Cassel always wanted to be a song and dance man. That was until the 1996 Canadian Stage Company’s production of Angels in America-Parts 1 & 2. Those productions were monumentally enlightening.
Such enlightenment expanded with another pivotal career opportunity when Cassel had the opportunity to give life to ‘Mr. Bojangles’ in the 1999 U. S. National Touring production of Fosse.
In 2004 Cassel watched a television documentary that changed everything.
