In 1997, his Broadway career began when he moved with his then-wife Sydney and their baby daughter Clara, to become swing in the musical "Rent." After a couple of months in the part, he got the full-time lead of Roger. After "Rent," Norbert toured as the emcee in "Cabaret" when his daughter Maggie was born. Norbert starred in other shows, such as playing the confused heartthrob Jamie in "The Last 5 Years" and the revenge-seeking Camille in "Thou Shalt Not." He got his big break in 2003 as the hot, careless Prince Fiyero in "Wicked." During his "Wicked" run, however, Norbert and Sydney divorced, and Norbert met his future fiancée and wife, Michelle Federer. Norbert left the show on July 7, 2004, to star in the hit "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," in which he played the clueless but funny Freddy Benson. Norbert continued that role with the...

Clancy Brown, Billy Zane, Norbert Leo Butz, and Nicole Ari Parker in The Deep End (2010)

In 2009, while Butz was in Seattle performing in the out-of-town previews of the musical "Catch Me If You Can," his sister Teresa (who lived in Seattle with her fiancée, Jennifer Hopper) was raped and then stabbed to death. Hopper was also raped and severely wounded, but a detective on the case told reporters that Teresa had sacrificed herself to save Jennifer. Teresa and Jennifer had planned to get married that September. The Seattle opening of "Catch Me If You Can" was briefly delayed out of respect for the Butz family. When Norbert Leo Butz won the Tony for his lead performance in the musical, he dedicated it to his father and his sister, saying "this is for my father, I based this character on, and for my sister. I love you Teresa. We remember you every night." In 2011, Teresa's murderer, Isaiah Kalebu, was convicted of "aggravated murder" and was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole. In 2012, Seattle journalist Eli Sanders of "The Stranger" newspaper won a Pulitzer Prize for feature writing for his article about Hopper and Butz.
