15 Mar 2014 correspondent Ben Rimalower offers a collection of ten Broadway leading men who are overdue for a Tony nomination.


As I've mentioned before, my passion for Broadway revolves around the great ladies of our musical stage. I don't think I'm alone in this and, as society's idea of what makes a man a man changes over time, it becomes harder for us to articulate or even imagine the ideal leading man. An actor may score in a role, but what are the chances of him sustaining that kind of achievement over a body of work?

I've put together a list of an eclectic group of singing actors who have managed to successfully navigate the complex waters of today's musical theatre, but have not been nominated for a Tony Award — yet. Consequently, many of them have sought work in film and television and concerts. We need to entice them to stay on Broadway!

As with my list of Top Ten Up-and-Coming Musical Actresses, the list is presented in alphabetical order.
