Won The Tony, Hasn't Performed Since

I was just thinking the other day about 25th Annual, and how Dan Fogler won the Tony but hasn't really performed since. I understand he's been doing a lot of voice work and his play was accepted into the Fringe Fest a little awhile ago, but since winning the Tony he hasn't been performing much from what I can find.

Are there any other actors/actresses that have won the Tony for their performances and then haven't performed since?

I know, but she's been launching clothing lines, and was a host of the Talk for some time, but not really on stage though.

Sutton Foster. I can't think of a single thing she's done since she won the tony for MILLIE.

Steve Kazee, sadly.
Four Simple Rules for Attending the Theater 1. This is a nice night out. Dress accordingly. Like, no sweatpants. 2. When you enter the theater, turn off your phone. All issues with phones will be avoided this way, & you won't be verbally accosted by the cast, crew, & other patrons. 3. I did not pay dollas to hear you talk or sing. I paid dollas to see & hear gorgeous men like Norm Lewis, Ramin Karimloo & Joshua Henry. 4. Unless you have medical issues, don't eat. The wrappers are loud, & your disgusting munching is even louder. You aren't at the movies or a barn dance, baby.

(What's up with Kazee? Any news?)

I know she stood by for Carol Burnette, but the loss I always want to note is the great Janie Sell. Anyone who saw her in "Over Here!" remembers one of the great musical comic performances. She became a secretary, and then did Carol Burnette's matinees.

Daisy Eagan never made it back to Broadway after The Secret Garden.

Christian Hoff was initially cast in Pal Joey (and we all know how that ended up), did the LA production of the revised version of Parade and did the Tommy reunion concert.

Paulo Szot is still performing on operatic stages around the world, his latest New York appearance being Die Fledermaus at the Met.

So to say those two haven't performed since is incorrect.

Auggie, he won't ever be be on Broadway again due to the vocal injury he sustained, but he was on Elementary last season, and he's going to be on the upcoming season of Shameless.

Steve Kazee still does concerts, so if you're a fan, you can catch him that way as well.

Sutton, I did not know that Kazee's vocal injury was that bad. Do you know what kind of a injury he sustained?

Paulo Szot: lots of opera nationally and in Europe. His star went up, ironically, after he was in a hit musical.
