Curtis Sullivan opens as Gaston in Beauty and the Beast

Curtis Sullivan flexes his beastly side
Canadian barihunk Curtis Sullivan, who we've featured numerous times on this site for his sexy and beautifully sung appearances with Opera Atelier, will be crossing over to Broadway when he opens tonight as Gaston in Beauty and the Beast. The musical is being presented by Tutta Musica at the Capitol Theatre in Moncton, New Brunswick from February 23 through March 3rd. Tickets are available online.

At Opera Atelier he's performed Selim in Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail and Die Zauberflöte, as well as Samiel in Weber's Der Freischütz.

Sullivan is not new to crossover music, as he's part of the Canadian trio Bravura, which performs classic Broadway, Pop standards, Italian folk songs and classical music. The other members include George Masswohl and James Levesque.

Sullivan is not the only operatic barihunk to sing Gaston on stage. In 2015, Christiaan Smith-Kotlarek joined the national touring company of the show on their U.S. tour.
