Durham native Michael Barra has taken his acting chops from Coginchaug High School to New York and Los Angeles and back to Connecticut again.
The 2004 Coginchaug High School graduate plays T-Bone, a store clerk, in this summer's blockbuster, The Amazing Spider-Man.
These days you can check out Barra not too far from home. He plays Edna in Hairspray - the Broadway Musical at the Ivoryton Playhouse. The show opened on July 5 and runs until July 29.
