He went on to appear in several other Broadway productions, including "All Shook Up" (2005), "The Coast of Utopia" (2007), and "Mary Stuart" (2009).
In addition to his work on Broadway, Stanton has also appeared in numerous off-Broadway productions, including "The Common Pursuit," "The Mysteries," and "The Importance of Being Earnest."
