American Idol’s Constantine Maroulis Starring in New Musical

Audio clip:

He didn't win American Idol his season (Taylor Hicks did). But Boston Conservatory grad Constantine Maroulis is faring better than many who took home the title. The season four alum, a Tony award nominee for his leading role in the hit musical "Rock of Ages" is about to star in a new show. "Bulldozer: The Ballad of Robert Moses" is about the controversial New York power broker and master builder... of everything from bridges and highways to Lincoln Center.

FOX's Jane Metzler talks with Constantine Maroulis about his life after American Idol and his success on stage. He's joined by playwright/composer Peter Galperin, creator of "Bulldozer." They discuss the show's origins (A NYC Parks Department song competition) and why Maroulis found the role was worth losing his trademark long hair.
