Tony-Winning Producer Jonathan Demar Will Make His Green Room 42 Debut This Fall
Jonathan Demar, Tony Award-winning producer of Hadestown and formerly of Broadway's A Christmas Carol, will make his Green Room 42 debut on November 10th at 7pm with an all new version of his solo show Setting the Standard. Joining him as a special guest for the evening will be Broadway's Janet Krupin (If/Then, Hands On a Hardbody, Bring It On: The Musical).
A reflection of his life and an evaluation of what his own standards are, Setting the Standard is told with a vivid cross-section of the Great American Songbook, fusing jazz, pop and musical theatre. Under the musical direction of Jude Obermüller, directed by BroadwayWorld Award winner Robbie Rozelle, and featuring special surprise guests, Jonathan has raised the stakes and is going about it "HIS" way!
"Most people know me as a producer, but what they don't know is that I started out as a child actor and one of my passions lies in performing. I'm really excited to share a piece of myself as a performer and I couldn't ask for better collaborators in Jude Obermüller and Robbie Rozelle to do that with. Given what I've learned about my own self in the past few years and what's going on now in our world, it feels right to do a re-vamped version of this show and bring it to The Green Room 42 this Fall."
