Tony-nominated Max von Essen (An American in Paris, Evita, Les Mis, Jesus Christ Superstar) joins Co-Star Elizabeth Stanley (Company, On the Town, The Bridges of Madison County) for a tour through many of your favorite songs from the Great White Way. David Michael Wolff hosts from the keyboard.
"Absolutely delicious," raves The New York Times about Stanley, and the NY Post exclaims she's "boisterously funny," while Backstage declares, "pretty much perfection."
Max von Essen recently completed his run in An American in Paris at The Palace Theater as Henri Baurel, a performance which earned him a nomination for the 2015 Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award. He recently completed a successful run in the revival of Evita, playing the role of Agustin Magaldi and frequently stepping in for Ricky Martin in the role of Che. Other broadway appearances include Enjolras in the first revival of Les Miserable, Alfred in the ill-fated Dance of the Vampires, starring alongside Michael Crawford, Jean Prouvaire in the closing company of the original Les Miserables, and as a disciple in the 2000 revival of Jesus Christ Superstar. In that production, Max also understudied the role of Jesus and performed it many times.
Max has appeared on television in Law & Order: SVU, Elementary, Boardwalk Empire, The Good Wife, Royal Pains, Gossip Girl, The Beautiful Life, Good Morning America, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, The Tony Awards and in the films, The Intern, Sex and the City 2, Seven Lovers, and Blonde. He was also a regular on the hit web series, Submissions Only. His recordings include An American In Paris, earning him a Grammy Nomination, Evita, Death Takes a Holiday, Love Songs of Andrew Lloyd Weber, Broadway by the Year: 1928, and Finian’s Rainbow.
This knock-out pair, backed up by Maestro Wolff on the piano, will steal your heart. Tickets starting to fly for this extraordinary show, epic yet intimate.
