On the latest season of The Amazing Race, Jonathan Schwartz sang in the back of a cab in Ghana, to school children in Ghana and skipping to the elimination line in Sweden.Â Now the member of the famous singing Princeton duo with friend Connor will be singing in a Broadway production of the musical, Spider-Man.
Broadway.com reveals that Jonathan Schwartz is currently prepping for the Spider-Man musical, which will premiere on January 11, 2011.Â He revealed to Broadway.com, “It’s possibly the weirdest combination of things I ever could have thought of doing.Â I definitely didn’t think in the same six months I’d be doing The Amazing Race and then the biggest show in Broadway history.”
Jonathan revealed the reason for singing so much during the Amazing Race.Â “It kept us relaxed to make up nonsensical songs about tractor drivers in England or whatever.”Â Jonathan also feels that his time on the race has helped him prepare for his Broadway musical run.Â “The pace is similar.Â We’ve got to keep pushing to make deadlines and make the best product we can.”
Jonathan will be staring as one of the four members of the “geek chorus” that serve as the narrators in the Spider-Man musical.Â Jonathan joked about his looks to Broadway.com.Â â€œWe were the geeky Ivy a capella kids on The Amazing Race, and now Iâ€™m playing a geek, so I might be typecast in everything I do.Â Weâ€™re very much encouraged to be ourselves and mold the characters after our own personalities. I get to wear the prescription glasses I normally wear every day, so I barely feel like Iâ€™m acting.â€
