TONY Award-Winning Actor Norbert Leo Butz Returns to the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC)

TONY Award-Winning Actor Norbert Leo Butz Returns to the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) @ SOPAC, Saturday, OCT 13th

Two-time TONY Award Winner Norbert Leo Butz brings his inimitable
talents from Manhattan’s Great White Way to his local NJ neighborhood.  Currently a resident of Maplewood, Norbert
returns to SOPAC for a one-night engagement the night of Saturday, October 13th
(Norbert made his SOPAC debut in 2010).


In this special show, Norbert
will perform the music that inspired him to become a performer: bluegrass,
blues, country, and of course Broadway.  More of a salute to the American Songbook than to cabaret,
Norbert’s poetry-meets-blues concert recently graced the stage at Manhattan’s
54 Below club.   According to the New York Times, Norbert “is a much
larger, more complex musical personality than could ever be contained by a
single role. He has the soul of a poet and a bluesman on the same wavelength as
Van Morrison and Tom Waits, two of the composers whose songs he performed.”


A two-time Tony winner for Best
Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for starring roles in the musicals
“Catch Me If You Can” and “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” Norbert has also earned
stellar reviews in such plays as “Speed-the-Plow”
and the recent revival of “How I
Learned To Drive”
at Second Stage.


This fall on Broadway, Norbert
will play the ne’er-do-well brother of Katie Holmes’s character in Theresa
Rebeck’s new comedy “Dead Accounts” which begins previews at the Music Box
Theater in November.
