Broadway Boys: Mr. May 2011: Andrew Rannells

Mr. Broadway May 2011
Andrew Rannells

WHY HE'S MR. APRIL: Hello!  Starring in two of Broadway's smash hit musicals within a year is a huge achievement, and Andrew Rannells has done just that.  First, he played Bob Gaudio in Jersey Boys and now he is Elder Price in the the biggest, funniest hit Broadway has seen since the producers, The Book of Mormon.  Already a nominee for a few awards, I hope the Tony nominating committee sees fit to put Mr. Rannells on their list for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Musical.  A tough field, he already faces stiff competition from his co-star, Josh Gad.  Either way, Andrew Rannells has had a dream year in his career, with what may just be his star-making role.  Here's hoping he continues to light up the stage with his energy, passion, skill, and killer smile.

INFO:
  • Currently appearing in: The Book of Mormon as perfect, by-the-rules Elder Price, who learns the hard way that being so good doesn't give you the keys to the Kingdom.  Saddled with an impossibly uncouth, un-Mormon companion and an assignment in war-torn, AIDS ravaged Uganda, Price learns that, in fact, there is more of a price to pay on the road to salvation than mere "perfection."
  • Birthdate: 1975... which makes him 35 or 36...
  • Other Credits: Broadway: Link Larkin in Hairspray; Bob Gaudio in Jersey Boys.  Regional/Touring/Toronto: Give It Up! (Lysistrata Jones), Bob Gaudio in Jersey Boys. Other: Broadway Bares 2005; Voice Artist for several animated series and films.
