2013 Recording Academy Honors

June 26, 2013 • Category: Gallery, General News, Public Appearances 2

Last night (June 25th), Aaron Tveit attended the 2013 Recording Academy Honors to pay tribute to Les Misérables creators, Alain Boublil, Herbert Kretzmer, and Claude-Michel Schönberg. Aaron introduced the three men behind the formation of the musical, while his onscreen co-star from the film adaptation, Samantha Barks (aka Eponine), performed at the event. A few images from the evening – including some nice shots of Aaron in a snazzy three-piece suit – have been added to the gallery.

  1. Reading about Aaron Tveit honoring the creators of Les Miserables, I thought back to their other hit, Miss Saigon which I saw early in its Broadway run. With his recent buzz cut, AT looks to me to be a rugged young American Marine which the romantic lead (Chris) in MS is. If my hazy memory (it was a long time ago) is correct, Chris’s songs are mainly ballads which Tveit is particularly talented at interpreting (ex. Runaway with Me on Youtube). Interestingly, Steven Pasquale who I understand was an excellent Chris in the late 90’s acted alongside Daniel Sunjata for years in the series “Rescue Me.” Good Omen?

    Fingers crossed that if or when a Miss Saigon film becomes a reality (and there has been talk) that the powers that be decree Aaron Tveit be the cinematic Chris. Or with a new staging of MS in London in September maybe he could cross the pond to play the role for a few weeks. I know that’s heavy-lifting for a short term gig — just a thought. As a fan I only have the power to imagine and dream cast.

  2. Since seeing Aaron in Les Mis, I’ve told everybody I know how great he would be as Chris in Miss Saigon! So I agree with you completly.
    Think lots of tissues would be needed, seeing him sing ‘Why God’ .

    And I will keep my fingers crossed with you for him to do Chris in the West End! Atleast his fans on this side of the Atlantic would be able to see him on stage then too! It may stay only a dream, but one can dream, right!
