Broadway Boys: Mr. October 2014: Michael Esper

Mr. October 2014
Michael Esper

WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: One of my favorite things about frequently attending Broadway (and off-Broadway) shows is watching performers whose work I love grow and take on more and more challenges.  Mr. October is one such guy.  Though he's only been on Broadway proper four times, his theatre resume is impressive.  It includes such off-Broadway high profile projects as Tales from Red Vienna (with Nina Arianda), Assistance, As You Like It, The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide...(by Tony Kushner), The Four of Us, and subUrbia.  He's also done his share of film and television, including A Beautiful Mind, Frances Ha, Runner Runner, Nurse Jackie, Person of Interest and the short-lived Do No Harm.    On Broadway, he started out by co-starring in the revival of A Man For All Seasons and later co-starred with Linda Lavin in The Lyons.  He's probably best known (so far) for playing Will in Green Day's American Idiot.  And now he's the lead in Sting's The Last Ship.  Isn't it refreshing that when you look an actor up on Wikipedia, he's described as being "notable for his work on the stage"?  That's Michael EsperMr. Broadway!

  1. In ,my book Mister October, November, December, January and March. An actor's actor. And I'm an actor, so I know. I've admired the hell out of him for years, not to mention his brilliant family, particularly kid sister Sharon, who made a brilliant debut in 2nd Stage's THE TALLS a year ago. Yep, just a chip off the ole block.
