We’re doing another series that celebrates some of the very best voices for their vocal ranges, with a primary focus on (but not limited to!) theatre. Many will be well-known, while others you may not have heard of (until now). Your faves might not make the list, but here are some that deserve some love, too! Hopefully, these lists will showcase a wide variety within the vocal classifications, to show there is no single way to create beautiful art!
Here are 10 MORE baritones that are glorious gifts to the world!
In no particular order:
Nathaniel Hackmann (PAINT YOUR WAGON, OKLAHOMA!, JEKYLL & HYDE)
Nathan Gunn (CAMELOT, CAROUSEL, THE MERRY WIDOW, SWEENEY TODD, SHOW BOAT)
L. Steven Taylor (LION KING, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS...)
Anthony Crivello (LES MIZ, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, JANE EYRE, KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN)
Thom Sesma (SWEENEY TODD, PACIFIC OVERTURES, MAN OF LA MANCHA)
Anthony Logan Cole (LES MIZ, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, SCARLET PIMPERNEL, RENT)
John Raitt (CAROUSEL, OKLAHOMA!, SHOW BOAT, THE PAJAMA GAME)
