UCF Alum Takes Over Lead Role of Best Musical Tony-Award Winner Once

benhope200 Ben Hope, a proud Alum from the BFA Theatre Program at UCF, will permanently take over the lead role of “Guy” in the Tony-Award Winning Best Musical Once. Steve Kazee, who won the Tony Award for Best Actor for his performance in the show will give his final performance on March 24th. Kazee has been out of the show for at least 4 weeks for vocal rest. I had the honor of seeing Ben fill-in for Kazee back in August of 2012. And he is GREAT! Congratulations to Ben for landing the leading role in what could arguably be the best show currently on Broadway and representing the Black and Gold with pride!
