Broadway Boys: Mr. July 2014: Curtis Holbrook

Mr. July 2014
Curtis Holbrook


WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: It's been an interesting month for one of my all-time favorite performers.  He's been co-starring with (as the Times Square billboard trumpets) "Broadway's Biggest Star," Idina Menzel in If/Then ever since Anthony Rapp was felled by an ACL injury.  But that is just the most recent event in what is shaping up to be a varied and lengthy career as a working actor.  After making his debut in Footloose, he went on to roles in Fosse and The Boy From Oz.  From then on, this dancer began creating roles (and increasingly larger ones at that) in such shows as Taboo, All Shook Up, and West Side Story.  He really grabbed the Broadway community's attention when he did a stint as Sonny in Xanadu (spelling Cheyenne Jackson).  Then, in prep for the National Tour of The Addams Family, he did a stint in the Broadway company.  And now, he's back doing a great job with the unenviable task of taking over for Ms. Menzel's RENT co-star. No wonder Curtis Holbrook is Mr. Broadway.
