Andrew RothmanAndrew Rothman is a proud native of Cleveland, Ohio.

  • “Rothman wins us with his charm and exuberance even while we know he has walked away from his marriage. He is a strong and able singer with a nice falsetto and a powerful voice. His combination of hubris and vulnerability is fascinating.”

    “Rothman's boyish jubilation and full-bodied grin at the start of the show is endearing, but it is his talent as an actor and singer that endures from the beginning to the end (or the end to the beginning) of this play. He is remarkably comfortable and commanding on stage, which translates into a captivating performance.”
