In “Broadway and The Bard,” universally acclaimed stage and screen veteran Len Cariou gives full voice to an idea that he has harbored since his first prophetic Broadway season of Henry V and Applause.
Combining his two great loves -Shakespeare and American Musical Comedy – into one rich and diverse tapestry; outfitting trenchant classical soliloquies and sonnets with inventive musical pairings from beloved writers of the Great White Way – an eighty-minute melding of superb soliloquy and memorable song by a one-of-a-kind master actor of exquisite vintage in what the Bard might refer to as “a most rare vision.”
The show first made its off-Broadway premiere in 2016, offering an intimate exchange between the audience and Cariou, known for his role on “Blue Bloods” and his origination of male leads in two Sondheim productions.
Len Cariou — distinguished member of the Theatre Hall of Fame and a three-time Tony nominee, for Applause, A Little Night Music, and for his legendary performance as Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, (Tony Award-winner, Best Actor) — stars in Broadway & the Bard!
