Chad Kimball, the actor who has received much acclaim for his portrayal of Milky-White — the lovable cow in Broadway's Into the Woods revival — will perform in concert Aug. 5 at the Ars Nova Theater. Part of the Broadway Spotlight Series, which recently presented Aida's Felicia Finley and former Renter Anthony Rapp, Kimball will remove his bovine outfit and offer an evening of songs in human form. Showtime is 8 PM.
Gordon Greenberg, artistic director of the Spotlight Series, recently explained, "This is an incredible opportunity to see some of Broadway's most exciting young talent as individual performers in an up-close and personal environment. For about the cost of a movie, audiences get a completely original evening with a major talent. We are committed to offering this sort of an intimate platform to performers, composers and lyricists who wish to explore new material in a comfortable setting."
On Broadway Chad Kimball was seen in Frank Wildhorn's The Civil War, a musical he also toured nationally. His other theatrical credits include productions of Chess, Godspell, Sweeney Todd, Equus, The Winter's Tale and Three Sisters. A graduate of the Boston Conservatory, Kimball is also the understudy for Jack — of beanstalk fame — in Into the Woods.
The Ars Nova Theater is located at 511 W. 54th Street in New York City. Tickets are priced at $12 and are available, cash only, at the door. For reservations and information, call (212) 977-1700.
