Mark David Kaplan most recently appeared as Thénardier in Les Miserables at the Drury Lane Theatre in Chicago, for which he received the 2014 Joseph Jefferson Award. Other credits include Forbidden Broadway (off-Broadway/Chicago – 2009 Jeff Award), Ragtime (Tateh – 2010 Jeff Award, Drury Lane), …Spelling Bee (Panch - James Lapine, dir.), and many premieres with Chicago Shakespeare, Marriott, Skylight, and Indiana Repertory Theatre. Mr. Kaplan has twice toured the US and Canada as Zazu in The Lion King, and has traveled to Japan, Australia, Thailand and beyond with Forbidden Broadway and Forbidden Hollywood. A proud graduate of Syracuse University, Mark is thrilled to be reunited with fellow classmate and dear friend David Lowenstein, and all these talented kids! He is 28-year member of Actors' Equity, a national councilor for four years, and a married man for one month! For my family, and for MAC…thank you for 20 years of magic. Timeless, indeed.
