Gideon Glick is one of Broadway’s brightest new stars and we caught up with him to learn some facts about him that his fans probably don’t know!

The 28-year-old actor is currently starring in the new play Significant Other, which just transferred to Broadway after rave reviews and a sold-out run off-Broadway. Gideon stars as Jordan Berman, a gay man aching for love in his twenties in New York City. The show is a dark comedy, a hilarious and heart-wrenching play chronicling his single life with his trio of close-knit girlfriends as singles’ nights turn into bachelorette parties, then weddings for everyone but him.

Gideon is known to Broadway fans for his work in Spring Awakening and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and you might recognize him from his guest roles in Devious Maids, The Good Wife, and Elementary. He will be seen in Ocean’s Eight next year!
