Marcus Nance and Friends return to the Metropolitan Room Perform in concert for one night only on Monday, September 10 at 9:30 pm.
“Marcus Nance and Friends” is an elegant evening of jazz, cabaret, theatre and opera of the finest kind. As a fan of both the classy era of Johnny Hartman and Sarah Vaughan and the impressive showmanship of the opera and theatre worlds, Marcus Nance celebrates these traditions together in this regular series of cabarets featuring New York’s finest singers and musicians.
Marcus Nance’s guests will include Christine Arand, Janinah Burnett, Ben Davis, Evangelia Kingsley and Martin Sola; all cast members of the 2002 Broadway production of Baz Luhrmann’s La Boheme. Also featured will be pianists Rick Fox and Grant Wenaus and bassist Jonas Tauber.
Nance has captivated audiences across Canada and the United States with his magnetic stage presence and lustrous bass-baritone voice. He is equally at home in theatre, opera, concert, and cabaret. Nance recently played Caiaphas in the 2012 Broadway revival of Jesus Christ Superstar, a role he also performed at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, and the Stratford Shakespeare Festival.
