The Broadway Boys Tournament is on!  Just like March Madness, different Broadway Boys will go head-to-head until we narrow it down to the hottest Broadway Boy of them all!  But we are not looking for the prettiest pretty boy!  We are looking for the guy who has a unique mix of talent and looks!

THE "FINAL FOUR"


KYLE COFFMAN                           HUNTER PARRISH

ALAN RICKMAN                             BOBBY STEGGERT
