RSO + MATTHEW MURPHY “A FINE SHOWMANCE”

Playbill’s “A Fine Showmance” series highlights RSO and husband Matthew Murphy.

rso-mm460g_200_20035MM: A Musical Exhibition is a collaboration between RSO and photographer Matthew Murphy. Playbill goes behind the scenes on how their artistic and romantic relationship came to be:

“Although theirs is not a traditional showmance, in the sense that they did not meet while doing a show, they ended up creating one together, so this might just be the finest showmance of all. For this latest installment of “A Fine Showmance” Murphy and Oliver talk about trying to start their relationship off slow, their favorite upstate getaway and how Murphy ended up crying in the middle of Washington Square Park with a Chipotle burrito in his hand.” – Whitney Spaner for Playbill
