Joe Montgomery may not have expected to act alongside James Earl Jones or sing on stage with Gladys Knight, but he’s done both of those things and a whole lot more.
Montgomery, a Lebanon native, is performing in his 10th Broadway production. He is playing Dr. Bennett in “Big Fish,” a musical based on a novel by Daniel Wallace and a movie directed by Tim Burton.
Montgomery graduated from Marion County High School in 1979. In high school, he performed in “Carousel” and played the lead in a production of “Godspell.”
