Star-To-Be: Piazza's James D. Gish

Piazza's James D. Gish 

It has been weeks since we basked in the theatrical glow that was Encores' The Light in the Piazza and the stunning performances of Ruthie Ann Miles and company. But it hasn't been far from our minds since. One of the many reasons why it continues to resonate was the utterly charming turn by James D. Gish as Fabrizio. By intermission, we just knew this guy is a Star-To-Be, and not just because of those matinee idol looks, either.



Sure he has a Broadway credit (as one of a long line of Fiyeros in Wicked), a couple of National Tours (Beautiful and Les Miserables) under his belt, and an impressive resume of regional roles. He also has a great career as a vocalist and voice over artist. Gish is also a graduate of ASU's Barrett Honors College with a B.S. in Business Administration (it's good to get an education). With his face on a Hershey bar, maybe he's already a star?

Jersey Boys (2nd from left); Newsies;
Bullets Over Broadway (center); The Toxic Avenger

What we see, though, is a future where he is a real above-the-title ticket draw on the Great Bright Way and beyond.
