Rubicon Theatre of Ventura presents the third event in the company’s Summer Concert series on Saturday, June 3 at 7 p.m.: “Mostly Broadway: An Evening With David Burnham.”
Burnham is the star of Broadway shows such as the mega-hit musical Wicked, The Light in the Piazza and the National Tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Fans of the award-winning singer and actor have reason to celebrate as the beloved performer takes the stage for a live concert event at Rubicon Theatre Company. Known for his powerful vocals and dynamic stage presence, Burnham promises an unforgettable evening of music and entertainment.
With a career spanning over two decades, Burnham has established himself as one of the most versatile performers in the industry. His show “MOSTLY BROADWAY,” will feature his signature blend of Broadway hits and original music. Burnham will delight audiences with stories about his experiences in New York, on National Tours and across the nation. Fans will be singing along, as he belts out favorite show tunes, standards, and even some radio classics. The post-show reception for VIP ticket holders includes champagne, sweets and savories in The Rose Room (named in honor of actors and cabaret performers Amanda McBroom and George Ball).
The Hollywood Reporter writes “Burnham’s dazzling singing charms the pants off everyone in the audience…when he smiles, you could swear sunlight glints off his teeth.”
Burnham was last seen on Broadway in the mega-hit musical Wicked playing Fiyero, the role he originated in the developmental workshops of the show. He is an original Broadway cast member of the musical The Light in the Piazza, performing both on the Tony Awards and the PBS telecast “Live from Lincoln Center.” He is the recipient of the prestigious Helen Hayes Award for Best Actor as well as the Best Actor Garland Award for his portrayal of Fabrizio in the National Tour of The Light in the Piazza.
Starting in Ventura and then in NYC, Burnham was an original cast member of Rubicon Theatre’s Drama Desk Award-winning Off-Broadway run of The Best is Yet to Come: The Music of Cy Coleman.
