Kelsey Grammer — Nominee for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical

Kelsey Grammer

Show:
La Cage aux Folles

Role:
Georges, the gay nightclub owner struggling to keep both his son and flamboyant life-partner happy as their family approaches a major milestone.

Bio Brief:
A five-time Emmy Award nominee (one for voicing Sideshow Bob on hit animated series The Simpsons, four for his long-running role as the title star of the sitcom Frasier), Grammer has previously tackled classics like Macbeth and Othello (as Cassio) on the Broadway stage.

Tony History:
This is Grammer’s first Tony Award nomination.

Fun Fact:
Known for playing high-brow academics, Grammer took type one step farther when he joined the blockbuster action franchise X-Men as a scholarly blue mutant known as The Beast in the film X-Men: The Last Stand.

Quotable Quote:
“This show is such a celebration of theater—I’ve never been in a situation where I’ve felt so connected to an audience at the end of the night, where we’re all as happy as we can be to see each other. I always dreamed of being a Broadway brat. Maybe I waited a little too long to get there, but I’m certainly happy to be a seasoned veteran who’s finally being recognized by the Tonys. It’s really cool.”
—Grammer in an interview with Broadway.com, 5/05/10
