Adam Pascal to Discuss LEZ MIZ Fan Campaign on HAPPY HOUR WITH BEN & ALEXANDER, 4/14
Tony nominee Adam Pascal (Rent, Aida, Chess) will guest on Universal Broadcasting Network's "Happy Hour with Ben & Alexander" on Tuesday, April 14th at 6 pm PST (streaming live from www.ubnradio.com) to discuss a recent Facebook campaign to "Bring Adam Pascal To Les Miserables" as Valjean, in light of the recent news that current Valjean, Ramin Karimloo, will be leaving the role at the end of the summer. Fans can tweet their questions to Adam prior to the broadcast to @BoysofHappyHour.
No stranger to Broadway, Pascal was nominated for a 1996 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical), and won a Drama League and Obie award for his performance as Roger in Rent. In 2000, Pascal was cast as Radames in Elton John and Tim Rice's new Broadway musical Aida, for which he received a Drama League award. In October 2003, Pascal performed as the final Emcee in the Sam Mendes/Rob Marshall production of Cabaret at Studio 54. In 2008, Adam played the role of Freddie Trumper in the Tim Rice/Abba Musical Chess, alongside Josh Groban, and Idina Menzel for two sold out performances at The Royal Albert Hall, in London. In 2010, Pascal starred as Huey Calhoun in Broadway's Tony Award winning musical Memphis. 2013 marks Adam's last visit to Broadway as Billy Flynn in Broadway's long running hit Chicago.
This will be Adam's second time appearing on "Happy Hour" and will follow up his interview with a live performance.
