Average actors who became unexpected Broadway stars

And now stalk around with the cloak of "Thespian" draped about them:

Hugh Jackman; Brooke Shields; Bernadette Peters; Judith Light; Stockard Channing; Angela Lansbury..

Let me tell you about Deb Messing....

(oh, wait...she only plays Broadway on TV. Never mind.)

Hugh Jackman was a theater actor primarily first, OP. Get your facts straight before posting wildly and stupidly.

Angela already had two Academy Award nominations (for Gaslight and The Picture of Dorian Gray) before she appeared on Broadway.

Some of the other people are perhaps debatable, but Angela Lansbury is not an "average actor," you twit.

With the exception of Miss Jackman and Miss Shields (each of whom represents a different category), I'd hardly call the others in your list "average" and only Peters and Lansbury stars (Channing and Light highly respected character actors),

Stupid list, stupid thread. And, yes, I know, I responded.
