Photo Flash: Jonathan Groff, Russell Tovey and More Clown with Frank DiLella at Birdland
The Broadway at Birdland concert series was proud to present NY1 theater journalist Frank DiLella in the second episode of his new talk show, "Show Biz After Hours With Frank DiLella." The event was taped in front of a sold-out audience on Monday, January 11, with Frank's very special guest Jonathan Groff, who is currently starring on Broadway as King George in the smash hit HAMILTON. Frank had several guests on hand to surprise Groff, including friends Tituss Burgess, Alyse Alan Louis, Jenni Barber, and his "Looking" co-star Russell Tovey. Scroll down for photos!
Groff originated the role of 'Melchoir Gabor' in the stage musical, SPRING AWAKENING, for which he earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Leading Actor in a Musical in 2007. He continued his rise to fame during the first season of GLEE as Jesse St. James, a role he reprised in the second and third seasons of the show, and recently starred on the HBO series LOOKING.
"Show Biz After Hours With Frank DiLella" is a regular theater-based live talk show featuring Broadway movers-and-shakers, impromptu musical performances, audience interaction, and a cocktail or two! Musical director for the show is performer and composer Randy Redd, with Kalli Siringas and Trista Dollison as the "After Hours Singers." The show is always filmed and aired on Time Warner Cable's Video On Demand System.
The Broadway at Birdland concert series takes place every Monday night on the stage of the historic music room, located in the heart of the Theater District.
