Broadway Boys: Mr. September 2010

A year ago, I announced my very first Broadway Boy, Mr. September 2009, Aaron Tveit, at the time making a real name for himself in next to normal as Gabe, and moonlighting on the hot teen nighttime soap, Gossip Girl.  Since then, he's gone on to a leading role in the forthcoming Catch Me If You Can.

So it seems only fitting that a year later, I salute another young Broadway talent, currently starring in one of Broadway's biggest hit money makers, The Addams Family.  After a Theatre World Award-winning debut as Franz in the still running hit show Rock of Ages, this talented guy's name has been on everyone's lips, joining a small group of up and coming "it" guys and gals, many of whom have been celebrated on this very blog, in similar style.

Whether he is doing the red carpet thing, posing for Out magazine, or doing New York in style with his boyfriend and cast mates, Mr. September looks poised to become a great big Broadway star!

And now I leave you with my two favorite images of Mr. September 2010, and advise you that at http://www.wesleytaylor.org/ (org not com) there are lots more fun photos and video.  These new Broadway folks sure know how to get themselves out there!

  1. I think Wesley is adorable and very talented! Unfortunately, like most of the cast, The Addams Family doesn't give him much of a chance to show it off. I think he's one we'll be hearing more and more about though, in the years to come.

    Great choice!

  2. Marcus,

    I totally agree with your comments. And I hope we are both right that we'll hear much more from him.
