None of those people were voted "Star of the Year" by readers of Broadway.com. That honor goes to former "American Idol" finalist Constantine Maroulis.

Maroulis was the "overwhelming choice" of more than 25,000 voters in the year-end poll for his Tony-nominated performance in the '80s rock musical "Rock of Ages," the site says.

Bush"), Gavin Creel ("Hair"), Alice Ripley ("Next to Normal") and Geoffrey Rush ("Exit the King").
