The multi-talented Bert Rodriguez will debut a brand-new solo cabaret - The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You - in the theatre's Spotlight Cabaret Series, April 19 and 20, 2023. Playhouse Music Director, Mr. Christopher Leavy, will accompany on piano.

Mr. Rodriguez, who most recently performed as Sister Hubert in the theatre's sold-out run of Nunsense A-Men!, is also known for his expertise on the cabaret stage. He will delight audiences as he shares the Latin music from radio, stage and screen that filled his childhood home and influenced his decision to become the artist he is today.

Featuring standards like "La Bamba," "Besame Mucho" and "Begin the Beguine" and Broadway hits from Evita, In The Heights and Man of La Mancha, Bert will utilize his signature storytelling to paint the picture of who and what shaped both his career and his sound.

Bert received his BFA in Musical Theatre Performance from the University of Oklahoma and is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association. He was in the national tour of Meredith Wilson's The Music Man and originated the role of Crush in Finding Nemo: The Musical at Disney's Animal Kingdom. He has worked on many Central Florida stages as a performer and as a Music Director and has graced The Playhouse stage in numerous Mainstage productions including The Andrews Brothers, Breakin' Up is Hard to Do, I Left My Heart: A Tribute to Tony Bennett, 8 Track and A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine.

"We always love having Bert perform at the Playhouse! He is such a fabulous performer and puts on a great show!" confirms Heather Alexander, Playhouse Executive Director.

Review: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at Titusville Playhouse

“White. A blank page or canvas. The challenge: bring order to the whole.” These words begin Stephen Sondheim’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning musical, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE – an exploration of the passion and beauty found in creativity and art as told through the fictionalized eyes of the artist Georges Seurat. In mounting this rarely produced musical as the close to its 58th season, Titusville Playhouse gloriously captures the emotion, the urgency, the relevance, and the importance of this Sondheim classic and delivers it flawlessly.
