From the infamous lord of the underworld to the famous painter in the park, Playbill is raising a glass to all the November Broadway birthdays.

November is officially here, and the kickoff of the winter holiday season is growing near. Though the cold is starting to set in, we would like to send our warmest wishes to all the Scorpio and Sagittarius stars of Broadway whose birthdays fall throughout the month of November.

We could never be "Ruined" by gifted playwright Lynn Nottage (Intimate Apparel, Ruined) or Broadway's brilliant bass Philip Boykin (Hadestown, Once on This Island), who share a November 2 birthday.

We hope Dakin Matthews (Camelot, Waitress) has a big slice of birthday cake...or pie on November 7. You can celebrate the wonderful actor and playwright, too, by watching the filmed version of Waitress, streamed in theatres via Bleecker Street and Fathom Events December 7.

Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Kimberly Akimbo, Fun Home) will "Make a Wish" and blow out her birthday candles on November 10.

We "wish"—more than anything, more than the moon—that Broadway producer Jordan Roth (Into the Woods, Head Over Heels) gets his birthday wish on November 13.

November 16 is a momentous occasion to celebrate good Company, when we'll drink to the "Side by Side by Side" birthdays of Broadway veteran Donna McKechnie (Company, A Chorus Line) and revered playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive, The Baltimore Waltz). Also on this day, catch lyricist Scott Wittman (Some Like It Hot, Catch Me If You Can) and performer Jelani Remy (Back to the Future, The Lion King) take another trip around the sun in their "Circle of Life."

We want Danny DeVito (I Need That, The Price) to have a great birthday on November 17. We need that.

Dancing for joy on November 19 is customary, because it is the birthday of outstanding choreographer and actor Savion Glover (Bring In 'Da Noise, Bring In 'Da Fun, The Tap Dance Kid). See Glover's bold dance stagings in a brand-new adaptation of Pal Joey at New York City Center until November 5.

On November 20, we raise a glass to theatre's favorite "old sport" and the Broadway "King of New York"—the incomparable Jeremy Jordan (The Great Gatsby, Newsies).

Hear ye, hear ye! November 26 shall henceforth be known as a day when we must "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," because it is the day performer Christopher Fitzgerald (Spamalot, Waitress) was born!

If Beale Street Could Talk, I am sure it would wish actor, writer, director and producer Colman Domingo (Fat Ham, Passing Strange) happy birthday on November 28. Colman stars as civil rights activist Bayard Rustin in the Netflix film Rustin, which is set to be released early this month.

"Everybody Loves" Broadway legend Mandy Patinkin (Sunday in the Park with George, Evita) and acclaimed writer David Lindsay-Abaire (Kimberly Akimbo, Rabbit Hole), who both share a birthday on November 30. It is a show-stopping finale to a month well worth celebrating.
