Laurence Guittard is an American actor.

Biography

Born in San Francisco, California, Guittard came from from the Guittard family of chocolatiers, but instead chose to go into acting, becoming linked with Stephen Sondheim and receiving a Tony nomination for his role as Count Carl-Magnus in A Little Night Music.

Guittard also appeared in a number of television programmes, including the all-star cast Somebody Killed Her Husband.

Singing

Guittard has a number of singing roles, mostly on stage beginning with a role in the ensemble of Baker Street. He later played the role of Dr. Carrasco in Man of La Mancha, whilst understudying and later playing the leading role of Don Quixote. Soon after he appeared in the original cast of A Little Night Music as Carl-Malcolm, and would later reprise the role in the film, as well as playing Fredrik in a later production. Shortly after he appeared in revues and tributes for both Stephen Sondheim and Rodgers & Hart.

Guittard continued to appear in a number of regional productions both for obscure shows such as the one-act Trouble in Tahiti as well as well known productions such as Oklahoma! (in which he played Curly) and Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music.
