Norm Lewis to Take a Night Off from 'SWEENEY' in Concert at the Landmark
Grammy winner Norm Lewis takes a night off from his dastardly deeds as off-Broadway's newest Sweeney Todd to spend Friday night April 28 at the Jeanne Rimsky Theater at Landmark.
Lewis, who stepped into the role of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street at the Barrow Theater on April 11, is reprising a role he's played in regional theater. Landmark's concertgoers can expect the same powerful voice and commanding presence that have made Lewis a star of stage, screen and television.
In May of 2014, Norm Lewis made history as The Phantom of the Opera's first African- American Phantom on Broadway. He has been seen on PBS in the Live From Lincoln Center productions of Showboat with Vanessa Williams, Norm Lewis: Who Am I? and New Year's Eve:
A Gershwin Celebration with Diane Reeves, as well as American Voices with Renée Fleming and the PBS Special First You Dream - The Music of Kander & Ebb. His additional television credits include Chicago Med, Gotham, The Blacklist, and Blue Bloods, as well as a recurring role as Senator Edison Davis on the hit drama Scandal.
Mr. Lewis received Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award nominations for his performance as Porgy in the Broadway production of The Gershwins' Porgy & Bess. Other Broadway credits include Sondheim on Sondheim, The Little Mermaid, Les Misérables, Chicago, Amour, The Wild Party, Side Show, Miss Saigon, and The Who's Tommy. In London's West End he has appeared as Javert in Les Misérables and Les Misérables: The 25th Anniversary Concert, which aired on PBS.
Off-Broadway Mr. Lewis has performed in Dessa Rose (Drama Desk nomination, AUDELCO Award), Shakespeare in the Park's The Tempest, The Two Gentlemen of Verona (Drama League nomination), Captains Courageous, and A New Brain.
On film Mr. Lewis has appeared in Winter's Tale, Sex and the City 2, Confidences, Preaching to the Choir, and the upcoming film, Magnum Opus.
