Michael Kostroff is 'Les Mis' Tour's "Featured Actor of the Week"
Back Stage columnist Michael Kostroff, who is also an actor best known for long-running roles on HBO’s The Wire and Disney’s Sonny with a Chance, is currently playing Thénardier in NETworks Presentations' new 25th Anniversary touring production of Les Misérables. He toured previously in Les Misérables (as Thénardier) and in The Producers, understudying Max Bialystock.
