The Broadway Boys: Mr. November 2018

He's made the news worldwide for decades. He's appeared in several Hollywood films. And he's well-know for his temper, though his closest friends know he can be warm, caring and fiercely protective. Like many celebrities, he is misunderstood.  These days, he is literally the biggest star on Broadway, the talk of critics and fans alike, headlining a gazillion dollar musical spectacle that bears his name and tells his shocking and tragic story. Is it any wonder King Kong is Mr. Broadway November 2018??!!
