Matthew Kovach set out to do what every Midwestern homosexual was expected to do: become a Musical Theatre major and move to New York to become a Broadway star. But the universe had other plans for him. Join him in this cabaret performance as he chronicles his 30-year evolution from ingénue to NONGÉNUE. (Jazz hands sold separately.)

About Matthew Kovach

Matthew Kovach graduated from Baldwin Wallace University with a Bachelors of Music in Musical Theatre and has few other real-world skills except that he can type really fast. Like, really fast. And he’s a good cook. Like, really good.

He appeared in regional theater productions including A Little Night Music, A Grand Night for Singing, Richard III, My Fair Lady, She Loves Me, and The Most Happy Fella, as well as New York City cabaret performances at The Duplex, Le Poisson Rouge, and Gotham Comedy Club. He is a co-creator of Living Room Productions, a Musical Theater “book club” that has performed over 100 musicals in an actual living room.

Kovach is incredibly proud to be part of the staff at the Entertainment Community Fund, the national human services organization for professionals in film, theater, television, music, opera, radio and dance.
