Since then, many of these Broadway babies have thrived and grown in the theatre scene. So today I thought I would start an occasional update blog of pictures of these stars in the making.
Mr. September 2009: Aaron Tveit
The very first Mr. Broadway has been up to a lot since his breakthrough in next to normal. The show: Catch Me If You Can; his role: the lead, Frank Abagnale, Jr. Tveit lead the company through a Seattle try out and a Broadway opening. Robbed, again, of a Tony nomination, this pro hasn't stopped promoting his show and his Tony-winning co-star, Norbert Leo Butz.

Mr. July 2011: Matthew James Thomas
And the most recent Broadway Boy, Matthew James Thomas, was recently featured in a photo essay on Playbill Online. The adorable superhero by matinee shows a nice sense of humor to go along with his cutie pie looks. Here are some highlights:

Ms. September 2010: Jill Paice
Most recently, this Broadway gal has been spending her time working regionally, with the New York Philharmonic, and off-Broadway. She is EVERYWHERE these days!

Ms. Broadway 2010: Patti LuPone
My favorite diva, Patti LuPone, has also been busy since her On the Verge days. She has starred in the New York Philharmonic's Company, and has been all over town passing the torch!
