Bobby Steggert — Nominee for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical

Bobby Steggert

Show:
Ragtime

Role:
Mother’s Younger Brother, a soft-spoken young outsider whose newfound passion for social justice leads him to become a revolutionary radical.

Bio Brief:
Steggert has built an impressive stage career in only three years, jumping from 110 in the Shade and the quirky Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island to Ragtime and the Broadway-bound Yank!. In June, he’ll play a fictional version of playwright A.R. Gurney in The Grand Manner at Lincoln Center Theater.

Other Honors for This Role
—Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical
—Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical
—Drama League nomination for Distinguished Performance Award

Tony History:
This is Steggert’s first Tony nomination.

Fun Fact:
Steggert’s first paying job as an actor, at age 13, was in the MSG holiday musical A Christmas Carol, featuring lyrics by Ragtime’s Lynn Ahrens—and he still has the handwritten note she sent to everyone in the company.

Quotable Quote:
“I remember being in high school and hearing the [Ragtime] album on my car CD player for the first time, and I was so shocked by the power of that opening number…. For me, [the Tony] means a validation of the dream I had when I was 13 and listening to cast recordings. It’s a validation that I’ve worked hard and been lucky enough to achieve something tangible.” —Steggert in interviews with Broadway.com, 11/09
