The Baritone voice in song is my favorite sound on earth or in the heavens. Check out Broadway leading man Brian Stokes Mitchell's stunning baritone on his self titled album from 2006. Perfection. He produced & did the arrangments!
Mitchell is that rare commodity, a really masculine musical theatre leading man in the mode of Richard Kiley, John Raitt, or Alfred Drake. He is a 5 time Tony Nomineee & winner for Kiss Me Kate. I loved him as Frasier Crane's nemesis & neighbor on Frasier. Other credits: George Gershwin's Oh, Kay!, Jelly's Last Jam, Kiss Of The Spider Woman, Ragtime, King Hedley II & Man of La Mancha . This season he appeared in th new musical Woman On The Edge Of A Nervous Breakdown, for which he one a Drama Desk award. Mitchell also appeared in the City Center Encores! productions of Jule Styne's Do Re Mi, Bob Merrill's Carnival!, & Kismet ,& the title role in th Kennedy Center revival of Sweeney Todd, part of Stephen Sondheim's 70th birthday celebration.
I am sorry to bring it down to this level, as always, but OMG!, isn't he just too yummy?
