Since his Broadway debut as the first replacement Roger in Rent, Norbert Leo Butz has been raising the roof—and the bar—on stage. Both a legitimate actor and a consummate showman, Butz is incredibly versatile. With his appealing, regular-guy good looks and masculine presence, he's been an asset to a wide range of shows—from the original production of Jason Robert Brown's heartbreaking song cycle The Last Five Years, to Second Stage's revival of Paula Vogel's disturbingly cozy memory play How I Learned To Drive. Especially beloved in musicals (where he's won two Tonys for his work in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Catch Me If You Can), Butz sings expressively with a warm, clear rock n' roll voice that you want to listen to again and again.

What follows is a retrospective of Butz's career thus far on disc.
