I think you left out his biggest show - Miss Saigon.

He was the last Chris on Broadway and was wonderful with Lea Salonga.

Muscle, you could even check on his official site!

Many actors have official sites, most of which include lists of shows said actors have performed in. It is very useful!

(I feel like Ric Romero.)

Will Chase...woo! The man is quite possibly the most talented actor out there.

He's also listed in the who's who section here where the information is really up to date.
And hang on, when did you win the discus?

I got this clip from Limewire when i was looking for something else, and its of the second act of Aida. It has Idina Menzel and then some guy and some girl playing Aida. I couldn't tell who either of them were. Could it have been Will Chase? also, who did he play in Sunset?

he played the lead role...in Sunset...he played...Joe Gillis when i saw the show with Alice Ripley and Betty Buckley. He was way better singer than Betty...she sounded like she had 10 boxes of malboro before the show...horrible! anyhow...just my opinion. Will was in Aida when Mandy Gonzales and Toni Braxton were playing the other 2 leads.

absolutely love this man.

yes, he is married to a woman and has two adorable daughters.

i think he is an amzing actor and singer. he's also so kind. i saw him after broadway on broadway and he waved to my friends and i because i guess he recognized us since we had seen lennon the day before.

there should be more guys out there like will.

umm...i don't think that was Will you saw in Sunset...ALan Campbell was Joe Gillis...Lauren Kennedy's husband...
i agree..MORE producers and directors need to know ALL about Will CHase...he is one of the most talented men i have worked with AND a great human being!!! =)

I agree wholeheartedly with everything already said. Not to mention he's also one of the funniest guys I've ever met! Sooo talented.
And he just adores his daughters. (Is it just me or is there something really sexy about that?...)
He needs to get an awesome role soon. He deserves it.

Andrew...just because Alan Campbell originated the role of Joe Gillis on Broadway...it doesn't mean that he was in the entire Broadway run.

MUSCLE...there must be another Will Chase...because it wasn't this Will Chase...i know Will very well..he has NEVER mentioned anything about being on Broadway in Sunset..Rent was Will's big Broadway debut (after he toured with Miss Saigon as Chris..he was amazing by the way!) and then Saigon on Broadway...but Will was with the 2nd national touring company of Miss Saigon for a long time and considered it his first big deal show..we were in the ensemble together...he understudied matt bogart and then eventually took over the role..it was a really big deal to him and everyone in the company..i am thinking that if he had starred in a broadway show before saigon or even understudied he would have mentioned it...
and i realize that Alan didn't do the entire run of Sunset...John Barrowman replaced ALan Campbell and Bryan Batt understudied as well as Jim Newman and before him Matthew Dickens....SO THERE!! heehee re: Will Chase...just so you know..i don't care about being right..i am just trying to let you, and everyone who reads this, know the accurate information..i think if you check his website you will also see that Sunset isn't listed in his bio..surely HE would list it if he had done it!
if your program says Will CHase...then who am i to argue? and yet.....

of course i ignore anything Lizzie says becuz she/he never admits being wrong even when i prove it...but anyhow...ANDREW i lost the playbill...so maybe i am actually wrong or got confused....anyways...i remember when i saw Aida, Toni Braxton , Mandy Gonzales and Will were in the show...and then i went home and i had the Sunset Blvd. playbill and i noticed both shows had the same male lead....but because i can't find the damn playbill...and you know Will better than me...becuz i have never met him...i think your probably right and i just got confused....so i believe you. And i was wrong most likely. Sorry

Muscle, maybe you should e-mail Will to ask him why he didn't include Sunset in his bio on his site! It could be very helpful! Just like your ignoring skills.

Ho ho ho and have a great evening! :)

Miss Saigon is quite big in the Philippines. So, when Cam-Mac decided to take the show for an Asian tour, he personally selected Will Chase to play Chris with Lea Salonga when they opened the tour in the Philippines. Will was a big hit there. Will also went back to Miss Saigon when it closed on Broadway. He was awesome in Aida and Full Monty. Isn't he going to be in My Secret Garden?

He was just in the Secret Garden world aids day concert. Is that what you're thinking of? He was Neville and he was awesome in that too! (Lily's Eyes was the hit of the evening)
I WISH i could have seen him in Miss Saigon. But it closed JUST before I really started coming to NY for my family broadway vacations.
