‪Hayley Goldstein: Benjamin Walker in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. His performance was (to me) incredible among my absolute favorites ever. Heck, the entire show should have had more love, especially Alex Timbers' brilliant direction. (Alex Timbers is my favorite director working today.) If only The Book of Mormon came out a year later or earlier, maybe my favorite non-Sondheim musical of all time would have had a chance.

Walker was most recently seen in the 2013 Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  Broadway credits include Bloody Bloody Andrew JacksonLes Liaisons Dangereuses and Inherit the Wind
