Broadway voices I want to marry

I guess I'm procrastinating some of my real reviews and indulging my fangirl obsessions here. It's the Monday after a hurricane, so cut me some slack.

Broadway voices I would hetero marry if I could, just so I could have them sing to me every day:***
* Skylar Astin
* Declan Bennett (
* Gerard Canonico
* Gavin Creel (
* Raúl Esparza (
* Michael Esper (
* Joshua Henry
* Christopher Jackson (
* Brian d'Arcy James (
* Morgan Karr (
* Justin Levine (
* Bryce Ryness (
* James Snyder (
* Aaron Tveit

Broadway voices I would gay marry if I could:
* Uzo Aduba
* Kate Baldwin (
* Laura Benanti (
* Heidi Blinkenstaff
* Andréa Burns (
* Rose Hemingway
* Arielle Jacobs (
* Rebecca Naomi Jones
* Kelli O'Hara (
* Christina Sajous
* Josefina Scaglione
* Elizabeth Stanley
* Alysha Umphress (
* (Holly Brook - not on Broadway yet, but she sang in the Whisper House musical at Powerhouse and at the Old Globe in San Diego, and I hope the show--with her in it--comes to NYC) (

Broadway married voices that I would travel back in time to double marry in Utah:
* Tony Vincent ( and Aspen Miller Vincent (

I know the list is heavy with people from Spring Awakening, American Idiot, and In the Heights. I think that's a large part of why I kept going back to those shows over and over, rather than the list being biased by my love for the shows, but a fangirl can't really be objective about such matters.

What do you think? Do you think some of my choices are crazy? Am I crazy for leaving off some of your favorites?

*** I don't want to marry the people. Some of them I probably wouldn't even enjoy talking to. But I am head-over-heels for their voices.


  1. This is a great list! I'd marry Audra McDonald but I think she's taken. :-(

  2. I'll probably be in love with Audra's voice too, but I haven't seen/heard her yet. Looking forward to Porgy & Bess at the end of September, though!
