He is amazing, amazing, amazing. I was looking forward to seeing him in Bare, but since that's not going to happen, I'm glad that he's been having such a productive year. I was able to see him in Pippin and was completely BLOWN AWAY! Everything about this guy impresses me... I hope to see him in tons and tons of shows for a very long time. The Official

I know I'm not the only one who feels this way!

Wonders if Michael already considers his ... talent ... huge?

I really do adore Michael and his musical gifts more than I should for someone I am not related to and/or friends with. I feel like a proud older sister type when I see him perform. I'm so glad I get to sit back and watch his career take off and will, no doubt, be able to follow it for a long time to come (oh god, the puns my mind imagines).

Amen to this thread title. The boy is simply PHENOMENAL.

With his talent, he's going places for sure re: The Official 'MICHAEL ARDEN IS GOING TO BE HUGE!' thread

(Not to mention he's adorable...re: The Official 'MICHAEL ARDEN IS GOING TO BE HUGE!' thread)

I didn't intend for the title to be a sexual innuendo... I can see how it can be interpreted that way though. LOL! But yeah, I think he's gonna be a huge star. re: The Official 'MICHAEL ARDEN IS GOING TO BE HUGE!' thread

He is truely amazing. What a voice and a brilliant actor. I am still in shock of his performance in Pippin. I cant wait to see him in an actual show. And of course he is gorgeous.

I'd like to see Michael in the Bway version of Zanna. I bet he could pull off the title role.

Different idea, Mattio.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Zanna would be, maybe beneath Michael? It almost seems too easy for him to do. Maybe even too fluffy.

Bad word choice on my part, Sum.

I meant more of a "that role doesn't fit him well" idea.

Awww.. AG I love Zanna, it is a bit fluffy, but what a fun show to do. Also it'd be nice to see Michael in a different sort of role, that's just pure fun and not all drama. Though maybe they'd cast him as Mike or Steve instead.

Sum-And a good pearl of wisdom it is. A truly good actor should be able to take on any role thrown at them,

Trisk-I think he'd be adorable, but we're so used to his drama it'd be a different Mikey. I'd see it anyway! re: The Official 'MICHAEL ARDEN IS GOING TO BE HUGE!' thread

Exactly. We're used to his very dramatic serious roles but actors love to break type-casting. And god knows he's got the chops (both acting and vocal) for it.

I'd like to see Michael pull off some kind of evil role... just because I'm so used to him playing naive/innocent (Peter in Bare). It would be interesting.

Hey, I've been lurking here for seriously months, but finally got around to registering.

I adore Michael. I think an evil role would be cool, too. Does anyone agree with my thought that they should do a Pippin revival, with Michael as Pippen?

He could also play the DJ role which has been expanded for the Bway production. That would be closer to his type.

I've come to the consensus that Michael would be f***ing amazing in any role re: The Official 'MICHAEL ARDEN IS GOING TO BE HUGE!' thread But that's crazy Michael obsessed AG for you...

Haven't seen you in a while AG175, how ya been?

Busy! That's the reason I haven't been around BWW as much. Overall, I'm good though! Thanks for asking Priest re: The Official 'MICHAEL ARDEN IS GOING TO BE HUGE!' thread
