Voice for Equality: Jonathan Groff

Jonathan Groff is a Tony Award-nominated American stage, television and film actor. He is best known for originating the role of Melchior Gabor in the Broadway production of Spring Awakening. Other Broadway credits include the 2005 musical, In My Life. He also played the recurring role of Henry Mackler on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live. Learn more here.

Mr. Groff has participated in several Broadway Impact initiatives including their True Colors Cabarets, a monthly series in support of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) equality. Each show intertwines performers from the world of Broadway and popular music, along with a celebrity host. 100% of the net proceeds from each show go directly to the True Colors Fund and Broadway Impact. Broadway Impact is a community of actors, directors, stage managers, fans, producers — "pretty much anyone who has ever seen, been in or worked on a Broadway show" — united by the simple belief that anyone who wants to should be able to get married. It is a place for "anyone and everyone out there who loves theatre, is passionate about equality, and wants to know how to sing out and make their voice heard." [Link] Openly gay, Groff told during the National Equality March on Washington, D.C. that he "is gay and proud."
