The Picture of Jason Danieley

  • The young Broadway veteran Jason Danieley is currently co-starring in Next to Normal, playing opposite his real-life spouse, Marin Mazzie. On Friday evening, November 5, Danieley was honored with a Sardi's caricature, which will now join the hundreds of likenesses of great Broadway stars that already adorn the walls of the legendary theater district restaurant. Here are my photos of this happy event.



    Jason speaks to assembled family, friends, and colleagues.
