Actor Kyle Blair is busy at Stratford Festival

This year's Stratford Festival is challenging actor Kyle Blair, who stars in two key roles.

Blair plays two of the great stage musical roles, Billy Lawlor in "42nd Street" and Frederic the apprentice pirate in Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance."

"It's very physically taxing," Blair admits. 

"Those of us who do these kinds of shows, a lot of us  go to the gym regularly. Diet is a big factor in our lives. We're pretty healthy. You don't find many smokers in these companies."

WBFO and AM970's Mike Desmond spoke with Blair after a "42nd Street" performance with a major twist.
