Sergio Trujillo is at the top of the Broadway heap. The choreographer of such hits as Tony Award-winning Memphis and Jersey Boys has the distinction of having four shows playing on Broadway at the same time. In the interview below, the former Toronto resident talks about working with some of the biggest names in show business and says he has the key to getting laid.
“If you are straight and a dancer on Broadway, you’re going to get laid a lot,” Trujillo says. Luckily, he says gays have no problem getting laid, either.
As for working with Brooke Shields, he says, “For someone who has been in the business for as long as she has, she is a real trooper . . . she wants to get it perfect.”
And what about those bad reviews for shows that have drawn throngs of happy audiences and Tony hardware?
“Basically, the reviews will line birdcages,” Trujillo says.
Memphis runs until Dec 24 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts. dancaptickets.com for more details.
