Leslie Odom Jr, known for his roles on “Smash”, “Law and Order: SVU”, “Person of Interest,” and “House of Lies” has also had made a pretty hefty mark on the theatre community. From Rent to Leap of Faith to starring in the Broadway bound hit musical Hamilton, he will use his talent to take the stage in a solo show at Joes Pub on May 24th at 7:30pm. We’ve seen Odom grow tremendously over the years in popluarity. Rightfully so though because his talent has always been in high rankings for us. So, this is guranteed to be a great show.
Following the wrap of Hamilton‘s critically acclaimed off-Broadway run at the Public Theater, Odom will play its more intimate space next door before beginning Hamilton’s Broadway run at the Richard Rogers Theater. The Lucille Lortel and Drama Desk Award nominated Odom has been compared to a modern day Nat King Cole, and his signature style can be heard on his recently released debut album.
Featuring a blend of jazz standards and Broadway, the self-titled album can be found on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. It will more than a pleasure to hear these tunes up-close and live. We’re sure they’re bound to be just as, if not more, beautiful!
