Returns to Birdland
Monday, February 6 at 7pm


The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce that Jay Armstrong Johnson, currently starring in the titular role in Candide in the New York City Opera production, will be in concert at the historic room on Monday, February 6 at 7pm.


After making his solo debut at Birdland in 2010, Jay Armstrong Johnson has been a busy boy. He is currently playing the titular role of Candide in the New York City Opera production directed by Hal Prince. He's wowed Broadway audiences as one if the three sailors in On The Town (Chip), Greg in Hands on Hardbody, and Claude Hair. The New York Times called his performance as Anthony Hope in the New York Philharmonic’s Sweeney Todd “affecting and ardent,” and his performance as Herman in Encores’ Most Happy Fella “a standout.” After creating the role of Will Olsen on ABC's QUANTICO, and releasing his debut album, “Jay Armstrong Johnson LIVE at Feinstein's 54 Below,” Jay comes back to Birdland to revisit some of his favorite tunes in an intimate evening celebrating his love of music and theater. Backed by a three piece band with new arrangements and musical direction by Rodney Bush, Jay will take us through some of his favorite career moments with some very special guests.
