Thursday Morning Man: Aaron Lazar!

Aaron Lazar has one of the most diverse careers of any young leading man.

He has starred on Broadway 10 times, from his debut in The Phantom of the Opera to Mamma Mia! and Les Misérables to his most recent work in the Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen.

He has worked alongside some of Broadway’s best including: Bernadette Peters, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Angela Lansbury and the late Elaine Stritch (A Little Night Music); Jeremy Irons, Joan Allen and Marsha Mason (Impressionism); Kelli O’Hara (The Light in the Piazza); and legendary creatives Bill Condon, Sting, James Lapine, Joe Mantello, Sir Trevor Nunn, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Stephen Sondheim.

He starred in A Tale of Two Cities in 2008 and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for the 2006 revival of Les Misérables. He replaced Matthew Morrisonas the lead in The Light in the Piazza, a role that he subsequently played in a PBS broadcast, and was also featured in the 2002 revival of Oklahoma and the long-running Phantom of the Opera.

Other credits include a non-musical role in Broadway’s Impressionism and appearing as a soloist with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, the Boston Pops, Marvin Hamlisch and the National Symphony Orchestra, and Peter Nero and the Philly Pops.

Aaron has made over a dozen guest star appearances for all the major TV networks, including NBC’s “The Blacklist,” CBS’s “Blue Bloods,” “The Good Wife,” and FOX’s “The Following.”

None of this would have been possible had Aaron, a graduate of Duke University, stuck to his original plans for medical school.

  1. Oh, yes, indeed!

  2. Patrick Wilson’s darker alter ego.
