Martin Vidnovic (born January 4, 1948) is an American actor and singer.
Vidnovic made his Broadway debut in the ill-fated Home Sweet Homer (1976) which, following a one-year tour, closed on opening night. He fared better with his next three projects, revivals of The King and I (1977) as Lun Tha, Oklahoma! (1979) as Jud Fry, and Brigadoon (1980) as Tommy Albright. Vidnovic's performance in Baby (1983) won him the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical. Additional Broadway credits include Guys and Dolls (1992), A Grand Night for Singing (1993), and King David (1997).
He was cast in the 1998 stage adaptation of Footloose but was replaced during previews.
Off-Broadway, Vidnovic was cast as El Gallo late in the run of the original production of The Fantasticks and appeared in the 2006 revival as Bellomy. Additional off-Broadway credits include Lies and Legends: The Musical Stories of Harry Chapin (1985), Olympus on My Mind (1986),and the 2003 Jerry Herman revue Showtune.
Vidnovic is also the uncle of former Minor Threat bassist Steve Hansgen.
