In Broadway & The Bard, universally acclaimed stage and screen veteran Len Cariou gives full voice to an idea that he has harbored since his first prophetic Broadway season of Henry V and Applause; Combining his two great loves - Shakespeare and American Musical Comedy - into one rich and diverse tapestry; outfitting trenchant classical soliloquies and sonnets with inventive musical pairings from beloved writers of the Great White Way - an eighty-minute melding of superb soliloquy and memorable song by a one-of-a-kind master actor of exquisite vintage in what the Bard might refer to as "a most rare vision."

"Len Cariou is a musical theatre legend," extols Executive Producer Ken Denison. "After the box office and critical success of the World Premiere production in 2016, we are eager to share his extraordinary gifts with audiences across the United States and in his native country, Canada."
