Kevin Pease will direct the 8 PM evening, which features musical direction by Mary-Mitchell Campbell. Burgess is expected to offer songs from the worlds of pop, jazz, gospel and musical theatre. A few original tunes will be part of the evening as well. (Burgess replaces the previously announced Michael Benjamin Washington, who is currently starring in the revival of La Cage aux Folles).
The "Broadway Spotlight" series, curated by Gordon Greenberg, will soon offer evenings with Good Vibrations' Kate Reinders (March 7 at 8 PM) and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' Joe Cassidy (April 4 at 8 PM).
Tituss Burgess is currently making his Broadway debut as Eddie in Good Vibrations. He was seen in Jersey Boys at the La Jolla Playhouse, and his other theatrical credits include Children of Eden, La Cage aux Folles and Big River.
