Favorite Stage Actor of the Day: Charlie Sutton
One of my favorite numbers from this past years Broadway Bares was 'The Bank'. While Joshua Buscher got most of the attention, my eyes were firmly planted on one of the guys to his side, Broadway actor and dancer Charlie Sutton. I love Charlie's look with his dark wavy hair and intense eye stare during most of the number. Since you all know I don't think stage actors get nearly enough attention, I decided to find out more about Charlie.
Charlie Sutton grew up in Florida where his love of the stage came from his mother who also had a passion for dance. Getting his training at Miami's New World School of the Arts high school, after graduating in 2002, Charlie headed to New York to attend college.
Charlie's stage credits since hitting New York including dancing in La Cage aux Folles, Wicked and Aida. Charlie also gained attention working in the Broadway production of John Waters Cry Baby. Most recently Charlie shared the stage with Nathan Lane and the cast of The Addams Family. Also interested in fashion, Sutton has been spending time creating his own designs.
Some of Charlie's other credits include numberous music videos as well as a role in the movie The Producers.
