In December of 2007, Zachary made his first trip to the Big Apple for his first New York audition. He was thrilled to land the role of Kurt von Trapp in Broadway Asia and Troika Entertainment's Asian tour of The Sound of Music. Zachary would spend much of the next year traveling across China as the show blazed new trails in cities that had never before seen American musical theatre. The response from the audiences was overwhelming and positive. The tour played the cities of Chengdu, Chongqing, Wuhan, Harbin, Nanning, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Fuzhou, and Macau. Not only was the show a performance opportunity of a lifetime for Zachary, but also a chance to spend time with wonderful people from an amazing culture.
