HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Broadway Boys: Mr. July 2013: First Date's Bryce Ryness

Mr. July 2013
Bryce Ryness


WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: He's been a Broadway favorite since his Drama Desk Award nominated turn as Woof in the revival of Hair. (He made his debut in Legally Blonde.) Since then, he's made a big splash in regional and off-Broadway circles, originating roles in such shows as See Rock City and Dangerous Beauty and Sleeping Beauty Wakes, and taking on roles in such classics as Cabaret and Floyd Collins.  Most recently, he played the leading role of Philias Fogg in off-Broadway's Around the World in 80 Days; in fact, he left that show to join the cast of this season's first new musical, First Date.  Sounds like the perfect reason to name Bryce Ryness Mr. Broadway for July 2013!

FUN FACTS:

  • He's 32 years old.
  • He married his college sweetheart, Meredith, and they have a daughter named Mercy Jane.
  • Like his First Date co-star, Zachary Levi, Bryce voiced a character - one of the pub thugs - in Disney's Tangled.
  • Tangled was not his first brush with the House of the Mouse - he was part of a vocal group that entertained at Disney's California Adventure.
  • He belongs to a band called, appropriately enough, RYNESS.  They have 2 albums available on iTunes.
