Nancy Anderson to Join Joan Vazquez in His NYC Return

After his succesful New York debut on July 2017 at 54 Below, Spanish performer Joan Vázquez will come back to New York City with 'Something's Coming - a Sondheim tribute' at the renowned Metropolitan Room in Manhattan on Wednesday, September 6th at 9.30pm.

In the style of recent actor-musician Sondheim latest productions on Broadway, this new guy in town goes solo celebrating music theatre genius Stephen Sondheim with legendary songs such as "Losing My Mind", "Finishing the Hat", "Send in the Clowns" or "Being Alive", accompanied by himself on the piano, while delivering Mr. Sondheim's witty quotes on the state of the art, love and life.

Joan will be joined by the special Broadway guest actress appearance (subject to availability) of Nancy Anderson. Nancy Anderson is a 20-year veteran singer, actor and dancer who made her Broadway debut as "Mona" in A Class Act, played the roles of "Helen" and "Eileen" in the Broadway revival of Wonderful Town and most recently understudied Glenn Close in the Broadway revival of Sunset Boulevard. Other credits include the National Tour and West End premiere of Kiss Me Kate, for which she received Helen Hayes and Olivier Award nominations. Nancy received her third Drama Desk Nomination this year for best solo performance in Julianne Wick Davis' and Dan Collins' The Pen. Previously she was nominated for best supporting actress in Jolson & Co. (2002), and best leading actress in Fanny Hill (2006). Nancy's debut album, "Ten Cents A Dance" featuring Ross Patterson and his Little Big Band led to a concert career ranging from sharing the stage with Michael Feinstein in his series at Zankel Hall to singing with the Atlanta Symphony as well as regular appearances at the legendary jazz club, Birdland, and a recent debut at 54 Below.

Joan is coming back to New York after sold-out performances of his show at Live at Zédel, London, and at different venues in Spain.

Regarding coming back to New York Joan says: 'It's awesome to see how much cabaret life there is in New York City and The Met Room is indeed one of the most famous spots for cabaret in town. I'm so looking forward to perform there and to bring the show to more audiences. I will be performing some new material as well so it's all very exciting.'

Regarding Sondheim's work he says: 'Sondheim is my favourite composer since I played Frank in Merrily We Roll Along in Barcelona and my admiration won't stop growing. He can take me with just one chord and sometimes with even less. You always know it's him. His words are beyond. So deep and yet so simple. He's a wizard.'

Stephen Sondheim is an Academy-Award, Tony and Pulitzer winner for Company, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Follies, Sunday in the Park with George, Merrily We Roll Along, Passion and Into the Woods.

Joan's credits include Claude in Hair, Frank in Merrily We Roll Along, Sky in Mamma Mia! and Lockwood in The History Boys, in the recent Barcelona and Madrid productions. Other credits include Abdullah in the world première of Bagdad Café directed by Percy Adlon, My Fair Lady, and the first Spanish production of Rent, directed by Abby Epstein and Michael Greif. Next Fall Joan will star in the new one-actor musical Paquito Forever in Barcelona.

Joan has regularly worked with repertory companies in Barcelona such as Gataro, The Zombie Company, La Barni or El Musical Més Petit, in revues, cabaret and fringe productions such as Flor de Nit, Le Llaman Copla and Off-Broadway. His writing credits include Se Fue En Un Barco (The Ship that got away), a play about Spanish post-war refugees.

Joan's debut solo album 'Something's Coming - a Sondheim tribute' with the songs from the show is available on iTunes.
