Broadway Boyfriends Announce Engagement on Instagram

Take a bow, boys! Broadway actors Andy Mientus and Michael Arden were engaged to be married today while vacationing in Bath, England.

Mientus announced the engagement on Instagram with a quote from Shakespeare's As You Like It: "Come, woo me, woo me, for now I am in a holiday humour and like enough to consent. #engaged #andyandmichael."

Mientus, who is currently making his Broadway debut as Marius in the revival of Les Misérables, played a gay character, Kyle Bishop, in the NBC series Smash. He also appeared Off-Broadway in Carrie.

Arden, who plays a gay patient on the FX series Anger Management, starred in the Broadway musicals Big RiverThe Times They Are A-Changin', and A Tale of Two Cities. He also appeared Off-Broadway in the gay-themed shows Swimming in the Shallows and Bare.

"We are incredibly moved by the outpouring of love and support from the community," write Mientus and Arden in a joint statement to "Both lifelong theatre lovers, we first met at the opening night of The Times They Are A-Changin' on Broadway [in 2006]. We have our fingers crossed for at least twice as long a run."

Following the engagement announcement, the couple tweeted to their well-wishing fans.
