Squeaky is the recognized elder statesman of The Two and Only. Born in Springfield, Illinois and raised in Texas, Squeaky, is ingrained with midwestern charm. His story reads like a modern day tale of Pinocchio. His father was a clock maker and puppeteer and he left home quite early to go into show business. For many years he was partnered with Jay Johnson when they toured around the country together. He retired in 1977 when Jay was cast in a television role without his lifelong partner. This show marks his return to the stage. Squeaky loves that Broadway still has roles for older performers.
