Natalie Weiss, Trey Ellett, and English Bernhardt to Join Joan Vazquez at his Feinstein's/54 Below Debut

Spanish performer Joan Vázquez will make his New York City debut with 'Something's Coming - a Sondheim tribute' at the renowned 54 Below on Wednesday 5th July 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 guests performers appearances (subject to availability) of Natalie Weiss (Everyday Rapture, Les Misérables), Trey Ellett (Amélie, Rent) and English Bernhardt (If/Then, Next to Normal, Les Misérables).


Joan is coming to NYC after sold-out performances of his show at Live at Zédel, London.

Regarding his NYC debut Joan says: 'I have no words to express my surprise. This is incredible. Honestly, this is a dream come true. When I began to perform this show in Barcelona I wouldn't have imagined someday I'd be taking it to New York. I'm in awe. I am a huge fan of Broadway musicals and Sondheim is a great inspiration to me so I feel both an incredible thrill and a great responsibility to be performing in the heart of Broadway and in such a legendary venue as 54 Below.'

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 (Spain) 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.

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.
