On Monday, April 28th, Aaron Tveit made his Carnegie Hall debut! As part of the New York Pops 31st birthday gala, he joined other Broadway veterans – including Patti LuPone and Jane Krakowski – to help celebrate Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, writers of musicals such as Hairspray and Catch Me If You Can.

As the originator of the role Frank Abignale Jr. in Catch Me, Aaron was on hand to perform the show-stopping number, “Goodbye.” His co-stars from that production, Linda Hart and Kerry Butler, were also in attendance. Both women were involved with Hairspray as well, of which the original cast was reunited to perform at the gala. At the end of the evening, everyone joined together to dance and sing along to the infectious “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”

Photos from the gala have been added to the gallery, including Aaron’s red carpet arrival and performance. There are also after party pictures available featuring him mingling with the likes of Matthew Morrison, Christian Borle, Nathan Lane, and Kerry Butler herself.

2013 Tough Mudder

November 6, 2013 • Category: ATN Exclusive, Gallery, General News 2

This past weekend, Aaron Tveit competed in the annual event, Tough Mudder, in Charlotte, North Carolina. More than a marathon, Tough Mudder is an intensive obstacle course that tests “strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.” Some of the obstacles include scaling rope walls and crawling through mud, but there are even more hardcore expectations like dealing with ice water, fire, and even 10,000 volts of electricity. Check out a PDF of Charlotte’s course; if you want detailed descriptions (and picutres) of the obstacles, head over here.

ATN is happy to provide two pictures of Aaron from the event. The first is before the race, while the second features him with his friend and teammate after completing the obstacle course. Congrats, Aaron!

Although Tough Mudder is an extreme challenge, the event is overall a positive experience and a great way to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project, an organization that aids wounded post-9/11 veterans. If you’re curious about competing, you can check out Tough Mudder’s official site and registration page; however, be aware of how much physical strength and endurance you’ll need and approach the challenge responsibly (i.e. with training).

Aaron to Bartend for 2013’s “Stockings with Care” Benefit

November 5, 2013 • Category: General News 2

T’is the season to be jolly — and giving! Aaron Tveit is confirmed to appear (and bartend) at the 2013 Stockings With Care benefit. As part of the Celebrity Bartending Night, he’ll serve patrons drinks and raise money for the non-profit organization in the process. The event is to be held in two weeks – on Tuesday, November 19th (from 7-11 PM) – at the Hudson Station Bar and Grill in New York. A silent auction and raffle is also being held.

You can purchase tickets at the door for a $30 cover charge, or in advance (for a discounted rate of $20) by visiting http://celebritybartending.brownpapertickets.com. If you attend, be sure to tip generously: all tips made throughout the night are given to the charity as part of the 2013 Holiday Drive.

Other New York-bases television and theater celebrities scheduled to be part of the event include Jesse L. Martin, Danny Pino, Steve Schirripa, Carrie Preston, Phil Burke, Michael Kelly, with more to be announced.

Stockings With Care (SWC) is an annual event that anonymously grants the holiday wishes of homeless or near-homeless families. Over 1,500 children were surprised with their own Christmas miracle last year, receiving gifts from individual donors (“Santas”), corporations, and volunteers who purchase and wrap donations based on actual wish lists. This year is SWC’s 20th anniversary; to date, over 40,000 children have benefitted from hard work and support to those in need. Casting director Rosalie Joseph and producer Tom Fontana are the founders.

If you’d like to sign up to be a “Santa,” visit Stockings With Care’s official site.

Canon’s Project Imaginat10n Film Festival

Aaron Tveit attended Canon’s Project Imaginat10n earlier this evening (October 24th), an experimental and unique film festival featuring celebrity directors alongside five contest winners. Project Imaginat10n posed a challenge to aspiring filmmakers, in which directors were asked to find inspiration and create a story from ten photographs. Each of the images represented a certain theme to incorporate in the final work: mood, goal, backstory, character, obstacle, relationship, setting, the unknown, time, and discovery. You can view all the photos here.

Among the five winners selected by Ron Howard (and daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard), five celebrity directors – Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, Biz Stone, James Murphy, and Georgina Chapman – also participated in the event. As previously reported, Aaron was involved in Chapman’s directorial debut, entitled A Dream Of Flying (and written by Neil Gaiman). You can now find more information on the film at Canon’s website, including a summary and the ten photos that inspired Chapman. You can also watch the short film in its entirety (16 minutes) below.

Happy 30th Birthday, Aaron!

October 21, 2013 • Category: ATN Exclusive, General News, Site News 515

Happy Birthday, Aaron! Welcome to a whole new decade. Despite Joey’s reaction above, they say actors start getting offered the really interesting parts in their thirties. And judging by your most recent role – in Big Sky – it seems like that ol’ saying might be true already. It’s been incredibly exciting to watch the trajectory of your career in the past year alone, and I cannot wait to see what else is in store for you professionally. I think I speak for all your fans when I say that it’s wonderful being a fan of an actor who loves to try new mediums, genres, characters, stories; someone who isn’t afraid of being daring and exploring his potential. Even better is when success follows truly kind-yet-talented folk, such as yourself. Here’s to you and your unbridled bravado, especially as you explore your thirties. May you have a very happy and fulfilling year.

It’s been crazy watching this website – and, therefore, your fan base – grow within a year. There are over 500 amazing birthday messages (and some photographic gifts) waiting for you in the comments. From all around the world, fans have shared inspiring stories while wishing you the happiest of birthdays. You’re an amazing aspiration to many; hopefully that knowledge in itself is a great present to have on this day. Enjoy!
