Broadway Boys: Mr. April 2011: Charlie Williams


Mr. Broadway April 2011:
Charlie Williams

WHY HE'S MR. APRIL: Frequent visitors to this blog might be asking the more obvious question: why wasn't he Mr. Broadway sooner?  Well, as my followers know, Charlie Williams has been a favorite of mine since I saw him in Memphis.  But the Mr. Broadway for that show went to its star, Chad Kimball, and so it has taken Charlie's run in that show, along with a trip out west to premiere Leap of Faith, and finally a return to Broadway in the sizzling hot revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying  in order to be eligible for the honor again.  Of course, I'm sure I'd have named him this month anyway had I never seen him before.  That's just how great he is in this show.  What a dancer!  What an actor - yes, the ensemble acts!  And what a great, charming smile.  Then there is his kind, giving heart.  His Broadway castmates refer to him as "Charity Charlie," so often does he participate in charity events.  Who could forget his sexy turn in Broadway Bares XX: Strip-opoly?  Or the related photo shoots?  Or his being named Mr. Broadway 2010 in last year's Broadway Beauty Pageant.  The guy has it all - talent, good looks and sincerity.

  2. Raellen,

  3. Saw him on the Tonys and he stole the number from Daniel. Whenever he was on the screen my eyes noticed him. And not just to look at - his dancing was fab!

    There was another grey suited chorus boy who got my heart pounding too. Reminded me a little of an even cuter (if possible) Guy Pierce.
