Ron Raines to Return to Broadway

Ron Raines will return to Broadway on October 9th in the Disney hit musical Newsies. Ron will fill in for John Dossett for nine weeks as Joseph Pulitzer while Dossett appears in a play in New York City. Ron finished his run as Ben Stone in Follies back in June after being nominated for the Tony Award for Best Lead Actor in a Musical.  His run in Follies began in May of 2011 in Washington D.C. After critical acclaim the show moved to the Broadway stage in August of 2001 where it ran until January of 2012, before heading to LA for a limited run.

Raines began his career on stage and never imagined he's wind up playing "Alan Spaulding" for 15 years on Guiding Light. In addition to Follies and Newsies Ron has appeared in Broadway in Chicago, Showboat and Teddy and Alice.
