Christopher Sieber's broadway credits include Spamalot, Chicago, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Into the Woods and Triumph of Love. He's also appeared on a few TV shows, most recently as a gay dad on "It's All Relative." Mr. Sieber is gay and took the opportunity of this TV show to publicly come out... though, not really... he'd never actually been hiding anything before.
If you're a gay man playing a gay character on television, I think it's important to set an example. When I was growing up, I didn't have any role models. I think I had Snagglepuss. [Mimics the cartoon character's, lispy voice] "Exit, stage left!" And Richard Simmons. I knew I was gay, but if I had to be like Snagglepuss, I was terrified. When I finally admitted to myself that, yes, I was gay--and realized that I don't have to be [that way]--I was fine. I was comfortable.
Chris lives with his partner Kevin Burrows in New Jersey. According to broadway.com, he spends much of the year living on an island cabin in the middle of a lake -- which he commutes to via rowboat. I guess it's a great way to stay in shape... who needs the gym if you have to row to and from shore anytime you want to run out for a Krispy Kreme? [...I know what you're thinking -- just stop eating doughnuts, dumbass! Except it's new years -- I have resolutions on the brain. -Chris]
