The Friday 5: Broadway Logo ABCs (F - J)

It's summertime, so let's have some fun! This week's Friday 5 is a little quiz to see how well you know your Broadway Logo ABCs. Over the summer, we'll look at each letter of the alphabet by way of my favorite thing... LOGOS!

Here's how it works. Each week, I'll have 5 letters of the alphabet cut out from different show logos. Some may be the first letter of the show title, others may be a letter within the logo.

This week, F - J, is mostly pretty easy. The answers will appear at the bottom of next week's Friday 5. Good luck!

Standing @ Zero: Moulin Rouge's Kyle Brown

So, why "Standing at Zero"? You know the numbers across the front of the stage? Zero is center, and we are putting one performer front and center.

The summer is heating up and Broadway is having a heatwave! With the opening of the first new musical of the season, Moulin Rouge!, things are off to a sizzling start. The entire company is so outrageously talented - triple threats, all. The ensemble, especially, is crazy good.  What they do nightly is breathtaking.  One of those ensemblists, Kyle Brown caught our eye last summer in Boston, and we can't wait to see him soon in the Broadway version! This is his 5th Broadway show, and we are sure it won't be his last!

Standing @ Zero:
Moulin Rouge's
Kyle Brown





Kyle has appeared regionally in A Chorus Line, and is active in the NOH8 campaign. He's also been in Broadway Bares. Before Moulin Rouge!, he made his debut in Legally Blonde, and went on to Priscilla Queen of the Desert, An American in Paris, and Anastasia.
