He continued: “It’s what Harvey Milk said about coming out to all your friends. And the more we talk about it, then the less we’ll finally have to talk about it.
in its eagerly awaited Broadway transfer after its sold-out, critically-acclaimed off-Broadway run at the Public Theater. ” I knew in that moment I was going to come out of the closet. In a professional sense, there might be an unimaginative impulse in the business to ghettoize you into those parts, and yet you two took them on with such commitment. We were having such a deep and intense experience doing that show together. When I came out, I made peace with the fact that maybe I wouldn’t be a huge movie star or a huge TV star.
“It’s about them as people and not about any careers or jobs they have.” Of the impact on his own career, he said: “When I came out, I understood that maybe I wouldn’t be the male romantic lead in a Nicholas Sparks movie. “When I came out, I made peace with the fact that maybe I wouldn’t be a huge movie star or a huge TV star.But I’d rather be a working actor and not hiding anything in my personal life.And weird as it is to say this, I think it’s OK to talk about it. We can’t know anything about that—how it unraveled and why—but I think we can talk about the part that’s about us. I can vouch for that, because I saw them together, and if you’re one of the nine gazillion other people who happened to see the two of them in the same room in the last four months or so, you’d know it, too. And despite their lack of public comment on the matter, they weren’t hiding it from anyone. Now we’re left with Sad Gavin, who’s clearly in a lot of pain. (If you could have seen the way they looked at each other…) But it was more than that, too. But for most of the autumn, Gavin Creel and Jonathan Groff were the loveliest nonsecret in NYC, and that’s to say nothing of the National Equality March, and all the stories and photos that emerged from that weekend. It goes without saying that they were nice to look at, and there was something so romantic and charming and meant-to-be about them.
But of course, Sad Gavin is Real Gavin, and his candor, as always, has been oddly soothing. You’ll still sing like you’re bulletproof, like it never even happened. If that’s all we ever know about what happened between him and Jonathan, that’s OK, too.
Creel took him to the march on Washington and his love life “became more public.” Groff, who then dated actor Zachary Quinto, told Sessums that dating actors isn’t necessarily easier than dating civilians: “I feel like in dating actors the nice thing about it is they understand the schedules involved or having to leave for three months to shoot something and all of that.

But when I was dating Gavin and dating Zach, it was more about the people they were instead of the actors they were, which is the same about the people who aren’t actors that I’ve dated. Weirdly, after I came out, I began to get a lot more film and television work. My dad did tell me that he started to feel really bad because he used to make fun of guys in high school for being sissies, and now he has a son who’s gay.” As for the cancellation of HBO’s , which will wrap with a TV movie meant to tie up loose ends, Groff told Sessums, For me, the sadness was more based on our having found our stride in the second season and expanded our world. San Francisco, where the series was set, is full of so many stories because it is so diverse and fascinating, and there were so many places yet to go. What was funny about it was that she was there that Saturday night, but at that Saturday matinee Michelle Obama was there.
Audra Mc Donald and Will Swenson Audra (Porgy and Bess) and Will (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) married in October 2012 at their family home in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.
The couple met in 2007 while working in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s production of 110 in the Shade and became engaged in 2011 in Puerto Rico. Audra tweeted a quote from Funny Girl on the day of the wedding; “Well that was just the best day ever.
