CRAVE Cincinnati Server Spotlight: Jimmy Houlihan

CRAVE Cincinnati’s Server Spotlight of the Week: Jimmy Houlihan 

Jimmy has worked as a server at CRAVE Cincinnati for two and a half years!

Favorite part about working at CRAVE: I love the strong sense of teamwork and camaraderie with my co-workers, and I love the vibrance and warmth of the atmosphere. 

Favorite Dish on The New CRAVE Menu: The Poblano Salad because I love that it is a nice twist on your classic Caesar Salad.  It is also great when topped with a medium-rare steak. 

Favorite Classic CRAVE Entree: Kogi Beef Tacos

Favorite Sushi Roll: Mexican Roll

When I’m not at CRAVE… you can find me at the theater!  I got my start with theatre in the 6th grade in the show Oklahoma! with the Youth Theatre of Hardin County in Elizabethtown, KY and ever since then I knew that theatre was going to be my life.  I performed in various community productions throughout high school then decided to pursue my passion in college. I am a graduate of Northern Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. During college and the years following I did most of my work with The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati.  I was featured as the Dogcatcher in Annie Jr., Wickersham Brother in Suessical Jr., Dasher in Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and in the ensemble of many shows such as Mulan Jr., Disney’s High School Musical 2 Jr., and Jungle Book Kids.
In the spring I will be in the male dance ensemble and Aladdin understudy in Disney’s Aladdin Jr. During this production I will be required to not only learn all ensemble music and dances but also place a bunch of focus on learning everything required for the actor who is playing Aladdin.
