I do adore him, but he wasn’t on my list.

You got them all right! I’m not sure I had Benanti on my list, but I decided to remove people who aren’t really known for Broadway to make this task surmountable.
I will say two of the actors left on my list only do plays, and one is female.
1. Raul Esparza
2. Ben Walker
3. Michael Esper
4. Gavin Creel
5. Aaron Tveit
6. Nina Arianda
7. Laura Benanti
I was going to rank them, but it felt really mean.
This video is actually pretty cool, but it reminds me of Justin Timberlake’s “TKO,” (down to the celebrity progeny costar) which is actually kind of a dumb video, but a WAY better song.

I totally saw this happen and I felt like I couldn’t tell anyone about it. Also it was like 9 am here. I want my phone ring to be Jamie Parker saying “Did I say you could speak?” in his posh accent.
I also always hear the lyric “gaga at the go-go” with Raúl’s enunciation. (Yes, today is Prep for HAIR at the Hollywood Bowl Day.)
This was the first version of this song that I ever heard and I always want to hear it sung with this much diva riffing and soul phrasing. I don’t care if it’s inappropriate for the character.
I haven’t made a list so basically I’ll just say yes to 10 actors and figure it out from there.
This was also going to be my method for playing this game. (The game is to guess my 10 favorite Broadway actors.)
You would think that Andrew Jackson was giving you his undivided attention, and then you would glance over and notice that he had devoted the last several minutes to making a laborious sketch of an alligator.
“Mr. President!” you would gasp, indignantly.
“I have a bullet lodged inside my body,” he would say. “From killing a man in a duel. A better man than you.” He would resume drawing the alligator.
HAIR at the Hollywood Bowl
This is a better video! I like when Ben jumps into Hunter’s arms.
