Interview: It’s A Gypsy Life For Newman!
In the two years since GUIDING LIGHT ended, Robert Newman (Josh) has had a successful run in theater, traveling across the country performing in productions of beloved musicals like Annie, Man Of La Mancha and, earlier this year, Curtains. “Life goes on, and as a by-product, careers go on,” the actor tells Soaps In Depth with a laugh. “Most of my time in the past couple of years since GL has been on stage. That’s where I love to be. I’ve had a great run of some outstanding roles, and they’ve all been successful.”
In his latest project, Newman is starring opposite Broadway star Tovah Feldshuh in Gypsy at the Bristol Riverside Theatre in Bristol, PA. “Gypsy is a musical that’s been around forever. Tovah is the leading character, Mama Rose. She’s the ultimate stage mother. She drives her two daughters’ careers to the point where they end up walking away from her,” explains Newman, who plays Herbie. “He signs on as the girls’ agent/manager, and he’s also pursuing Rose and looking to settle down with her, marry and have a family.”
