A Schaefer Spotlight Series Event

Series Sponsorship provided by Bonnie and Jamie Schaefer.
Supporting Sponsorship provided by Broyhill Family Foundation, The Campus Store, Explore Boone, Mast General Store, Goodnight Brothers, SkyBest Communications, Inc., and Appalachian Home Care LLC.

Renowned for his acting work on stage and screen (the Oscar-nominated film Da 5 Bloods and in Shonda Rhimes’ Scandal), fans of musical theater best know Norm Lewis, the SAG and Tony Award-nominated star, for his booming baritone and the magnetic charisma that has marked every step of his nearly three decades of Broadway excellence.
In his one-man show, Lewis, backed by a trio, will perform a revue of songs hand-picked from his impressive resume of the who’s-show among leading man roles — including Javert in Les Misérables, Porgy in Porgy and Bess, Billy Flynn in Chicago, and the titular characters in The Phantom of the Opera and Sweeney Todd — as well as additional selections ranging from jazz, blues and soul, to pop and classic American favorites.

LOCATION: Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts, 733 Rivers St., Boone, NC 28608
