A new interview featuring Aaron Tveit, conducted by Broadway Channel, has surfaced. In it, he talks about Catch Me If You Can, including how nostalgic it is as a production while simultaneously modern in its delivery. At about one minute, it’s a very short interview, but definitely worth checking out. I’ve also added HQ screen caps to the Gallery.
This news is a couple of days old now, but I debated posting about it as I don’t believe any of the videos are professionally shot. That said, Aaron Tveit – along with Tom Wopat and Kerry Butler – performed at Macy’s Herald Square on Thursday, June 2nd. It was part of a campaign to get shoppers in the store: the first 25 to spend $200 in the men’s department received tickets to see Catch Me If You Can. Aaron sang “Goodbye” from the musical, and you can check out footage of the performance above. There are also a couple of other videos, which you can see here (check out Kerry swaying in the background!) and here.
Aaron Tveit just isn’t getting enough softball in his life. Although he’s playing the game as part of the Broadway Show League every Thursday, he’s just been added to the list of Broadway stars competing in this year’s Bombers Boomer Broadway Softball Classic. The events – hosted at the Yankee Stadium – will take place Monday, June 27th, and will air locally in New York. (Let’s hope we get some footage, though!)
Other plays include Aaron’s cast-mate in Catch Me If You Can, Tom Wopat, along with The House of Blue Leaves’ Edie Falco. They’ll be participating in a seven-inning game at 11 am that Monday. Additionally, Aaron will be singing the national anthem before taking the field. For more information, including air times, check out Playbill.com.
This month’s issue of IN New York has a special star on the cover: Aaron Tveit! He talks a bit about his history in musicals, performing at the Tonys, being overwhelmed by certain stars who come see his show, and why New York is his favorite city. You can check out the issue on their website here, directly view the scans (above, in the Gallery), or simply read the interview in ATF’s Press Archive.
Here’s an interesting treat from the Sirius interview that aired a few days ago: Aaron Tveit singing “Seven Wonders” solo! It’s from the “Getting Sirius With Seth” radio show, in which Aaron – along with the composers of Catch Me If You Can – sat down and spoke with Seth Rudetsky. (You might remember this post.) You can also check out Aaron singing “Goodbye” (the entire song this time) from the same show here.
Yesterday, May 29th, two celebs decided to check out Broadway’s Catch Me If You Can — including Tom Hanks! He stopped by to show his support and later Tweeted about the show, saying, “Key players in B’way CatchMeIfUCan. Don’t miss it. NL Butz and Aaron Tveit are 4-Star great!” Vanessa Hudgens – Aaron Tveit’s co-star in the Hollywood Bowl production of RENT last year – was there as well.
The Press Archive is now open for fans to peruse. You can find a selection of articles and interviews featuring Aaron Tveit over the years. If you know of any that haven’t yet been added, feel free to forward them over as I most likely haven’t seen them yet.
Additionally, Aaron Tveit Fan is looking to add more content on the site. While I’ll be working on bulking up the Gallery some more, I really need your help to beef up the Extras section. I’m looking for animations/.gifs, avatars and icons, desktop wallpapers, and fan art (no fan fiction) to host. You’ll receive full credit under your name and a link to your e-mail/website, if you so choose. I’ll also accept trivia submissions for the Facts & Trivia section, and I welcome you to send me your favorite quote either said from or about Aaron. (I won’t be crediting for these things. However, once again, if you create something original, you will receive credit.)
The Gallery was already pretty full when Aaron Tveit Fan was opened, but I’ve done some recent additions so you might want to look around. Most notably, I’ve just uploaded screen caps from Aaron’s appearance on “Law & Order: SVU,” in which he played an alarmingly sweet and sensitive boyfriend. Many, many thanks to the wonderful Jess at Mariska Online for the caps, since my program refused to cooperate. Enjoy!
