Broadway and Beyond: An Evening with Bart Shatto

 

Broadway and Beyond: An Evening with Bart Shatto dazzles audiences with some of Broadway’s most memorable music from various roles Bart has played.  From Peter Pan and Pippin, to Jekyll / Hyde all the way to the Phantom, Bart Shatto boasts an impressive range.  He'll also pay tribute to some of the great crooners of our time including Frank Sinatra, Josh Grobin, Andy Williams, and more.  Bart’s down to earth personality, powerful soaring tenor and unique ability to portray a large range of characters will provide a fun, nostalgic night for all! Accompanied by Rochester's own David Labman.

 

Renowned for his portrayal of a schizophrenic homeless man singing “Old City Bar” with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (with whom he has toured for the past 10 years), Bart Shatto has an extensive resume.  Born in Illinois, Bart studied theatre and mass communications at Western Illinois University and Southern Illinois University.  While working at Holland American Cruise Lines he was invited by Jim Caruso to join the cast of “Wiseguys.”  After his year run with “Wiseguys,” Bart decided to pursue a theatrical career, landing roles such as “Gus / Growltiger” in the National Tour of Cats, “Lincoln” in The Civil War on Broadway, and “Jean Vajean” in Les Miserables on Broadway and the National Tour.  Most recently, he appeared on Broadway in the new musical Hands on a Hardbody.  Film work includes a role in the feature film "Freedom" starring Cuba Gooding, Jr.

 

Here's what the critics have said about Bart Shatto:

 

"Shatto is magnificent… displaying an impressive singing range" – Philadelphia Daily

 

"He seems to have the unique ability to straddle the line between leading man and character actor."– Broadway World

 

"An epic musical demands an epic lead.  In Bart Shatto, the show has a bright and compelling star.  Vocally, Shatto has one of those knockout tenor voices that can reach the back of the house with a ringing clarity and powerful resonance." – The Times - Picayune

 

"Then there is Shatto. His Fagin is ingenious. His wonderful tenor voice complements his quirky comic timing and stage business. The audience responds to him with resounding and lengthy applause. Shatto's interpretation of "Reviewing the Situation" is worth the ticket price. It is safe to say that area audiences will want to see more of Shatto, Broadway actor (Les Miserables, Dracula, and The Civil War) and featured vocalist with the symphonic rock band Trans-Siberian Orchestra (check out Shatto's website and watch him on YouTube). His talents allow him to cross over musical genres as well as appeal to various age groups. ." – Winchester Star
