January 5, 2015 • Category: Film News, Gallery, Stereotypically You 1

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.

‘Assassins’ Press Night + Official Reviews

December 2, 2014 • Category: Assassins, Gallery, General News, Public Appearances, Stage Work 0

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

Congratulations to the cast, crew, and creative on this wildly successful vision of Assassins!

First Production Photo from ‘Assassins’

November 28, 2014 • Category: Assassins, Gallery, Stage Work 0

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.

“I cannot begin to express my gratitude,” says Aaron

October 22, 2014 • Category: ATN Exclusive, Site News 7

Are Aaron Tveit’s fans the greatest, or what? From around the world, you guys came out by the hundreds to leave beautiful and inspiring birthday messages, proving how much of an impact Aaron has left globally — which is simply amazing!

I want to personally thank everyone who took some time out of their day to leave a message on the site. Like last year, they were forwarded to Aaron; and once again, he has sent ATN a letter to post on the site, expressing his gratitude to you, his faithful fans. Read his note exclusively here on ATN:

Hey everyone!!
Wow. You are all AWESOME
First I have to say thank you to Kristina for organizing this birthday message project once again!
And you guys..
I really don’t even know what to say. I am so moved and touched and humbled reading all of these messages. I usually just have my head down and go about my day and work, but to have a moment to hear from you all, and receive your birthday wishes and all the amazing things you have to say…
Really stops me in my tracks!
To read your letters, see your artwork, watch your videos, read your cards and collages and poems, and to think of the time and effort you all put in to get these in for MY birthday..
What a thing.
I cannot begin to express my gratitude.
Thank you. Thank you!
Aaron

Happy 31st Birthday, Aaron!

October 21, 2014 • Category: ATN Exclusive, General News 386

Happy Birthday, Aaron! For most people, it would be pretty tough to top a year when a street was named in their honor — but, let’s be honest, most people don’t have a Stephen Sondheim production in their pending repertoire. To jump into Assassins after a three-year hiatus from live theater is a marvelous introduction into 31, hopefully acting as an indicator of Things To Come in the next year. Especially after being further wowed by your portrayal of Mike Warren in season two of “Graceland,” I can say with certainty that those seeing you as John Wilkes Booth in the coming months are in for a treat; and even if they can’t make it to a show, your fans – the self-appointed Tveitor Tots – wait with baited breath for more professional endeavors on the distant horizon.

Speaking of your fans, they are a truly amazing bunch. Like last year, they’ve shared stories and posted beautiful birthday messages from around the globe — and hopefully they will serve as a perfect present to you. I hope your day is super fantastic and that you’ll once again enjoy the passionate support from your fans.
