About Andy Taylor

Andy Taylor created the role of Howard the nerdy weatherman in Moon Over Buffalo, Carol Burnett’s return to Broadway after thirty years. The experience is chronicled in Moon Over Broadway by the Oscar winning documentarians at Pennebaker-Hegedus films. As a behind the scenes story it is cringe-inducing, but Andy did train his comedy chops for 16 months at Carol’s side, an experience he highly recommends.   Andy will play Sheldrake in the upcoming Broadway revival of Sunset Boulevard starring Glenn Close.  He's originated two other roles on Broadway, J.H. Rodgers in Titanic, and Bank Manager in the Tony Award-winning Once where he also co-wrote one of the songs.  He played Congressman Lockwood in the recent Roundabout revival of On The 20th Century, toured the country starring as Leo Bloom in The Producers in the first national tour and played Ernst in the acclaimed Sam Mendes/Rob Marshall revival of Cabaret. He’s originated roles in many of the major regional theaters in America, appearing at the Goodman, Guthrie, ACT, South Coast Rep, the Globe, the Geffen, and the Mark Taper Forum. He recently guest starred on Elementary, and has been seen on CSI, Law and Order, and the old soap As the World Turns.  He appeared in the 1996 film version of The Sunshine Boys with Woody Allen and Peter Faulk, playing Sarah Jessica Parker's husband Michael Davison.  Andy was recently seen in the New Line feature film Collateral Beauty with Will Smith and Kate Winslet.

He is a double degree graduate in cello performance and acting from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and Oberlin College. This led to his rare combo of playing Carnegie Hall twice in two disciplines, singing the leading role as Stephen Burton in Gershwin’s Tip-Toes and playing his cello on a chamber music recital with guitarist James Keating. He is happily married with a slew of children and tries to return to his home in Montana whenever he can. It was there he fought forest fires, drove a truck, trained developmentally disabled adults, and set a state record in swimming that stood for several hours.
