His other appearances at Arena Stage include starring opposite Kathleen Turner in "Mother Courage and Her Children," as Freddy in "My Fair Lady," and as Fabrizio in "The Light in the Piazza." He played yet another R&H leading man on the recent national tour of "The Sound of Music," with a month-long run at DC's Kennedy Center. He made his Broadway debut in Disney's "Tarzan."
Nicholas is also well remembered for the role of Nick Chavez on ABC's "One Life to Live" for which he received the GLAAD Media Award, the 2009 Visibility Award, and, along with his co-stars, "Men of the Year." On the big screen, Rodriguez was seen in Sex and the City 2. He is also featured on the film's soundtrack.
Nicholas's regional credits include the Beast in "Beauty and the Beast," Lancelot in "Camelot," Javert in "Les Miserables," Joe Hardy in "Damn Yankees," Joe Cable in "South Pacific," and as Lun Tha in "The King & I" starring Lou Diamond Phillips.
