As a special opening day treat, I'm honored to be able to present an interview with Don Darryl Rivera!!
The 5th Avenue kindly arranged this for me a while ago and the answers arrived back literally the day before I got married!! So sorry for the wait, and without any further delay here's the man bringing Iago to life!

Do you remember Aladdin from its original release? Were you a fan of the film before you got the part?
With all the changes from film to stage (including the apparent removal of Abu and Rajah) there’s been some speculation that Iago might not even be a parrot in this production! Can you please confirm (if you’re allowed) whether or not Iago is still a parrot?

How do you prepare before a show? Do you have any superstitions or routines that you do before you go on stage each night?
