Beau tells the story of Ace Baker, who at 12 discovers the grandfather his mother intended to keep a secret. A man who changes his life forever by putting a guitar in his hand, and self-love in his heart. Beau's original folk-funk score is a multi-generational investigation and celebration on what it is to be queer, and come out victorious.
The concert followed Beau's recent performances at Lincoln Center's Broadway Songbook Series, NAMT, Roundabout Theatre Company's Oscar Hammerstein Festival, and a critically acclaimed run launch production this past summer at the Adirondack Theatre Festival. The world-premiere recording of Beau is currently available digitally on all platforms through Sony Masterworks Broadway, and on CD, November 29th.
Directed by Michael Wilson (Trip to Bountiful), performers included Tony Award-nominee Jenn Colella (Come From Away), Jeb Brown (Beautiful), Matt Rodin, Olivia Griffin, Jeremy Sevelovitz (Chasing the Song), Amelia Cormack (Come From Away tour), Max Sangerman (Smokey Joe's Cafe), Charity Dawson (Mrs. Doubtfire ), Aisha Jackson (Frozen), Ben Roseberry (Hercules), Saint Aubyn (Ain't Too Proud), Jim Hogan (Waitress tour) and John Krause (Hadestown).
