In the late 1990s, Justin Timberlake rose to fame as the lead vocalist of boy band 'N SYNC. He became one of the most commercially successful singers of the decade after releasing his first two solo albums (Justified and FutureSex/LoveSounds), which both exceeded sales of seven million copies worldwide. Both his third and fourth albums (The 20/20 Experience, Parts 1 and 2) debuted at #1 on the charts. Timberlake's work has earned him nine Grammy Awards and four Emmy Awards.
Broadway Sings Justin Timberlake, produced and directed by Corey Mach (Hands on a Hardbody, Wicked, Godspell), will celebrate the talent and success of this diverse, legendary artist.
