Deonté L. Warren, who is currently serving as a standby for the Genie in Broadway’s Aladdin, turns from comedy to romance with his late-night solo show Let’s Make It To Love, November 10 at Feinstein’s/54 Below supper club in New York City.
Warren says he is using his Feinstein’s/54 Below solo debut to explore “all he has learned (and some of what he has yet to learn) about love [with] gospel, neo-soul, and some good old-fashioned musical theatre hits.”
He told Playbill, “I chose songs that really speak to the journey I've been on with life and love. I also wanted songs that would explore the common connections we all share. The audience will leave inspired to love on themselves and the people around them a little more!”
Among the songs on his playlist: “Fifty Percent,” “She Used To Be Mine,” and “Let's Make It To Love.”
Major Attaway, who currently stars as Genie, will appear in the concert as a guest performer, along with fellow Aladdin actor Juwan Crawley, plus Kerissa Arrington (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Lydia Warr (Ghost, Dreamgirls), and Lauren Turner (Grease).
Warren, who has appeared in national tours of Dreamgirls and Sister Act, will be backed by a band led by Eric Fotre Leach (Come From Away) and including David Cutler on bass, Zachary Eldridge on drums, Owen Broder on reeds, and Vin Landolfi on guitar.
