Brian Stokes Mitchell sounds like heaven (and sings a song from Golden Apple)

Brian Stokes Mitchells are in short supply on Broadway these days. And part of the problem, I guess, is that people aren't writing shows that call for Brian Stokes Mitchell. He is a classic Broadway leading man with a full rich baritone. He is not some rock tenor....he is from the John Raitt school of leading men. And I find that yummy to the extreme.

So I read this NY Times review of his cabaret act and was filled with jealousy.

Note, of course, how much his acting comes into play. He does not command that audience by virtue of his voice alone.

It sounds like heaven. And it sounds like he closes with "Lazy Afternoon", a song from The Golden Apple.
