Rob McClure has been consistently tearing up the Broadway stage since his breakout Tony nominated role as the title character in the 2012 musical Chaplin. However, there’s another New York stage which McClure has yet to conquer—until now.
McClure, who is currently starring as the tormented protagonist in Broadway’s super sized comedy, Something Rotten!, will make his New York City solo concert debut at Feinstein’s/54 Below this weekend, July 1 and 2, and the affair will be anything but rotten.
The two performances are scheduled begin at 7:00 pm, with tickets ranging from $40-$50 and premiums for $85.
Billed as an evening celebrating McClure’s “unique influences through story and song”, audiences are in for a boisterous and jovial evening as the triple threat sings and recalls memories from his illustrious career spanning Honeymoon in Vegas, Avenue Q and the most recent Broadway season’s revival of Noises Off.
As if all that wasn’t incentive enough to get over to the cabaret hot spot, audiences can also expect a plethora of McClure’s friends and former co-stars to make guest appearances including Jenn Colella, Jennifer Barnhart, Rick Lyon and Matthew Scott. In addition to human guests, there will also be those of the puppet variety, proving definitively that, yes, fantasies come true.
