Tony Winner Len Cariou to Star in 'BROADWAY AND THE BARD' Off-Broadway

Amas Musical Theatre in association with Alan Siegel Entertainment presents Tony®Award-winning actor Len Cariou (Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Applause, Teddy & Alice,) in the World Premiere of Broadway and the Bard, an evening of Shakespeare & song, conceived by Mr. Cariou, Barry Kleinbort and Mark Janas.

Opening Night is scheduled for Thursday, February 4th at 8:00pm. Performances will continue through March 6, 2016.

In Broadway and 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."

"Amas Musical Theatre is thrilled to present the World Premiere production of Broadway and the Bard," says Amas Artistic Producer Donna Trinkoff. "Len Cariou is a musical theatre legend and it is an honor to have the opportunity to share his extraordinary gifts with New York audiences."
