Brandon Victor Dixon Debut Concert at Joe’s Pub

Most people are content to celebrate their birthday with dinner and a few friends or maybe a concert. But Tony-nominated star of Motown: The Musical Brandon Victor Dixon has flipped the switch and prefers to provide the entertainment to others for his birthday. Dixon will debut a solo concert at Joe’s Pub in Manhattan on Monday, September 21.

Dixon, who received a Tony nomination for his role as “Harpo” in the Broadway production of The Color Purple, will perform original music in a show entitled “Journey to the Center.” He will be accompanied by musical director Michael Mitchell and fellow actors/singers Ryan Shaw, Kenita Miller, Amber Iman, and Crystal Lucas Perry. Shaw, who appeared alongside Dixon in Motown, will also serve as producer.

Dixon made his professional theatre debut in 2003 in the role of adult “Simba” in the national tour of The Lion King. He has appeared in the off-Broadway productions of Rent and The Scottsboro Boys. In 2013, Dixon originated the role of “Berry Gordy” in Motown for which he was nominated for a Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance. Recently, Dixon appeared in The Scottsboro Boys at The Garrick Theatre in London and is currently starring in The Odyssey at The Delacorte for Public Theatre.

2013 proved significant for Dixon in more ways than one. He and Motown choreographer Warren Adams formed WalkRunFly Productions to support young artists. The duo co-produced Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring Neil Patrick Harris and Of Mice and Men, starring James Franco and Chris O’Dowd. Hedgwig went on to win the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical and also garnered the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical. Of Mice and Men was nominated for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play.

In 2016, he is scheduled to join Brian Stokes Mitchell, Audra McDonald, Billy Porter, and Joshua Henry in a new musical based on the making of Shuffle Along, as previously reported.
