The Guys and Dolls of Broadway: Mr. Broadway 2010

Every month, be it the first or the fifteenth, when I sit down and choose a new Mr. or Ms. Broadway of the Month, I always say to myself, "Can you believe another month has gone by already?" Well, here we are, a full YEAR of the hottest talents on stage later, and I am naming my man and woman of the year! Time sure does fly!


To read about Ms. Broadway 2010, click HERE.

2009 might have been a good year to name this guy Mr. Broadway.  It was a banner year for him, a hit show on Broadway and a Tony Award.  But I think I'm glad I waited until 2010 to bestow this honor on one of my favorite Broadway people ever.  This year, that little hit show managed another full year on Broadway, survived a major cast change, spawned a National Tour, and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  Of course, no Mr. Broadway rests on his laurels.  No, this guy, along with a major Broadway director and an all-American rock band collaborated on another little show that pushed the boundaries of the Great White Way.  And though he was completely robbed at Tony time this year, I have a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more from this guy!  Upcoming projects include: Bring It On: The Musical and a musical written expressly for Robert Downey, Jr.  And, now, here he is...

Mr. Broadway 2010: Tom Kitt
