Tituss Burgess to Guest Star in JOAN RYAN LIVE at 54 Below, 10/26
Tituss Burgess, best known for his recurring role on the hit NBC series "30 Rock" and for originating roles in JERSEY BOYS and THE LITTLE MERMAID on Broadway, will join actress/singer Joan Ryan in Joan Ryan LIVE, written and directed by Andrew MacBean (associate director with Trevor Nunn on Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Aspects of Love" and "Sunset Boulevard") and musical direction from Todd Schroeder (musical director for Sam Harris, Jason Alexander), on Saturday, October 26 at 11pm at 54 Below (254 West 54th Street) in Manhattan.
Ms. Ryan, who boasts an impressive four octave range, will make her long awaited return to the NYC cabaret scene with Joan Ryan LIVE - a musical journey layered with fiercely rich vocals and an innate sense of humor and frank wisdom.
Ms. Ryan, who is currently receiving both critical and audience praise in hit indie film "Hot Guys With Guns," has been called "a mesmerizing performer who moves smoothly from larger-than-life drama to small, captivating emotional moments," by the Los Angeles Times. Rex Reed, of the NY Observer, said "she can explore the nuances of a piercing ballad with the investigative talent of a forensic expert, then ignite a show stopping Broadway melody with the combustion of a freight locomotive on the Philadelphia Railroad." Her stage credits include the original LA cast of the musical "Ruthless!," the west coast premiere of "Anyone Can Whistle," "Footloose," "Triumph of Love," "Little Shop of Horrors," etc. In addition to "Hot Guys With Guns," Ms. Ryan's TV and film credits include: Tina Paladrino on the popular TV series "Saved By the Bell" and Kathleen Houghton on "The Young and the Restless."
