I understand the idea of Billy in that track. However Andre is the bass in the show. And he is also the dancing male track. It is most curious that none of the crop of musical theatre stars have played any of these roles on their way up. Not Brian Stokes Mitchell or Norm Lewis. The closest we have had was the production at Bucks County a few years ago that featured Darius and Aisha De Haas and Brandi Chavonne Massey (who was also in one of the productions I MD’d this year...but curiously in an entirely different role). It isn’t that the talent isn’t there to do the show it is that the star roles of the current age ask for wildly different skills than the five parts in Ain’t Misbehaving.
