One of Broadway's favorite leading men, Brent Barrett has delighted audiences of the Great White Way and London's West End in Dance a Little Closer, Grand Hotel, Chicago, Candide, Kiss Me Kate and Annie Get You Gun, among others. As a soloist, Brent has appeared at Carnegie Hall, The Royal Albert and Royal Festival Halls in London, and with symphonies and Philharmonics ranging from the Boston Pops and the Berlin Philharmonic to Opera Pacific and the Birmingham Symphony. This October, Brent makes his 54 Below debut with Musical Director Christopher Denny in a new show titled Night Songs - think everything from Music of the Night to Rhythm of the Night to You and the Night and Music - and you've got the idea!
BroadwayWorld brings you complete coverage of Barrett in action at a preview for the concert below!
Designed by Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty and architect Richard Lewis, lit by Tony Award winner Ken Billington, and with sound by Tony Award nominee Peter Hylenski, 54 BELOW features an in-your-living-room intimate relationship between its performers and audiences.
