Jose Llana is another great leading man who's been capturing the hearts of Broadway audiences for years without being nominated (yet) for a Tony Award. Since his angelically sung debut as Lun Tha in the 1996 revival of The King and I, Llana has brought a simple humanity as well as a romantic flair to a gamut of characters and scenarios ranging from Flower Drum Song to The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee to his recent turn as Ferdinand Marcos in Here Lies Love.
