For more than a decade, the soulful and sensitive Brandon Victor Dixon has charmed audiences onstage and on screen with his “powerful and charismatic” (New York Times) performances in The Color Purple, Shuffle Along, Motown The Musical, The Scottsboro Boys, and NBC’s Emmy Award–winning Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert. Mostly recently, he co-starred in Fox’s Rent: Live. In 2016, he took over the role of Aaron Burr in a little-known show called Hamilton for nearly a year before joining the cast of the hit TV series Power. He has also produced several new pieces, including a tribute to James Brown, and has performed in concerts alongside heavyweight talents Jennifer Hudson, Nathan Lane, Wynton Marsalis, Chita Rivera, Liza Minnelli, and Kelli O’Hara, among others. As if singing, acting, and producing weren’t enough, Dixon recently released the app Qurator, which crowdsources and aggregates movie reviews by fans. On Valentine’s Day, the Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award–nominee promises to bring down the house in this evening of essential, powerful stagecraft.
