Matt Doyle, who was last seen on Broadway in The Book of Mormon and recently starred in the title role of Off-Broadway's Jasper in Deadland, will make his solo 54 Below debut May 22. In anticipation of the concert, he shares his favorite soul music as part of this week's Playbill Playlist.
Doyle, who has also been seen on Broadway in War Horse, Spring Awakening and Bye Bye Birdie, will offer concerts May 22 at 7 PM and May 24 at 8:30 PM.
According to 54 Below, "Matt is excited to bring an energetic night of his original music, as well as crowd-pleasing pop classics, to 54 Below. Accompanied and arranged by Will Van Dyke, the light-hearted set will feature many songs Matt has always wanted to sing, but never had the chance to."
In anticipation of the solo concerts, Doyle shares one of his favorite musical genres, soul music, with Playbill.com.
Doyle co-wrote the EPs "Daylight" and "Constant" with composer Van Dyke, who will accompany him at 54 Below. The two have played sold-out shows in New York City at venues such as Feinstein's, Joe's Pub and (le) Poisson Rouge.
