The first set of promotional pictures for CBS’s “BrainDead” have just been released! Courtesy of Mashable, you can now find eight new photos in the gallery that feature the cast in front of an American flag and spraying bug repellent. Well, everyone has a can… except for Aaron Tveit’s character, Gareth. Anyone else concerned? Or do you think it was just a creative decision for the shoot? We may just have to wait to find out when “BrainDead” airs on June 13th.

“BrainDead” Teaser Trailer

May 10, 2016 • Category: BrainDead, Television News 0


Although there have been a couple other teaser trailers released for CBS’s upcoming comic-thriller “BrainDead,” the latest shows a bit more of Aaron Tveit. Playing the role of Gareth, we even get to see a hint of romance between his character and Laurel Healy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). As a teaser implies, the trailer is brief — so hopefully we’ll get a full-length trailer and even clips soon.

Second Stage 37th Anniversary Gala

After Aaron Tveit posted about a special rehearsal on Friday, fans were buzzing about a Next To Normal reunion that was to take place on May 2nd. As part of Second Stage’s 37th Anniversary Gala, N2N producer David Stone (who also handles Wicked) was to be honored. “[David] made Next To Normal possible with his belief in this show,” Aaron stated on Instagram.

Alongside Alice Ripley and J. Robert (“Bobby”) Spencer, Aaron joined the stage to revisit the powerful Next To Normal number, “You Don’t Know/I Am The One.” (Sadly, no video of this performance from the event has surfaced.) Original cast members Jennifer Damiano and Adam Chanler-Berat were also in attendance, happily joining for a N2N family reunion — minus Louis Hobson, who was notably missed by his co-stars.

Following a sold-out run in Washington D.C., the new musical Dear Evan Hansen had its off-Broadway opening at Second Stage theater on Sunday, May 1st. A day before his scheduled stint at the venue, Aaron Tveit appeared at the opening to lend his support. “What an incredibly beautiful, emotional show,” he stated on Instagram. “The cast is beyond stellar top to bottom.”

Directed by Next To Normal‘s Michael Greif with a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the production has been heralded by critics as being “entertainingly smart and radiating charm, wit, and humor.” It seems to be loved by audiences, too: the New York run is also sold out! However, Second Stage notes that a limited number of General Admission tickets – as well as tickets reserved for youths (at $30) – are available at the box office an hour before curtain. If you’re in the area, it might be worth stopping by to catch the original musical “for the outsider in us all.”

Revisiting “Seven Wonders”

April 27, 2016 • Category: General News 2

As part of a fundraiser to help Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Aaron Tveit showed up at the Disaster musical’s Disaster Relief event last night. As part of an ongoing series, artists are asked to perform onstage after the curtain call to raise money for BCEFA. Because Aaron’s former Catch Me If You Can co-star Kerry Butler is in Disaster, it’s no surprise that we got to see a reunion — and it was anything but disastrous. Together, they sang a beautiful duet – “Seven Wonders” – which was a staple song for their CMIYC characters, Frank and Brenda. Check out the video above.

MCC Theater Charitybuzz Auction

April 14, 2016 • Category: General News 1

In support of MCC Theater – which just hosted the 2016 Miscast gala – Charitybuzz held several live, online auctions that concluded earlier today. One of those auctions happened to be lunch with Aaron Tveit, where one lucky winner and a guest will be able to join Aaron (and his guest, casting director Bernie Telsey) for a private lunch date in New York City.

Although the estimated auction total for lunch with Aaron was originally set at $2000, the winning bid actually capped off at $10,250! His auction finished with the highest total, with the second-highest going to a Hamilton package (including two tickets to the show and a backstage tour by a cast member, which went for $4.5k). Overall, it sounds like the online event was a huge success. For those who contributed: thank you!

Just because you don’t have a few extra grand to bid on VIP lunches and tours doesn’t mean you can’t help benefit MCC Theater, an off-Broadway theater company that also offers free education programs. They are continually taking deductible donations, which can be set at any amount affordable to you. To donate, please visit MCC Theater’s website.

2016 Miscast

April 6, 2016 • Category: Gallery, General News, Public Appearances 1

On April 4th, MCC Theater hosted the 2016 Miscast gala, featuring numerous Broadway stars performing songs from roles in which they would never be cast. This year, Lea Salonga, Tina Fey, Tituss Burgess, and many others were in on hand to both woo and entertain those lucky enough to attend.

As previously announced, Aaron Tveit was also part of this year’s lineup, which marked his third Miscast appearance to date. This time, he performed a heart-wrenching rendition of “As Long As He Needs Me” from Oliver!; you can watch a professionally shot video of it on MCC Theater’s YouTube. His second song of the night – RENT‘s “Take Me Or Leave Me” – was a show-stopping duet with Gavin Creel. Paul Wontorek of Broadway.com reported that video of the performance had half a million views just one day after it was uploaded! Check it out below:

‘Stereotypically You’ is Not a “Paint-by-Numbers Rom-Com”

February 22, 2016 • Category: BrainDead, Grease: Live, Stereotypically You 1

While we wait for a release date for Stereotypically You, we can at least read Aaron Tveit’s thoughts on the upcoming romantic-comedy he stars in. Talking to Collider, he addresses what drew him to the role and why it isn’t like other rom-coms, including showing the process of love and discovery from a man’s perspective.

Although this interview primarily focuses on Stereotypically You, there’s also some chatter about Aaron’s new CBS show, “BrainDead,” as well as the incredibly successful presentation of Fox’s “Grease: Live.” Read an excerpt below before heading to the source for more.

This is not the kind of romantic comedy where everything is wrapped up neatly with a bow. Was that also appealing to you?
TVEIT:
Yeah, and I think that’s something Ben also really wanted to convey. Even though the film goes out of reality, the real reality of the movie is realistic. Things don’t always tie up in a nice bow. Even when you make strides with people and relationships, it’s complicated. Life doesn’t move in a linear fashion. Life makes lefts and rights, and it doubles back. What I also really liked about Ben’s script is that Charlie is okay, but he’s not riding off into the sunset with a new girl, which is another way that it doesn’t fall into cliche.
