It has been exclusively confirmed to ATF that Aaron Tveit will take on the role of Dimitri in the upcoming 29-hour reading of Anastasia – A New Musical. Loosely based on the 1997 motion picture from Fox Animation Studios, the musical-drama borrows from the urban legend that Nicholas II’s youngest daughter, Anastasia, survived the execution of her Russian royal family.
Dimitri is a young and handsome conman seeking an Anastasia lookalike for a ten million ruble reward.
The new musical will feature songs from the film, potentially including the Oscar-nominated “Journey to the Past.” Fifteen original songs written for the stage production are being composed by creative team Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens.
Terrence McNally – whom Aaron worked with on Catch Me If You Can – is writing the libretto.
As previously announced on BroadwayWorld.com, Angela Lansbury will reprise her role as the Dowager Empress Marie from the film. Aaron Lazar is also attached to the reading. There’s no word yet on who will play the title character, but an announcement can be expected soon.
Almost one week ago, on June 7th, Aaron Tveit played ball yet again for BSL’s summer games. Rock of Ages competed against How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, winning with an amazing score: 15-0! Like last week, there aren’t too many pictures, but the few available have been added to the gallery.
Aaron Tveit is back in the game: on May 31st, he was at Central Park to play softball with team Rock of Ages. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many pictures from the day. On the plus side, however, RoA did defeat Death Of A Salesman/Once with the final score 2-7. Congratulations yet again!
It’s been a week full of trailers and insight into future projects featuring Aaron Tveit. Yesterday, a new trailer for Premium Rush – starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt – was released online. Yet again, there’s no look at Aaron in his role as Kyle, but the footage itself is action-packed and full of adrenaline from start to finish. Check it out before penciling the movie onto your schedule; it hits theaters August 24th.
The first teaser trailer for Les Miserables is now online! Anne Hathaway’s raw and haunting rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” is overlaid on top of various scenes from the Tom Hooper-directed musical, with the trailer hinting towards gorgeous choreography and plenty of poignant moments. There isn’t much of Aaron Tveit as Enjolras other than a quick group shot, but fans won’t want to miss the first look at the film regardless. It looks positively amazing.
USA Network recently held their 2012 Upfronts, in which they talked about returning series and upcoming programming. Among the latter was “Graceland,” the pilot Aaron Tveit shot earlier this year, created and written by Jeff Eastin (of “White Collar” fame). “White Collar” co-stars Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay introduced the new series, which was then followed by a trailer.
You can catch the first look at “Graceland” around the 45:45 mark — and there’s a lot of Aaron! In fact, it looks like the series would largely focus on his character. No word yet on whether or not the show has officially been picked up by USA. Screen caps have been added to the gallery. (Many thanks to Kelly at Matt Bomer Fan for the video, which you can also watch here.)
Aaron took a break from Les Mis duties to fly back to New York and participate in the annual Broadway Show League! Although he isn’t performing on Broadway this season, he has joined the Rock of Ages team. (If you remember last year’s games, ROA competed against Catch Me If You Can for the title.) The game took place on Thursday, April 26th, with ROA scoring an impressive 18-3 win over Newsies. Photos from the event have been added to the gallery.
In case you aren’t aware, the BSL happens every year at Central Park. Numerous cast and crew from current Broadway productions join together over the summer season to play softball, which anyone can watch from the sidelines. If you’re interested in catching a game, check out the schedule at BSL’s official site and head over to Heckscher Ballfields for some ball. Aaron will be playing on Team Rock of Ages again starting in June.
ATF has a strict policy on not posting non-set related candids, but Aaron Tveit couldn’t be any more in character in these new pictures. This is our first look at Tom Hooper’s vision of Enjolras in the upcoming Les Miserables! Bearing a modified but no less impressive version of the iconic red waistcoat, he stands on (presumably) Lamarque’s hearse with revolutionary red flag in hand. At his side is Eddie Redmayne, playing Marius in the film. You can also some clips of the filming below:
Daniel Sunjata – Aaron Tveit’s co-star in the upcoming Jeff Eastin series, “Graceland” – tweeted some interesting pictures earlier today. In the first, he mentioned that Aaron was with the pilot’s director (Russell Fines) at the house the television series would be based in. Look at that view, overlooking the Pacific! Along with the second picture, Daniel tweeted “rehearsal again.” With this information, can we assume that the new show will start filming soon — perhaps before Aaron returns to the UK to shoot Les Mis? We’ll see!
