PlayBlog   EXCLUSIVE: Nathan Lane, T.R. Knight, Brian Yorkey and More Make Out 100 List
Out Magazine is gearing up for its annual Out 100 list, celebrating LGBT individuals who made headlines and contributed to positive messages within the gay community in 2010.

While the full list will be revealed Nov. 11, Out has shared with Playbill.com a selection of the honorees from the theatre community. They include Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal author Brian Yorkey, Tony Award-winning actor Nathan Lane (The Addams Family), Tony Award winner Levi Kreis (Million Dollar Quartet), Tony-winning director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal), T.R. Knight (A Life in the Theatre) and current Next to Normal cast member Kyle Dean Massey.

Prior to Nov. 11, Out will also release the name of an Out 100 honoree each day. On Nov. 3 it was revealed that “Glee” cast member Chris Colfer has made the 2010 list. Also listed are The Scissor Sisters (front man Jason Sellards is at work on the new musical Tales of the City).

According to Out, "The theme of the 2010 Out 100 portfolio is 'celebration.' In a year marked by battles won and lost, high hopes and bitter letdowns, we thought it important to focus on events that might not have been celebrations when they happened, but were pivotal in the evolution of the LGBT cause. So, we asked our honorees to recreate three such moments in recent history — Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball shot by legendary photographer Larry Fink, the Stonewall riots shot by Out 100 veteran Roger Erickson, and Studio 54 shot by Jason Schmidt."

Here’s a look at the theatre-related Out 100 images. Check out Out100.com for more details.
