    Gregg Edelman
    With fifteen Broadway shows and four TONY Award nominations to his credit, Chicago native Gregg Edelman has starred on Broadway, television and in film for over twenty years. His Broadway performances in City of Angels, Wonderful Town, 1776 and Les Miserables, to mention just a few, have also earned him the Drama Desk Award as well as numerous Outer Critics nominations. His movie credits include Kate Winslet’s husband in Little Children, Peter Parker’s doctor in Spiderman 2, Crimes and Misdemeanors and Green Card, among many others. On television, he was a regular on CBS’ Hack, has appeared numerous times as a guest star on shows such as Blue Bloods, Madam Secretary, 30 Rock, The Good Wife, and Law and Order, and no list of Gregg’s television work would be complete without mentioning the time he spent as the voice of the peanut M&M. His concert and recording work have given him the opportunity to travel all over the world, appearing with the Boston Pops, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Detroit Symphony, as well as the Philadelphia and Chicago Pops, among others. His many appearances at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops have given him the opportunity to honor such friends as Kander and Ebb and Charles Strouse. His 17 recordings of Broadway shows include the cast albums of City of Angels, Wonderful Town, 1776, and Into The Woods, among others.
