Urban Cowboy played on Broadway from March 2003 until May of the same year. It was a short, but storied run. Justin was in the original company as JD Letterlaw, after performing the show at the Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami in the fall of 2002. For the Broadway run, he was also the Fight Captain under Rick Sordelet. It was while rehearsing one of the bar room brawls that Justin was accidentally punched in the face, sending him to the plastic surgeon for 40 stitches, and leaving him with the ultimate memento...a two inch scar.

Justin was a part of the workshop production of Suessical The Musical in Toronto in the summer of 1999. The workshop was one of the most thrilling and artistic experiences of his career. The material was wonderful, the workshop was moving, and it was coming to Broadway the following year. The Broadway production started out of town in Boston in the summer of 2000, and then opened on Broadway in November of 2000. It closed in May of 2001. The Seussical experience was tumultuous, but wonderful. Justin was in the ensemble, playing a Who boy, a miniature Cat in the Hat, a fish, Max the Dog, a lizard, a Barbaloot (which was cut for Broadway), a Who cadet, and a crazy clown.

The very first Broadway show Justin ever saw was The Goodbye Girl at the Marriot Marquis Theatre, which starred Bernadette Peters. He sat in front row of the mezzanine, and cried, because he couldn't believe he was actually seeing a Broadway Show.

In September of 1999, nearly ten years later, Justin made his Broadway debut as a replacement in the revival company of Annie Get Your Gun. It played at the Marriot Marquis Theatre, and starred Bernadette Peters.
