WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: When I was looking up information on Mr. November, I realized he is long overdue for this. He is a staple on Broadway, in regional theater and even television. He counts among his leading ladies such stars as Chita Rivera, Jenn Colella, Kate Baldwin, Natascia Diaz, Lea Salonga and Ms. Broadways Laura Osnes, Amy Spanger and Ms. October 2012, Betsy Wolfe. He's co-starred with Hunter Foster, Malcolm Gets, Terrence Mann and Mr. November 2009, Chad Kimball. And that doesn't even count the people he's rubbed elbows with during season one of Smash! But even without his big name co-stars, he is a force to be reckoned with - leading man looks, a powerful voice and an acting range that runs the gamut from comedic roles and supporting characters to musical comedy and dramatic leading roles. And now, with The Mystery of Edwin Drood, he gets to show off all of those talents at once! Congratulations, Will Chase, you are Mr. Broadway November 2012!
