I have been looking for a reason to select this guy for Broadway Boys honors, and an announcement earlier this past month made it go from an idea to a reality.
Just this past week, Mr. August 2010 took over a leading role in the off-Broadway comedy, My Big Gay Italian Wedding. But he does have one Broadway credit, making him eligible - he was a long-running Fender in Hairspray. National audiences may know him from the feature film The Big Gay Musical or from his starring as Will Parker in the First National Tour of the revival of Oklahoma! Most recently, though, Broadway audiences have watched him strut his stuff (with most of it showing!) in the recent editions of Broadway Bares.
Seeking a fully-rounded career in entertainment, not onlky does this Broadway boy do stage, film and burlesque, he also directs his own film projects. Currently,he is at work on a documentary about Broadway Bares and its 20 editions. An associate of Jerry Mitchell, he has been active in the creation, direction and implementation of several editions of the popular show, and seems a natural for collaborating on this documentary with Mr. Mitchell. As with everything "Bares," all proceeds will go to charity, and they a currently seeking donations to complete the film in time for release by next year's show. At the end of this blog, there are a few links to related sites where you can find out more about the guy, his project and Broadway Bares. And of course, you can always go enjoy him in My Big Gay Italian Wedding.
And so here he is, boys and girls... Mr. August 2010.... Daniel Robinson!
