The Dress Circle: A Spotlight on Jason Danieley
We’re shining a spotlight on Broadway leading man Jason Danieley on this week’s Dress Circle (11/14 7:00 p.m.). Our first encounter with Danieley was in the original Philadelphia production of Adam Guettel’s “Floyd Collins” which shortly thereafter appeared off-Broadway. From there, Danieley made his Broadway debut as a replacement Billy Flynn in the long-running revival of “Chicago” before landing his impressive starring role in the 1997 revival of “Candide.” On tonight’s program, we’ll be showcasing Danieley’s incredible voice in these as well as his appearances in the Carnegie Hall concert performance of “South Pacific,” Kander and Ebb’s backstage murder mystery musical “Curtains” and their interestingly odd adaptation of “The Visit.” We’ve also planned songs form “The Full Monty” and two recordings he made with his late wife, the remarkable Marin Mazzie: a studio cast recording of a “lost” score by Vernon Duke titled “Misia” and the collection of songs they did together released under the title of “Opposite You.”
Once again, you may not be familiar with Danieley, but we’re sure that, once you hear his gorgeous tenor (especially in songs like “You Walk with Me” from “The Full Monty”), you’ll want to hear more.
