Brady also has the challenge of playing a male role in “Man of La Mancha”. Brady portrays Tenorio, another of the muleteers, whom Brady describes as “a member of a gang who lies, cheats, steals, and chases women.”
Brady’s favorite part about portraying this character is, “mocking the other characters and only having to memorize one line.”
Like Inboden, Brady’s biggest challenge is playing a male role, and remembering, “to lower my voice and be manly.”
