From a Fair Lady to a Boy From Oz, Playbill is giving a standing ovation to all the October Broadway Birthdays.

It's Autumn in New York! As the leaves fall, ghosts, goblins, and black cats roam, and pumpkin spice lattes warm every tongue, we are treating the Broadway babies who celebrate their birthdays in October. 

Let's "Take It Up A Step" for our October 1 birthdays, song-and-dance man Christian Borle (Some Like It HotCharlie and the Chocolate Factory, Falsettos), legendary legend star Julie Andrews (My Fair LadyVictor/VictoriaCamelot), and lyricist Lynn Ahrens (Once on This Island, Anastasia, Ragtime).

There's something about Samatha Barks (Pretty Woman: The Musical), who celebrates her birthday on October 2. 

October 3 is the "Perfect" day to celebrate Derek Klena (Jagged Little PillMoulin Rouge! The Musical), soon to be seen at Carnegie Hall. 

We hope October 4 ends with a sunset View From the Bridge for Liev Schreiber (Les Liasons DangereusesGlengarry Glen Ross), who is soon to be seen on Broadway in Doubt.

We love these October 5 birthdays, Hadestown's current PersephoneBetty Who, and Heather Headley (The Color PurpleAida), always forever. 

"All That's Known" about October 6 is it's Michael Arden (ParadeSpring Awakening), Ali Ewoldt (The King and IThe Phantom of the Opera), and Richard Maltby, Jr.'s (Miss Saigon, Baby) special day.

Colin Donnell (The Shark is BrokenAnything Goes) is the "Big Man in Town" on October 9. 

We'll be singing hello to darling Victoria Clark (Kimberly AkimboThe Light in the Piazza) on October 10. 

"The Words Come Pouring Out" on October 11 as we celebrate Judy Kaye (Diana, The Musical, AnastasiaWicked). 

We'll have trouble on October 12 if we do not give a shout out to Hugh Jackman (The Music ManThe Boy From Oz), Lorna Courtney (& Juliet, Dear Evan Hansen), and Toby Marlow (Six). 

We have no Doubt that John Patrick Shanley (Outside Mullingar) is in for a fantastic October 13. 

"It's All Happening" for Drew Gehling (Almost FamousWaitressJersey Boys) on October 16. 

On October 17, we'll be thinking of Cameron Mackintosh (The Phantom of the OperaCatsMary Poppins).

For one night only, October 19, Jennifer Holliday (The Color PurpleChicagoDreamgirls) is our ultimate dreamgirl. 

"Live in Living Color" on October 21, Aaron Tveit (Moulin Rouge! The MusicalCatch Me If You CanNext to Normal) and LaTanya Richardson Jackson (Purlie Victorious, The Piano LessonA Raisin in the Sun) will be ringing in a New Year

On October 22, Marc Shaiman (HairspraySome Like It HotCatch Me If You Can), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Take Me OutThe 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), and Corey Hawkins (Topdog / UnderdogRomeo and Juliet) will be feeling timeless to us. 

Whatever age Maury Yeston (NineTitanic) turns on October 23, we know its a remarkable age indeed! 

October 24 belongs to Raúl Esparza (CompanyChitty Chitty Bang BangThe Rocky Horror Show). 

October 25 marks the beginning of Adam Pascal (RentPretty Woman: The Musical) season. 

We'll be singing "Into the Bitter End" for Will Swenson (A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond MusicalDisaster!) and Anthony Rapp (If/ThenRent) on October 26. 

John Cleese (Half a SixpenceSpamalot) will surely be looking on the bright side of life when we celebrate him on October 27. 

On October 28, we'll be so "Lucky" to celebrate Justin Guarini (Once Upon a One More TimeAmerican IdiotWicked). 

We'll be feeling just wild about Brian Stokes Mitchell (Ragtime, Shuffle Along..., Kiss of the Spider Woman) on October 31, our finale birthday.
