So it seems only fitting that a year later, I salute another young Broadway talent, currently starring in one of Broadway's biggest hit money makers, The Addams Family. After a Theatre World Award-winning debut as Franz in the still running hit show Rock of Ages, this talented guy's name has been on everyone's lips, joining a small group of up and coming "it" guys and gals, many of whom have been celebrated on this very blog, in similar style.
Whether he is doing the red carpet thing, posing for Out magazine, or doing New York in style with his boyfriend and cast mates, Mr. September looks poised to become a great big Broadway star!

I think Wesley is adorable and very talented! Unfortunately, like most of the cast, The Addams Family doesn't give him much of a chance to show it off. I think he's one we'll be hearing more and more about though, in the years to come.ReplyDelete
I totally agree with your comments. And I hope we are both right that we'll hear much more from him.
