Clay Aiken Hits Spring Awakening

Clay Aiken Hits Spring Awakening

Clay Aiken poses with the cast of Spring Awakening — including Weeds star Hunter Parrish — backstage at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in New York City on Monday.

The 29-year-old former American Idol finalist is currently back on Broadway reprising the role of Sir Robin in the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot through January 4, 2009.

Parrish joined the cast of Spring Awakening this past August, taking the lead role of Melchior Gabor and winning rave reviews from critics.

    Not sure why he should “run for his life”. He looks pretty happy there. Jeesh, not every situation with two men is a hit on one. And Clay is a respectable man…he’s had his fair share of garbage thrown his way yet handled it all pretty damned adult and graciously. Give it a rest.

    Not a fan but he isn’t the devil, people. Save that **** for someone who truly deserves reviling…like Karl Rove…or Bush…et al…

    NICELY SAID ” MAI “, NUMBER # 7…..Clay has come along way since American Idol….Alot more than the winner Ruben Studdard….Ruben is already struggling with foreclosure on a home he bought for his mother….Clay seems to be very happy with who he is, and he certainly has turned out to be a talented actor and well as singer…Fatherhood has really agreed with him…I wish him the best !!!

    mai, dont you know..people think Gay men can only be around men if they are interested in them..just like I as a straight woman can only be around men if Im interested in them, not just for a photo op or a backstage visit…ignorant much *eye roll*

    Clay looks great, hope he enjoyed the show.

    Can’t stand him or his looks.

    Clay looks great and it’s good to see him out giving support to casts of other Broadway shows. Clay has always been a supportive person to his friends like Ruben, Kelly, and others.

    marie # 3–it’s you. Clay’s no elf at over 6 feet tall. Get over yourself.

    ick # 11–Ten to one he looks better than you, has more talent than you, more friends than you, and defintely more money than you’ll ever see.

    Ruth # 10–absolutely correct. If women can be around other women without being interested in gay sex then certainly so can a man. Many men pal around and support each other as friends. Some people see sex in everything they look at–they are the deranged ones.

    It’s a sign of respect for “Spring Awakening” and for the cast that Mr. Aiken went to the show on his day off. Having the camer there gives PR to both Spring and Spam, a win win for both.

    Thumbs-up all around!!

    ick Says:

    So…..#12 you know him personally? Didn’t say anything about his friends, talent or money. Just said I didn’t like his looks. Wow…..you must be sexually frustrated to be so hostile.

    micki Says:

    No, ick #14, you said you couldn’t stand him (or his looks). So, inless you know him personally, how can you say you “can’t stand him”? Do you make it a habit of “not standing” people you don’t know. That man has handled everything that’s been thrown at him for the last 5 years with grace and dignity. He’s given his personal time and money to help others less fortunate through his foundation (BAF), Unicef, etc. Grow up!

    “Is it me or does Clay look like an elf?”

    Actually the correct term for a full sized human is elve or to say they look elvish and since he has a great voice and can swivel those hips when he wants to, I’d say he looks quite elvish. Elves in human form are powerful, beautiful and have magical powers, so I think you are probably onto something and he is indeed an elve.

    Everybody that was there said they saw Clay with his boyfriend in the audience that night anyway. Relax.

    Well, since I was sitting 2 rows behind Aiken at the show Monday, I can dispute Roland’s post. He was there with a woman, entered and left with her. From the pictures I’ve seen, I’m pretty sure it was the mother of his baby – short brunette, petite, looked about 40. A lot of people asked for his autograph and she was very gracious in being kind of pushed to the side during it. She’s cute and he’s a lot better looking in person… and very tall.

    I was sitting about three seats away from him, and he was with a very cute boy with dark curly hair. He seemed to genuinely enjoy the show- which was fantastic.

    lisa Says:

    haha its so funny that 3 people who were apparently really close to him, came in with different accounts of who he was with, I think Im not gonna believe any of them…Its good to see Clay, I dont need to speculate, or care to speculate about his personal life..

    Lisa #23 Welcome to the world of Clay. It has been like this for 5 years. LOL

    He was there with a male and a woman, actually. The woman was introduced as Jaymes and the male was introduced as Clay’s friend.
