Mr. Broadway February 2018: Gavin Creel

Long time readers may remember that Gavin Creel was the very first Broadway Boy of the Year, way back in 2009! A lot has happened in the last 9 years - not the least of which is a little award he picked up for his current star turn in a little show you might have heard of.  Personally, it wasn't until the recent She Loves Me revival that I finally got to see him perform live - I was starting to think he was a myth since he was out when I saw Thoroughly Modern Millie, La Cage aux Folles and Hair!  It was worth the wait - he's totally amazing. Plus he does great work for the community - he co-founded Broadway Impact, for one thing. Then, too, he's very easy on the eyes... Thank you, Gavin, for bringing sexy back to JK's TheatreScene, and congratulations, Mr. February!

A FEW FUN FACTS:
  • Birthdate: April 18th
  • Birthplace: Findlay, Ohio
  • IBDB Credits: 6 (My favorite: Hello, Dolly!, of course!
  • IMDB Credits: 24 (My favorite: The fact that he has 14 "Self" Credits!)
  • His Website: http://gavincreel.com/
