Broadway Boys: Mr. September 2014: Tony Yazbeck
Mr. September 2014
WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: Well, he's a true triple-threat as evidenced in his entire Broadway career to date. Sing-dancer-actor in Gypsy, A Chorus Line, White Christmas and Chicago. But it goes way beyond that, with a wide variety of roles in regional theatres, too. Serious drama in Sycamore Trees, song and dance man in My One and Only, and zany antics in Animal Crackers, just to name a few. Then, too, there's his charity work, including Broadway Backwards. He's worked his way up through the ranks from childhood (a was in Gypsy as a Newsboy with Tyne Daly in the early 90's) to understudy to ensemble member to featured roles and as a star, currently headlining On the Town. And that's why Tony Yazbeck is Mr. Broadway!
