Broadway Boys: Mr. June 2012: Ben Fankhauser


Mr. June 2012
Ben Fankhauser


WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: Ben Fankhauser is exactly the kind of guy that I originally wanted all of the Mr. Broadways to be: a new on the scene, up and coming star of the stage.  Well, you can't get much newer on-the-scene than this guy.  He is making his Broadway debut in one of the hottest musicals in years, Disney's Newsies, in which he plays Davey, a struggling new newsboy who rallies the guys to help their leader (Jeremy Jordan, Mr. October 2011) and his sidekick (Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Mr. April 2012) fight for their rights.  This guy has also raised his profile having appeared in several magazines in support of the show, and his dynamic personality landed him a gig co-hosting a behind-the-scenes video for Broadway.com.  With just one show under his belt, and his star on the rise, it is no wonder he's Mr. Broadway June 2012!

OTHER INFORMATION:

  • AGE: He is a mere 22 years old!
  • EDUCATION: Ithaca College, Class of 2011.  BFA in Musical Theatre.
  • WHERE ELSE YOU MIGHT HAVE SEEN HIM: Broadway: Disney's Newsies; Regional: Disney's Newsies (Paper Mill Playhouse); National Tour: The First National Tour of Spring Awakening (Ernst).
  • ON THE INTERNET: http://newsiesthemusical.com/
