Video: Actor Christopher Sieber on Broadway’s support for bullied Colorado teen
By John Moore
In 2008, Adrian Ulm made national news when it was learned that the 14-year-old middle-schooler from Centennial, Colo., was being beaten up for, among other reasons, taking part in theater. He endured taunts including “Nazi,” “Jew” and “gay” for two years until an inevitable confrontation left him with a broken collarbone and facial bruises.
When actor Christopher Sieber heard about Adrian, the “Spamalot” actor invited the boy and his father to New York, where the Broadway community treated them to a weekend of shows, backstage visits, friendship and support.
