The 2012 Tony Award winner for his performance as Guy in Once makes his 54 Below debut with this, his very first chance to share his original songs with New York audiences! Joined by his band, The Shiny Liars, this alt-country evening reflects Steve’s southern upbringing.
Inspired by artists such as Damien Jurado, Night Beds, Wilco, and others, a few of which Kazee will cover in the show, these special evenings showcase the tunes planned for his debut album, which he’ll be recording this summer!
In addition to winning the 2013 Grammy for Musical Theater Album for Once, Broadway has embraced Steve in roles including Sir Lancelot in Monty Python’s Spamalot, Starbuck, opposite Audra McDonald, in Roundabout’s 110 in the Shade, To Be or Not to Be at MTC, and Edward Albee’s Seascape.
Kazee prefers the more melancholy when it comes to music. Even the happy songs are sad! A favorite: Harry Chapin.
From Kentucky, Kazee is an actor first. He feels like a painter painting a piece of art and wants people to come and see him as he presents his art. “I can’t make a career out of singing songs from Once. . . I’ve always done something different . . . that’s what keeps me living as an artist.”
Steve Kazee will be appearing May 10, 11, 13 at 8 pm.
