Mr. Broadway January 2011: Kyle Dean Massey
WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: This month, the show in which he has starred for more than a year is closing. The very first Mr. Broadway was Aaron Tveit, who Kyle replaced. Somehow it seems fitting that the last month next to normal is on Broadway, the title of Mr. Broadway goes to this talented guy. Of course, his star is on the rise, he has an amazing voice, a terrific stage presence, and a passion for life and people that is inspiring. He is pretty easy on the eyes, too, right?
- Currently appearing in: next to normal
- Birthdate: Good luck finding it... he's 28-ish...
- Other Credits: Wicked (Broadway and National Tour), Xanadu, Altar Boyz (off-Broadway), 42nd Street (National Tour)
