Cabaret On Stage: An Intimate Evening with Sam Harris

Sam Harris’ diversified career has run the gamut from singer and songwriter to actor on Broadway, film, and television, to writer, director, producer, and author. After pulling a weekly audience of more than 25 million viewers on Star Search in its premier season, Harris and his powerhouse pop, gospel, and theatre influenced vocals have never looked back. Now, Harris is a multi-platinum recording artist with nine studio albums to his credit. Rolling Stone listed him as one of the “Top Greatest 100 Vocalists of all Time.” On Broadway, Harris received a Tony, Outer Critic’s Circle, and Drama Desk nominations for his work in Cy Coleman’s The Life, a Drama League Award, and Drama Desk nomination for his role in Tommy Tune’s Grease, and appeared in Mel Brooks’ The Producers as well as Jesus Christ Superstar, Cabaret, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Hair, Pippin, and The Jazz Singer. Harris has toured in concert and has played to sold-out audiences everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Boston Pops. He performed with Cyndi Lauper on her True Colors tour. He and Liza Minnelli performed their duo-show “Schmoolie and Minnooli” in a limited sold-out run in New York. Behind the scenes, Harris co-wrote the TBS sit-com, Down to Earth, co-produced and directed the television special Love Letter to New York, supervised and directed segments of Michael Jackson’s 30th Year Anniversary at Madison Square Garden, and co-wrote Tony Award winning Liza’s at the Palace for Liza Minnelli. He created and directed the concert event, New York’s Finest – Broadway’s Leading Men, and has directed numerous multi-star events featuring Broadway and recording luminaries.

Joining Harris as emcee and music director is John McDaniel, a Grammy and Emmy Award winning music director, composer, director, arranger, orchestrator, and producer who is also an artistic director at the Tony Award winning Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. Recently, McDaniel participated in a live Playbill concert event in Times Square welcoming back Broadway, featuring Brian Stokes Mitchell, Jessica Vosk, and Chuck Schumer. McDaniel produced and directed a virtual concert of Sticks & Stones, for which he is also the composer, starring Audra McDonald and Javier Muñoz. He is also a camp director of Kristin Chenoweth’s Broadway Boot Camp.
