About Arbender

Arbender received the Gypsy Robe for the third time in his stage career with LES MISÉRABLES , marking his ninth chorus contract. He made Gypsy Robe history as the first-ever AEA member to receive the robe twice in the same Broadway season, having previously earned the robe on January 12, 2014 for BEAUTIFUL – The Carole King Musical.


Fun Fact “Years ago, I never allowed myself to dream I could be on Broadway — perhaps I was too scared or afraid of failing. Now here I am, having performed on Broadway for more than 10 years, appearing in nine different shows and working alongside amazingly generous and talented artists. I have had the honor of earning the famed Gypsy Robe three times in my career, and just made history on March 23 after receiving the robe twice in the same season. So I say to you: dream and dream big because dreams really do come true!”
