Welcome to Broadway! New Faces of the 2013-2014 Season (Quarter 2)

DON'T FORGET TO VOTE IN ROUND 7 OF "HOT OR NOT": THE BEAUTIFUL EDITION!
CLICK THE SHOW ICON TO YOUR RIGHT, TAKE THE POLL, 
AND CLICK "DONE" TO MAKE IT COUNT!  
POLL CLOSES AT NOON ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15TH!  VOTE NOW!

Each quarter, I thought it would be nice to recognize all of those performers who are living the dream - making their Broadway debut.  The first quarter, there were some 58 debutantes, covering nearly every show.  This quarter, that number went all the way up to 91 (and I am pretty sure I missed a few - sorry!)!

After Midnight

This time around, there were a few famous names from TV and film, like Tom Skerritt, Ashley Williams and Fred Dalton Thompson from A Time to Kill, Rachel Weisz from Betrayal and Zachary Quinto from The Glass Menagerie.  And there are a few newbies that are already making a big splash, like Mary Bridget Davies of A Night with Janis Joplin,  A Gentleman's Guide's Lisa O'Hare, Twelfth Night/Richard III's Paul Chahidi, and Macbeth's Anne-Marie Duff.  Of course, there are plenty of gypsies just starting out, working hard, dazzling us with their "triple-threat"ness... (note the number of fresh faces in After Midnight) and I'm sure they will be part of the next Broadway generation of stars!
