Norm Lewis, Tony-nominated singer and actor, is joining the NSO in a performance of Broadway classics on the stage of the Filene Center at Wolf Trap on Friday, July 30, and Saturday, July 31, at 8 PM. You may have seen and heard Norm Lewis on Broadway in Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, The Little Mermaid, The Kennedy Center’s The Music Man, NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, or many other productions including TV performances (like TV’s Scandal) in which, sadly, he doesn’t sing!

I have heard Norm Lewis sing many times and am always astonished at that velvety, rich baritone caressing every syllable he sings into burnished gold. Ahem! But I digress…Did I tell you how gorgeous he is? Sigh. And did you know that he was the first African American actor to perform the title role in Broadway’s long running Phantom of the Opera?
