Burgess will sing his own material in the 9:30 PM appearance. Expect "a very intimate evening, featuring just a guitar and piano," Burgess says. He's currently prepping a solo album.
Burgess was born and raised in Athens, GA, where he grew up singing in the church and around the city, with his mother. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a BA in music. He made his Broadway debut singing "Wouldn't It Be Nice" as Eddie in the Beach Boys musical Good Vibrations. He originated the roles in the original Broadway companies of Jersey Boys (Hal Miller), The Little Mermaid (Sebastian the Crab), and the most recent revival of Guys and Dolls (Nicely-Nicely Johnson). He recently made his debut on NBC's "30 Rock" in the recurring role of D'Fwan.
