Fun Fact:

Borle is a man of habit. Before every show the actor lights candles in his dressing room and stays grounded by calling his mother every night.

Quotable Quote:
“I was a comic book nut and grew up on Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Black Stache was this weird alchemy: I started doing the voice. Roger [Rees, co-director] and Rick [Elice, author] wanted to make him this pathetic guy, so the first idea I came up with is that he’s a sea captain who is seasick. His entrance is puking in a bucket, and after that, nothing can go right.” —Borle in an interview with Broadway.com, 4/12
