TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Bay Area Cabaret Announces an Evening with Brian Stokes Mitchell
Oct 06, 2017
Bay Area Cabaret is thrilled to present Tony Award-winner and Broadway legend Brian Stokes Mitchell. The star of Broadway’s Kiss Me Kate, Ragtime, Man Of La Mancha, Shuffle Along and August Wilson’s King Headley II, will sing songs from his extensive Broadway career in the historic Venetian Room of San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel.
Dubbed “the last leading man” by the New York Times, two-time Tony Award-winner Brian Stokes Mitchell has enjoyed a career that spans Broadway, television, film, and concert appearances. He received Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle awards for his star turn in Kiss Me, Kate. He also has Tony-nominated performances in Man of La Mancha, August Wilson’s King Hedley II, and Ragtime. Other notable Broadway shows include Kiss of the Spider Woman, Jelly’s Last Jam, and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
Last season he made a long-awaited return to Broadway in Shuffle Along and received his most recent Tony Award for his work as Chairman of the Board of the Actor’s Fund. 2016 also marked the year where he was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame. An extremely versatile singer, Mitchell has performed at venues spanning jazz, opera, pops, country, and the musical theater world, including two performances at the White House. Mitchell has appeared on more than 20 albums and his musical talent has extended to the present day as producer, arranger, and orchestrator on his solo albums including Simply Broadway and the soon-to-be-released, Plays With Music.
