A favorite scene stealer and replacement lead for years, Christian Borle surprised no one when he bit into the leading role of Black Stashe in Peter and the Starcatcher with aplomb, winning the Tony the same season he was delighting Broadway fans as the composer Tom on TV's "Smash." Borle is "Saturday Night Live" funny — truly original and inspired — and he offers song and dance talents that would have made him a star in another era and is rare indeed today.
