Aaron Tveit


Aaron Tveit

Following his success in the film adaptation of Les Misérables and his sold-out concert engagement at 54 Below, fans have been longing for Tveit, who starred onstage in Next to Normal and Catch Me If You Can, to return to Broadway. We think the role of moody teenager-turned-hero Max is just the part for him.

Bobby Steggert

Tony nominee Steggert, who has received acclaim for his roles as earnest and angsty young men in Ragtime, A Minister's Wife and Giant, is currently starring in Big Fish on Broadway. We think he could easily portray fish-out-of-water Max, who is homesick and lonely before he finds himself fighting magic.
