Aaron Tveit's 'Radio in My Head' 54 Below Show Gets Live Album, Out Today!
Aaron Tveit's sold out concerts in May at New York's 54 BELOW will be recorded and released by Broadway Records. "The Radio In My Head: Live At 54 BELOW" will be released digitally today, September 6th and on CD on September 10, 2013.
Mixing Broadway with pop, childhood favorites with contemporary sounds, and superstar vocals with charismatic good looks, Tveit's cabaret debut will have them talking for years. Broadway embraced Aaron when he memorably created roles in Next to Normal and Catch Me if You Can, in addition to his performances in Hairspray and Wicked. Television audiences can soon tune in regularly for the debut of his new USA Network series, "Graceland", coming this June, and moviegoers were recently star-struck by his work in "LES MISERABLES".
"We are thrilled and honored to be working with Aaron on his debut album. We know his engagement at 54 BELOW will be nothing short of stellar and we are pleased to have this opportunity to preserve his performance for his fans," stated Van Dean, co-founder of Broadway Records.
Aaron Tveit's new album is produced by Michael J. Moritz, Jr. and executive produced by Van Dean, Kenny Howard, of The Broadway Consortium, and Ken Mahoney. "The Radio In My Head" is the latest in the "Live at 54 BELOW" series that started earlier this year with albums by Patti LuPone, Norbert Leo Butz, Christiane Noll and Andrea McArdle. More albums in the series will be announced shortly.
Aaron Tveit is an American theatre, television, and film actor. Most recently Tveit can be seen portraying the character Enjolras in the 2012 film adaption of LES MISERABLES where he can be seen alongside Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe.
Tveits' next big gig will be his starring role in the original USA Network series GRACELAND coming to TV this summer. Graduating at the top of his class FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) anticipates a traditional DC desk job when he's unexpectedly shipped to "Graceland." Immediately thrown into his first undercover assignment, he relies heavily on the guidance of legendary FBI agent and mentor Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata). Briggs is an unusually Zen senior agent who notoriously hates the rule book and will go to any length to protect "Graceland" from the outside world.
Tveit starred on Broadway in CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, in the role of Frank Abagnale Jr and also created the role of "Gabe" in the Pulitzer Prize winning Broadway musical, NEXT TO NORMAL, which he developed off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre and debuted on Broadway.
Tveit has received numerous honors for his work in theatre including the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Supporting Performance in NEXT TO NORMAL and the Actors Equity Association Clarence Derwent Award for Most Promising Actor. Nominations included Distinguished Performance from the Drama League, Best Male Dancer from the Fred and Adele Astaire Awards, and Outstanding Featured Actor from the Outer Critics Circle Awards, all for his work in CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.
