The Dirt with Christopher Vo

Christopher Vo is kind of a big deal. He’s a Princess Grace Award winner and has been named a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. He trained at The Juilliard School and went on to perform with the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company and Aszure Barton & Artists. Since the Dallas, TX, native dominated the modern dance world for a while, he’s now conquering musical theater and becoming a Broadway babe.

Christopher is currently starring as Marty—a charismatic, charming and oh-so-talented bartender—in the national touring production of Come Fly Away. (His castmate is this month’s cover girl, Mallauri Esquibel!) Visit to see where you can catch Christopher in action, and read on for The Dirt!
