Uploaded: Jun 2, 2011
If you're a local theater-goer, you might think of James Monroe Iglehart as The Big Bad Wolf from TheatreWorks' 2005 production of "Into the Woods," or you might have seen him sing "Ol' Man River" or play Sweeney Todd at Foothill Music Theatre. He was also hard to miss as a soulful singing clothes dryer in "Caroline, Or Change" at TheatreWorks a few years back.
