Gavin Creel

Gavin Creel received a Tony Award for his performance as Cornelius Hackl in Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler and David Hyde Pierce. Gavin made his Broadway debut originating the role of Jimmy Smith in Thoroughly Modern Millie, for which he received his first Tony Award nomination and has appeared on Broadway as Claude in Hair, (Tony Award nomination), Jean-Michel in La Cage Aux Folles, Stephen Kodaly in She Loves Me, and Dr. Pomatter in the Broadway and West End productions of Waitress, opposite Sara Bareilles. No stranger to London audiences, Gavin most notably originated the role of Elder Price in the West End production of The Book of Mormon, for which he received the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical. He also starred there as Bert in Mary Poppins and reprised his performance in Hair. Other stage credits the Broadway and First National Touring productions of The Book of Mormon, Stephen Sondheim’s Bounce at The Goodman and Kennedy Center Theatres and the title role in the world premiere of Prometheus Bound at A.R.T. On television, Gavin recently appeared as Troy in Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series, “American Horror Stories,” and also co-starred alongside Julie Andrews in ABC’s “Eloise at the Plaza” and “Eloise at Christmastime.” He has released three original albums GoodTimeNation, Quiet (which landed on “Billboard’s Top Heat Seekers”) and Get Out, and his single “Noise” raised money and awareness for marriage equality. Creel was a cofounder of Broadway Impact, the first and only grassroots organization to mobilize the nationwide theater community in support of marriage equality. A native of Findlay, Ohio, he is a proud graduate of University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance.
