HC:Which of your cast mates is most like the character that they’re portraying on stage?
DO: If we’re talking about Beach Danny, it’s definitely Will Tondo, but we’re not. Mikayla Ott plays her role as Patty Simcox so effortlessly that it has to be her. Her energy is super contagious and is so fun to share the stage with.
