Jay Armstrong Johnson, who was the understudy for the role of Claude in the Tony-winning revival of Hair, will make his solo New York cabaret debut Sept. 20 at Birdland.

Johnson will play the famed jazz club at 7 PM.

"The soaring tenor explores a collection of old and new songs that capture his spirit of peace, love & rock 'n roll," according to press notes. "From classic rock greats to the music of Ryan Scott Oliver, Jay will share his innate R&B sensibility, Texas roots and Broadway background."

Johnson has been seen on Broadway in Hair and in the first national tour of A Chorus Line. His regional credits include Pool Boy, Hairspray and Godspell.

Birdland is located in Manhattan at 315 West 44th Street. For tickets, priced $25 plus a $10 food/drink minimum, call (212) 581-3080 or visit www.BirdlandJazz.com.
