Actor and singer CLAYBOURNE ELDER has come along way since he swapped the landlocked state of UTAH in the mountainous West to try his luck on Broadway. The Mormons loss was very much our gain. In the 20 years since then he has starred on Broadway several times .

Kicking off with rave reviews and a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Leading Actor in A Play for originating the role of “Ollie Olson” in One Arm directed by Moisés Kaufman. He has never ever looked back. Sondheim has always been one of his most favorite composers and Elder has starred in Sunday In The Park with George, Road Show and most recently in Company . Then when he was part of the star studded cast HBO TV series The Gilded Age playing John Adam, the secret lover of the aristocratic Oscar Van Rijn he won a whole new swarm of fans, even for the scenes when he wore clothes. QUEERGURU caught up with the disarmingly charming Elder to talk about his upcoming show plus his happy home life where he and his husband are fathers to Claybourne Jnr..

And then we asked him to retell a particular anecdote of how the sheer generosity of a perfect stranger completely changed his life on so many levels. You’ll need to watch the video to hear the details of this wonderful heart touching story
