Broadway Boys: Mr. August 2012: Andy Blankenbuehler

Mr. August 2012
Andy Blankenbuehler

WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: Perhaps the better question is why hasn't he been "Mr. Broadway" before now?  After all, he's been on a steady rise up through the Broadway ranks since his debut in the 1992 revival of Guys and Dolls.  Among his other credits as a performer are the original casts of Steel Pier (with Kristin Chenoweth) and Fosse.  His first choreographer credit came with the revival of The Apple Tree, also with Ms. Chenoweth.  Of course, he is most famous for his Tony-winning dances for In the Heights, and since then his provided the choreography for 9 to 5 and The People in the Picture.  Which brings us to why he's the man of the month - Bring It On: The Musical, which marks his directorial debut.  What a way to start! (My review of Bring It On: The Musical is HERE.)

OTHER INFORMATION
  • Age: He was born on March 7, 1970 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • Family: He's married!  To Elly Blankenbuehler!
  • Where You Might Have Seen Him: (Broadway) Guys and Dolls (1992), Steel Pier, Fosse, Saturday Night Fever, Man of La Mancha (2002)
