Theater stars know what’s hot in entertainment, fashion and pop culture, so Broadway.com decided it was high time to tap into the after-hours obsessions of our favorite stage actors. Cory Michael Smith is currently breaking hearts and romancing Emilia Clarke in Richard Greenberg's Broadway adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. What does he get up to when he’s not wandering the streets of NYC on stage? Read on for Smith's obsessions, which include Lisa Kudrow, Central Park and pictures of puppies!
TV SHOW: The Comeback
"I've watched it almost 10 times through by now. Is there a more intensely pain-inducing, tragically hilarious leading character? If so, friendly reader, please direct me toward that show. OK...maybe Larry Sanders. Lisa Kudrow is brilliant in this."
MOVIE: What About Bob?
"One of the most repeatedly watched films from my childhood. I think Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss are monstrously funny in this."
SONG: "A Case of You"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah. I see you rolling your eyes. The early recordings of this are delicious. AND... the a cover by Joni herself from the Both Sides Now concept album from 2000 is a brilliant revisit. I think I spent a week during college curled in a fetal position crying to this song. But who didn't, right?! ...right? ...anyone?"
STAGE SHOW (OTHER THAN MY OWN): Hit the Wall
"Currently, I'm bonkers for Hit the Wall at Barrow Street. It is a passionate, earnest, confrontational depiction of a time in history with a very daring, heartened, courageous cast. I think it's brave and bold and filled with heart. Kudos to everyone involved."
BOOK: Franny and Zooey
"Just started it again. Love the Glass Family."
CELEBRITY: Julia Roberts
"That smile...as big as Luxembourg; and that's saying something."
APP: Huffington Post
"The HuffPost app for news from my phone..."
FASHION DESIGNER: Bespoken
Drinking a lot of water!
VACATION SPOT: Central Park
"I collect pictures of adorable puppies on my phone. I have little room for anything else. I don't have a dog, but I'm beginning to feel that my months without one are numbered."
