In case you missed it, Aaron Tveit appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” last night, May 29th. Hosted by Andy Cohen, Aaron was paired up with Ethan Hawk and entertained various questions – some a little racy, others about favorite planets – while having a drink or two. He also showed off his unique talent of clapping with one hand. You can check out some photos in the gallery along with various clips from the episode and after-show below.

“Aaron Tveit Charts His Musical Path To Stardom”

May 21, 2013 • Category: General News, Graceland, In Concert 1

ETonline has just posted a new interview featuring Aaron Tveit talking about his 54 Below experience and his upcoming USA Network series, “Graceland.” We get a little more insight into his song selection process – he admits having “probably… 30 to 40 songs” on his set list at one point – and his show-stopping cover of Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Check out an excerpt below before heading to the source for the whole interview.

ETonline: “Graceland” is arguably your most high profile gig to date. How conscious are you of the fact that fans are going to want to start seeing those heretofore unseen sides of you?
I am aware, but it’s really no different from my standpoint. I’ve been a little more self-protective in public over the last few months because, on the heels of Les Mis, I’ve been getting recognized more in public. But New York City is still a very anonymous city. People just go about their business. I feel like I’ve been dealing with that building over the years because of the Broadway community, so I’m treating it in the same way — I’ve always tried to keep my personal life private. I didn’t get into this business for notoriety or fame. I don’t go to places to be seen and that’s not going to change. Yes, this show will have a broader scope, but I don’t think it’s going to change that much. You just have to be aware of it, and if you want to keep certain things private, there are choices you can make to do that.

How sweet it is! On May 17th, the cast of “Graceland” stopped by 54 Below to give their co-star, Aaron Tveit, a little love and support. Vanessa Ferlito, Serinda Swan, Daniel Sunjata, Brandon Jay McLaren, and Manny Montana were all in attendance — and, according to reports, seemed to really get into his live performance (like holding lighters in the air during Aaron’s cover of Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”). Pictures from the evening have been added to the gallery, with guest appearances by Jeremy Woodard and Cameron Adams.

“We got to bring a lot of ourselves to the characters,” says Aaron of “Graceland”

May 18, 2013 • Category: General News, Graceland, Television News 0

CableFAX has a new interview up featuring Aaron Tveit. While at the USA Upfronts, they asked him about – what else? – USA Network’s new series, “Graceland,” which just so happens to star Aaron. It’s a short but sweet interview, which you can read an excerpt of below before heading to the source. I wasn’t aware of Jeff Eastin’s policy of allowing actors to go off-script, but it seems like his casts always have such great chemistry together that it makes perfect sense!

How much interaction did the network have with the show?
Obviously they were seeing and watching everything, but they kind of just let us do our thing. It didn’t feel like they were micromanaging. Of course, they were doing their job and [we were] getting network notes and the script had changes, but on set they weren’t really putting pressure on us. They trusted everyone. Also, Jeff Easton, the writer/creator of “White Collar,” told me this from day one: he’s very open to us changing our lines. We don’t have to stick to what’s on the page. There’s very much a sense of – in a lot of the group scenes especially – that we really got to bring a lot of ourselves to the characters. It didn’t feel like they were lurking over us. We knew that they were there supporting us, but we got to really do our thing and be left alone.

Earlier today, May 16th, Aaron Tveit hit the blue carpet for the 2013 USA Network Upfronts. Held at Pier 36 in New York, he mingled with other USA stars – including Matt Bomer of Jeff Eastin’s other series, “White Collar” – and helped promote his upcoming show, “Graceland.” It was a warm day, but Aaron looked absolutely smashing in a burgundy suit. A few red carpet and after-party pictures have been added to the gallery, with hopefully more to come.

It’s springtime, which means that the Broadway Show League is back! The annual event is something that Aaron Tveit has been involved with for many years now, allowing him to live out some of his baseball dreams — albeit on a smaller scale. Competing against fellow Broadway stars, he has once again joined team Rock of Ages. On Thursday, April 18th, they duked it out against Kinky Boots (although I’m not sure what the total score was).

Some more details on the BSL can be read below. Be sure to head to their website for further information.

Fans can catch Aaron playing softball at Heckscher Fields for team Rock of Ages. If you’re in New York, stop by Central Park to watch the games; they start at 11:30am. For more information, check out The Broadway Show League.

‘Jekyll & Hyde’ Broadway Opening Night

April 19, 2013 • Category: Gallery, General News, Public Appearances 1

Yesterday evening (April 18th), Aaron Tveit attended the Jekyll & Hyde opening night on Broadway. The event also brought Megan Hilty, Steve Kazee, and Jerry Mitchell (choreographer of Catch Me If You Can) to the Marquis Theatre. Seeing this incarnation of the musical thriller might have brought back some nostalgic feelings for Aaron: Jekyll & Hyde was actually the first musical he saw on Broadway! I’m adding pictures to the gallery as they become available, though I hope to soon replace them with HQ versions.
