Bart Shatto Biography

From the stages of Broadway, where he played the pivotal role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, to packed
arenas on tour with the Gold/Platinum selling rock-symphonic band, The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Bart has
delighted audiences with his magnificent talents. Year after year, fans faithfully return to hear him sing “Old
City Bar” dressed in rags, once again retelling his Christmas “fable” of giving. Bart’s vocals can be heard on
albums including the original Children of Eden (original cast) and several Trans-Siberian Orchestra
soundtracks.
A versatile actor/singer, Bart has shined in leading roles on Broadway (“Les Miserables,” “Dracula,” and “The
Civil War”/Tony Nom. Best Musical), Broadway National Tours (“Les Miserables,” “CATS,” “ The Civil
War"/Helen Hayes Nom. Best Musical), as well as some of the most acclaimed regional theaters in the country
(i.e., Actors Theatre of Louisville, Fords Theatre, Alley Theatre.) His impressive resume boasts an eclectic skill
set garnering him national commercial spots (ESPN, Comcast, Minolta, Conair), unique Television roles
("Ghost Stories," "Guiding Light") and leads in short films (“Finding Father,” “Opening Fright.” He has also
had the privilege of performing at such distinguished venues as Carnegie Hall and at the National Theatre in
Washington D.C. for President George Bush.
Bart resides in New Jersey with his wife Amy Bladen, P.h.D. and his teenage son and budding thespian, Conor
Shatto.
Bart is proudly represented by The Mine agency and Bohemia Group Mgt.

BWW Review: Nicholas Kaminski Brings An Exciting New Voice to The Green Room 42 Photo BWW Review: Nicholas Kaminski Brings An Exciting New Voice to The Green Room 42
by Ricky Pope - Feb 7, 2022

Nicholas Kaminski, whose self-titled show opened on Saturday at the Green Room 42, is a new writer who would have felt completely at home in the mountain resorts where clever and topical songs were created at a breakneck pace. I have had the pleasure of seeing M Kaminski sing his songs individually at Michael McAssey’s “Open Mac” at Pangea. They are always something fresh and unexpected. Seeing an entire evening of his work was something I was looking forward to. I’m happy to report he did not disappoint. Together with his friends, Staci Jo Johnson, Rachel Phalen, Jada Valenciaga, Bart Shatto, Kelsey Kaufman, Lauren Ranahan, and Aaron Remy, he delivered over a dozen well-crafted story songs that announce the arrival of a very individual new musical theatre voice. Mr. Kaminski has a talent for catchy melodies and wry, self-deprecating lyrics that have the elegance of Bock & Harnick combined with the bawdiness of William Finn.

Kevin Pollack has released the music video for his song 'Man About Town.' The music video, directed by Deric Gochenauer, follows a man anxious to meet a girl for a date, and once they are together it seems as if the whole town is following their love around, acting as the dancers to their musical number romance. The music video matches the tone of the upbeat song perfectly, making for an all-around feel good experience.
