Norm Lewis: Who Am I?

There are two more chances to see what the New York Times said was the 2014 American Songbook “high point of the year.” Norm Lewis holds the distinction of being the first African-American to play the title role in The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. For two decades he has brought his powerful timbre and creamy tone to roles such as Porgy opposite Audra McDonald in The Gershwin’ Porgy and Bess for which he received a 2011 Tony nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Musical, Javert in the Broadway and 25th Anniversary London productions of Les Miserables, the Broadway revue Sondheim on Sondheim, Billy Flynn in Chicago, and Valentine in Two Gentlemen of Verona in Shakespeare in the Park. In 2005, he captured particular attention, and a Drama Desk Award nomination, in the Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Dessa Rose. On television, Lewis can be seen playing Senator Edison Davis on the ABC hit series Scandal, and reprising the role of Javert in the star-studded 25th Anniversary O2 Arena Concert. This year he will appear with the New York Philharmonic in their production of Showboat, and their New Year's Eve: A Gershwin Celebration co-starring Dianne Reeves, both of which will air on PBS. Lewis also released a solo CD of Broadway, pop, and classical songs entitled This Is the Life.

Tickets for the 7:30 pm show start at $55
