Peter Hermann On A Possible 'Younger' Musical: "I'd Be So Game"

When we talked to Younger author Pamela Redmond last summer, she told us that there's a world in which Younger could come to Broadway. She told The Dipp contributor Natalie Zutter that she's had interest from producers:"I think it would be a great Broadway show, when Broadway comes back," she said.

Well, Broadway's coming back in the fall, and from what it sounds like, Younger star Peter Hermann would just love to be in whatever Younger musical there might be.

We spoke with the actor about why Charles so badly wants to marry Liza and about the potential for a Law & Order: SVU crossover, and below, he (very humbly) addresses his musical theater skills.

The Dipp: There has been some talk about turning Younger into a musical. Would you be game for that? Do you have any musical theater background?

Peter Hermann: That’s a bit like sitting next to Yo-Yo Ma, and someone asking you if you play the cello! You’d be like, “Oh yeah, I’m great on the cello.” Except I’m sitting next to Sutton Foster and Miriam Shor, and the question is, “Hey, how’s your musical theater background?” [Laughs] I would have to dig back into the courage that I had in high school to do musical theater and brush up. [Laughs]

Mariska and I go see musicals, and we cry because that’s all we’ve ever wanted to do. We’re just sitting there in the audience and we’re like, “Why did we make these life choices? Why didn’t we take that left turn, or this right turn, so we could be in this musical right now?”

So I’m beyond game. I’d be so game. And giddy. Yes.
