The big New York critics typically only review a Broadway musical when it opens, so very often the only actors reviewed by publications like The New York Times are those who originate the role and perform on opening night. Unfortunately, this model means that the critics don’t see wildly talented replacements that come into an already running musical, and so their performances only live on by word of mouth (and illegal YouTube videos). Below, BroadwayBox highlights 10 such current Broadway replacements—actors doing sensational jobs creating their own unique characters and performances. These dynamic 10 deserved to be re-reviewed or, at the very least, seen live by you.
