NY Man in our upcoming Main Stage production, I Love You Because*
PCS: What is your favorite love song and why?

ET: “Make You Feel the Love”- Adele. It’s my wedding song!

PCS: Where is your favorite place to visit in NYC and why?

ET: Bryant Park– it’s great for people watching

PCS: Where / What is your favorite coffee shop?

ET: Favorite coffee shop I guess is Starbucks. But the best coffee comes from Wawa!
Favorite drink is seasonal—currently I’d get the gingerbread latte, nonfat. No whip 🙂

PCS: Where / What is your favorite watering hole?

ET: Before we moved to the ‘burbs, we loved The Industry in South Philly. I’m typically a beer guy, so whatever stout or porter they had was great.

PCS: Where did you go to college and what did you study?

ET: Catholic University of America — Musical Theater

PCS: Please tell us someone you love and why you love them. “I Love You Because…”

ET: My husband Ray. I love him for so many reasons. He loves me for me, but inspires me to be a better person. Plus, he’s an amazing chef and he’s super cute!


PCS: What is the craziest thing you have done in the name of love?

ET: In 10th grade, to win the heart of Emily Rindone, I made the SAPPIEST of love mixes for her. It started with “A Heart Full of Love” from Les Mis. I mean, SAPPY.
P.S. – It didn’t work. Haha!

PCS: Who was your first crush?

ET: He-Man


PCS: What celebrity would you want to meet for coffee and why?

ET: Allison Janey — I’m convinced we’d be best friends.

PCS: Aside from necessities, what is one thing you could not go a day without?

ET: I would have to say a cup of coffee. The day doesn’t start right with out it!

PCS: What is your favorite holiday and why?

ET: Thanksgiving! The whole family gets together–and with the Thompson clan, it’s an intimate dinner for 35. Plus there’s nothing better than the post-Thanksgiving dinner nap!

PCS: What makes you laugh the most?

ET: Anytime we get together with friends and play games, it normally has moments of uncontrollable laughter.

Fun Fact: Eric Thompson will be performing in our Valentine’s Day Cabaret, IT TAKES TWO: A Cabaret of Duets along side many artists. One in particular is his twin brother, Mark (Austin in ILYB)
