Check out two images from an NBCUniversal advertising campaign in the gallery.
The first film still from Aaron’s upcoming romantic-comedy, Stereotypically You, has been released via the movie’s Facebook page. Aaron Tveit is featured in the still, along with his co-star Abby Elliott. The photo has been added to the gallery — which, by the way, has recently hit over two million views!
Stereotypically You is directed by Benjamin Cox and does not yet have a release date… but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to see it very soon. In fact, they are having screenings in Austin, TX and Dallas, TX on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. They’re also interested in hearing where else they should test screen the movie, so feel free to hop on over to their FB page and leave suggestions.

Last night (December 1st), the Menier Chocolate Factory in London held its press night for Jamie Lloyd’s Assassins. Aaron Tveit stars in this revival of the Stephen Sondhein/John Weidman musical, portraying Abraham Lincoln murderer John Wilkes Booth. Photos from the press night after-party have been added to the gallery, with hopefully more to come. You can also view many more images from the evening at Dan Wooller’s site.
The Twitter buzz over this “audacious” revival of Assassins has been incredibly positive since previews started back in November, so it’s no surprise official reviews have been raving as well. ATN has featured the Aaron-specific praise on the Assassins page; you can also read some highlights regarding Aaron’s performance below, from three separate five-star reviews:
“Aaron Tveit is both elegant and provocative as John Wilkes Booth.”
— LONDON EVENING STANDARD
“It is interesting… how Sondheim ennobles the beliefs of the original assassin John Wilkes Booth, he of Abraham Lincoln fame – a marvellous performance from Aaron Tveit – in the glorious ‘aria’ section of ‘The Ballad of Booth,’ and how ‘Another National Anthem’ for those who have slipped through the cracks conveys both anger and fervour.”
— THE ARTS DESK
“[T]hree characters stand out at the front – Broadway import Aaron Tveit as John Wilkes Booth, Jamie Parker as a folk balladeer who becomes Lee Harvey Oswald, and Simon Lipkin as the clown-faced fairground proprietor. The recurring presence of each – sternly principled, lyrical and haunted, by turns – brings this show into a fierce focus that is rarely experienced.”
— THE STAGE
While one solo shot debuted a few days ago, there are now several other production photographs from the Menier Chocolate Factory’s Assassins. You can see some of director Jamie Lloyd’s vision shine through in these group images, where we get our first views of Aaron Tveit’s castmates in costume. As an even bigger treat: these three new pictures are HQ!
A couple of killers sat by my feet; a few more were scattered among the audience at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
I am referring (luckily) to the bad guys from Assassins: the musical about nine of the 13 people who have taken aim and fired at a U.S. president.
I saw the musical, created by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, on Saturday — which happened to be the 51st anniversary of the day John F. Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas. Weidman was also at the Chocolate Factory and he lauded director Jamie Lloyd’s sublime, potent production.
“It’s unlike any I have seen before,” he enthused, adding that Lloyd had used the Menier’s space brilliantly. The cast is superb, including the nine “mutant X-Men” (as Lloyd has referred to them): Carly Bawden, Stewart Clarke, Mike McShane, Harry Morrison, Andy Nyman, Jamie Parker, David Roberts, Catherine Tate, and Aaron Tveit — with Simon Lipkin as the proprietor who aided and abetted the villains.
Menier artistic director David Babani said he hoped Sondheim would be at the official first night on Monday. If not, he’ll catch it later in the run.

Official rehearsal photos from Assassins have been released, showing a sneak peek of the cast from the upcoming Menier Chocolate Factory’s production in action. In all the photos, we see Aaron Tveit – who plays John Wilkes Booth – appropriately wielding a gun. His co-star and fellow lead Catherine Tate is also pictured in the full set of pictures, available courtesy of West End Frame.
Four HQ photos of Aaron have been added to the gallery. Previews for Assassins begin November 21st; tickets are still available at Menier’s website.
Last night (September 29th), Aaron Tveit joined other artists at the “Sundance…Sings!” concert, hosted by New York’s Symphony Space. The event celebrated composers and lyricists who have spent time at the Sundance Institute Theatre Lab, a developmental retreat founded by Robert Redford that aids in the creation of new work; an array of talent helped showcase the music and songs of productions such as Spring Awakening and Grey Gardens.
At the event, Aaron Tveit performed “Poison in My Pocket” from the 2014 Tony Award: Best Musical winner, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder. For that performance, he was joined with Catherine Walker (who will soon be playing Phoebe D’Ysquith on the Broadway production of Gentleman’s Guide) and Tony winner Shuler Hensley. As a solo act, Aaron delivered a beautiful rendition of “Love to Me” from The Light in the Piazza. Visit Symphony Space’s website for a full program.
Photos from the evening have been added to the gallery, including Aaron singing his two numbers as well as a backstage shot with the whole ensemble.
The final episode of “Graceland” season two aired on Wednesday night, leaving audiences on the biggest cliffhanger yet. The breathtaking finale saw the various missions established by the Graceland household fall apart, causing unexpected carnage and chaos. Although a season three hasn’t been officially confirmed, do you have any predictions on where the show will go next? (Please be aware that comments will likely have spoilers — read at your own discretion.)
Additionally, Zap2it recently spoke to Aaron Tveit about his character, Mike Warren, and the arc he faced throughout season two. There’s also some personal predictions and hopes from Aaron about season three that’s worth checking out. An excerpt is provided below, but please visit the source for the full article.
“It’s been so much fun for me to see the student become the teacher, but really this idealist becomes a cynic. To do good undercover work and to get things done you do have to compromise things,” Tveit says of Mike’s character arc this season. “Mike was just doing his job and in my opinion, doing a great job. The fact that other people were personally caught up in his wake — that wasn’t his concern.”

ATN is playing catch-up yet again: I’ve just added over 450 HD screen caps from last week’s episode of “Graceland,” the penultimate ep of season two. Entitled “Echoes,” we saw some past choices of the characters continue to haunt them — from bruises to incriminating evidence. After engaging in a scuffle with Sid, Mike asks Briggs for advice, including what happens if he doesn’t catch the bad guy. “Maybe that’s where atonement comes in,” Briggs suggests, although Mike states simply that he’s “not interested in atonement.” If you haven’t yet watched the finale: any final predictions?
