Broadway Boys: Mr. January 2012: David Korins

Mr. Broadway January 2012
David Korins


WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: Sometimes the hottest guys on Broadway aren't up on the stage, but are content to do their work behind the scenes.  Such is the case with Mr. January, who smoking hot (I'm so jealous of his also pretty wife, Carolyn) and is so unbelievably talented.  He is a 6 time Drama Desk nominee, and I have a feeling his work on Broadway this season will be noticed come Tony time.  This season, so far, he is represented by three shows, and he designs other things, too - TV commercials, public spaces and restorations throughout New York City.  Just looking at photos of his work makes me get that theatrical "tingle" reserved for the very best.  Handsome, talented and tingly... David Korins, set designer at the top of his game. What a great way to start 2012!
