Richard Todd Adams Biography

Richard Todd Adams has spent much of the last decade performing across the country in some of the most sought-after roles in musical theatre.
He is one of a handful of American actors to have portrayed the Phantom, Jean Valjean, and Javert. A graduate of The Juilliard School, he began his career starring as Raoul with both the Los Angeles and national touring companies of The Phantom of the Opera. Upon returning to New York, he appeared Off-Broadway in Berlin to Broadway with Kurt Weill, Michael John LaChiusa’s Little Fish at Second Stage, and David Friedman’s Listen to My Heart at Studio 54.

He made his Broadway debut in 2005 in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Woman in White, and shortly thereafter, appeared on Broadway again in Boublil and Schoenberg’s The Pirate Queen. He won the 2008 Joseph Jefferson Award for his portrayal of Javert in the Chicago production of Les Misérables at the Marriott Lincolnshire Theatre. He then returned to the national tour of The Phantom of the Opera, this time to play the Phantom. For the last three years, he toured the country, appearing as both Jean Valjean and Javert in the 25th anniversary national tour of Les Misérables. Regionally, he has starred in The Scarlet Pimpernel, Jekyll & Hyde, 1776, Show Boat, Ragtime, Man of La Mancha and 2 Pianos, 4 Hands.

He resides in South Orange, NJ with his wife, Maria Eberline, and their 5-year-old son, Nathaniel.

BWW TV Exclusive: The Cast of CATS Makes a Purrrfect Broadway Sessions
by Ben Cameron - Nov 14, 2016

The cast of CATS was simply 'purr-fect' (see what I did there?) at their recent visit to Broadway Sessions. Cast members took to  their songs like cats to cream (oh, dear God), as well as giving us insight in the complicated and ever so flushed out dramaturgy of the CATs society (who likes who, who fights who etc.). Besides fantastic performances cast members helped our audience find their inner Cat with makeup tutorials and choreography lessons..the 'kitten caboodle'. Ok, I'm done! Enjoy performances by Jessica Hendy, Christopher Gurr, Francesca Granell, Christine Cornish Smith, Richard Todd Adams, Madison Mitchell, Giuseppe Bausilio, Harris Milgrim, Kolton Krouse, Nathan Patrick Morgan, Sharrod Williams and Sara Jean Ford. + Rising Star Hana Freeman.
