Since his Broadway debut as a newsboy in the 1989 revival of Gypsy, quintessential song-and-dance man Tony Yazbeck has continued to land coveted roles and garner critical acclaim—including a Tony Award nomination for the leading role in On the Town (2014). With “just the right balance of masculinity and vulnerability,” Yazbeck creates a “spellbinding” one-man show, inviting audiences to join him on an honest, emotional journey along life’s ups and downs as told through the lyrics of classic show tunes, new standards and dazzling tap dancing.
Tony Yazbeck most recently debuted his solo show with Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series. He also recently starred as the title role in The Scarlet Pimpernel in concert at Lincoln Center. Other recent credits include The Cradle Will Rock at Classic Stage Company, the Encores! production of A Chorus Line and the PBS Great Performances special: The Bernstein Centennial Celebration at Tanglewood. Prior to that, he starred in the Susan Stroman/Harold Prince–helmed Japan and Broadway productions of Prince of Broadway for which he received the Chita Rivera Award as well as Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations.
For the 2014 Broadway revival of On the Town, he won the Astaire Award and was nominated for Tony, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle awards for his virtuosic performance. His other Broadway credits include Finding Neverland, Chicago (Billy Flynn), Irving Berlin’s White Christmas (Phil Davis), Gypsy opposite Patti LuPone (Tulsa; Outer Critics Circle nomination), A Chorus Line (Al), Oklahoma!, Never Gonna Dance and Gypsy with Tyne Daly at the age of 11.
