FACE of the FUTURE: CINDERELLA'S Cody Williams

IT'S BACK!  BE SURE TO VOTE IN THIS WEEK'S "HOT OR NOT"!
IT'S THE FIRST ROUND OF VOTING FOR 
RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA!
CLICK THE GLASS SLIPPER TO YOUR RIGHT AND VOTE!

 I have to give credit where credit is due.  The usual bane of my existence, Broadway World, has selected a most excellent "guest blogger."  With a fun mix of backstage gossipy stuff, a clear knowledge of his profession, and the excitement of a fan boy, BWW has hit pay dirt with Cody Williams.  (Click HERE for his first blog.  As of today, he's done 3.)

Now in rehearsal for Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella, this cutie patootie shows a lot of potential.  This marks his second show on Broadway, the first being Memphis.  Previous credits include leading roles in Yank! and Singin' in the Rain.  Most impressively, he was Helen Hayes Award-nominated (DC's Tony Awards) as the lead in the critically-acclaimed Arena Stage production of Oklahoma! as Will Parker.

With such a resume, I can only assume that Cody Williams will be name we will hear from for a long time to come.
