WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: It was a matter of time before this guy joined the ranks of Mr. Broadways, really. He's appeared on and off Broadway in a variety of roles - comedy, drama, play and musical. Santino Fontana has also dabbled in TV (A Gifted Man), and film (Nancy, Please), and even the Internet (Submissions Only). But it is on the stage where he has found his greatest success, from off-Broadway' s Sons of the Prophet to the Broadway revival of The Importance of Being Earnest. And musically, he's done Sondheim (Sunday in the Park with George) and now, Rodgers and Hammerstein (Cinderella). These days, he's Prince Charming AND Mr. Broadway for February 2013.
Age: He was born in 1982.
Education: BFA in the Actor Training Program at the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theatre.
