Mr. Broadway January 2011: Kyle Dean Massey

Mr. Broadway January 2011: Kyle Dean Massey

WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY:  This month, the show in which he has starred for more than a year is closing.  The very first Mr. Broadway was Aaron Tveit, who Kyle replaced.  Somehow it seems fitting that the last month next to normal is on Broadway, the title of Mr. Broadway goes to this talented guy.  Of course, his star is on the rise, he has an amazing voice, a terrific stage presence, and a passion for life and people that is inspiring.  He is pretty easy on the eyes, too, right?

INFO:
  • Currently appearing in: next to normal
  • Birthdate: Good luck finding it... he's 28-ish...
  • Other Credits: Wicked (Broadway and National Tour), Xanadu, Altar Boyz (off-Broadway), 42nd Street (National Tour)
  • Website: http://www.kyledeanmassey.com/
  • Look for him at: http://www.broadway.com/ (Vlog series); http://www.afterelton.com/ (nice interview)
  • Honors: 2010 Best Replacement - Actor (Audience Awards, Broadway.com); 2010 Out 100
  • Upcoming project: a return to Broadway's Wicked as Fiyero
  • Not to Be Confused with: Dancing with the Stars Finalist/Disney Channel Star Kyle Massey

  1. Kyle was in Next to Normal when I saw the musical and I thought he was terrific, as was the rest of the cast.
