Congrats To My Favorite Mute

I must say congratulations to the very talented, and very cute, Nick Spangler of The Fantasticks! Nick has been awarded the Theater Hall of Fame's 2008 Elaine and Jerry Orbach Musical Theater Fellowship, created by the Theater Hall of Fame in 2004 to provide an avenue to recognize and provide financial assistance to emerging theater artists and to encourage possible future Hall of Famers. He was selected by Cancilla-Orbach, Jerry's wife, who said, "I hope that this role and this award help Nick to parallel Jerry's career. The Fantasticks bounced Jerry to fame. Hopefully the same will happen for Nick."

Nick is currently playing Matt (a.k.a. "the Boy") in The Fantasticks, but when I saw it he played "the Mute." And, it was a brilliant show!

For you people who have not yet seen it, you're in luck. It has returned to the Snapple Theater after a short hiatus, and you can buy tickets by visiting www.fantasticksonbroadway.com.
