Euan Morton Returns to the Metropolitan Room this October
Euan Morton is set to return to the Metropolitan Room in "Stranger in a Strange Land" on October 5, 12 and 19th at 9:30 PM.
After graduating from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London, Euan Morton spent many years working in various aspects of the craft, from Profitshare Theatre to film and television. In 2002 his performance as Boy George in the West End production of the musical Taboo, a semi-autobiographical show depicting the eighties' New Romantic movement, earned him nominations at the Whatsonstage Awards and at the prestigious Laurence Olivier Awards. He also starred in the Broadway version of Taboo and won a Theatre World Award for Outstanding Debut Performer on Broadway. He was nominated for 5 more awards, including the Tony Awards.
Recently, Euan received rave reviews for playing the title role of Tony Kushner's adaptation of Brundibár at The New Victory Theatre, and won an Obie Award for starring in Measure For Pleasure at The Public Theatre. His other New York credits include the title role of the musical Caligula for the inaugural season of the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF Best Actor Award). Over the last two years Euan has been performing at sold-out concerts in New York City at The Oak Room at the Algonquin, Joe's Pub, The Zipper Theatre and Town Hall, as well as at The Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA. Euan, with LyricPartners.com, released his debut solo album, NewClear in March 2006.
Press notes state that: "Euan Morton returns to the Metropolitan Room, older and wiser than ever. Well, older certainly. After his near death experience and finding out he only has one kidney, it's time to bring something serious to the table. Time to ask some deep questions,"
Using the writings of John Lennon and his son Julian as well as John Denver and Nik Kershaw, this is an evening of poetry and song not to be missed. These three gigs over the month of October will also be the first time in a long time that Euan has performed some of the signature material from the musical Taboo and the first time he and his accompanist , Bryan Reeder, will have played their new material in public.
Truly an exciting event that could fill over an hour of a lonely, desolate Sunday night. We hope we will see you there. Maybe Euan will even flash his 8 inch scar. Cute..."
