One minute you're an outspoken Actors' Equity Association member, and the next you're a councilor shaking things up in AEA and voting for the Tony Awards. That is, if you're Craig A. Meyer. Today, host Sally Fuller is joined by the triple-threat whose mile-long resume includes Broadway, Disney, and a 20-year stint as a Tony voter. Dive in with us as Meyer reveals how he ended up touring the world as "Almost Elton John," why he did not vote for The Lion King to win Best Musical, and what it takes to tell a great story on stage.
