"After seeing a touring production of "The Drowsy Chaperone" at the Adler Theatre last year, Mark McGinn became interested in playing a character known only as "The Man in the Chair."
"'But I thought it was out of my comfort level," he recalled. 'As an actor, you want to push your comfort level, but you're never sure whether other people want you to do it.'
