  Sometimes I really struggle.

I’m so thankful to be an R U OK? ambassador, because I get to play a small part in shining a light on what so many people grapple with: mental health.

The Mighty have an article on self-care and asked us to share 3 things we do when feeling low.  Here are mine.  To see what others shared, click on the grab below.

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.
