Since his debut as a newsboy in the 1989 revival of Gypsy, quintessential song-and-dance man Tony Yazbeck has continued to land coveted roles and garner critical acclaim—including a Tony Award nomination and Outer Critics Circle nomination for his leading role in On the Town (2014). With “just the right balance of masculinity and vulnerability” (Hollywood Reporter) Yazbeck has what it takes to create a “spellbinding” (Broadway World) one-man show, inviting audiences to join him on an honest, emotional journey along life’s ups and downs as told through the lyrics of classic show tunes and new standards from today’s biggest pop stars. The Appel Room’s intimate stage provides the perfect setting for this debonair lead whose fresh approach to song and dance ensures that his star will keep on rising.
“A supremely eloquent dancer, a fusion of Astaire’s elegance and Kelly’s bounce.”– New York Times on On the Town
“Performing in the intimate venue of 54 Below, Yazbeck unleashes his larger-than-life charm and talent, gifting audiences with a spellbinding performance that is unlike anything we have previously seen in the venue.”– BroadwayWorld on The Floor Above Me
