EXCLUSIVE: Joshua Henry, a Broadway star currently playing Sutton Foster’s love interest in Violet, has signed with UTA. One of the theater’s most sought-after young actors, Henry was a standout in Susan Stroman’s production of The Scottsboro Boys, a serious musical by John Kander and the late Fred Ebb. Henry earned Tony nominations for his performances in both shows. He also appeared in major roles in Diane Paulus’ production of Porgy And Bess and in Green Day’s American Idiot. He will continue to be managed by Station 3.
Producers of the Tony-winning revival of A Raisin In The Sun, starring Denzel Washington, said the show — the highest-grossing play on Broadway — has recouped. Though no figures were released, the New York Times put the price tag at $4.25 million. The production, staged by Tony winner Kenny Leon, began previews on March 8 at the Barrymore Theatre and shutters this weekend.
