It’s the role of a lifetime and the American singer/actor JOE AARON REID is loving every minute of appearing on stage in the West End production of Dreamgirls — and of being a husband and father to two little girls. Fortunately, he still found time to speak to Attitude


GUY, with a Prince Charming smile and the fairy-tale life to match, Joe Aaron Reid could well be the template for the modern-classic Disney film that gay kids have been waiting for. From hiding who he was from his conservative family to taking on the lead male role in one of the most iconic musicals of all time — with husband and twin toddlers in tow — the 33-year-old actor and singer has lived the storyline more than a few of us dreamed of when we were younger. We caught up with Joe as he prepares to play Curtis in the first major British production of Dreamgirls, to talk about meeting his other half on Grindr, Thanksgiving at Idina Menzel’s place and opening a show in London alongside former Glee star Amber Riley.

HIGH-FLYER: Joe makes his London stage debut in In the Heights, with Lily Frazer.
