Bostwick made his professional stage debut while at San Diego's U.S.I.U. School of Performing Arts, attended NYU's Graduate School of the Arts and made his Broadway bow with the APA Phoenix Repertory Company in Cock-a-Doodle-Dandy.
He earned his first Tony nomination for his characterization of Danny Zuko in Grease and his second for portraying Joey in They Knew What They Wanted for the Phoenix Theater. He won the prestigious award for his performance in The Robber Bridegroom, a role he originally created at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. Among Bostwick's numerous film credits is the cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, in which he portrayed straight-laced Brad Majors.
Outspoken regarding his bout with prostate cancer, Bostwick was presented with the Courage Award in recognition of his determination to reach others about the importance of early detection.
An accomplished and talented potter, his work has been sold and displayed in prominent galleries. He resides with his wife and their two children in a historic old farmhouse in upstate New York.
