Daniel Reichard
Birdland Theater is proud to announce that Broadway/Concert star Daniel Reichard will bring “Summer Playlist” to the new stage on August 23, 24 and 25, with shows at 7pm.

Returning to Birdland Jazz Club for an impressive eighth engagement, Broadway and concert stage star Daniel Reichard will headline the brand new Birdland Theater with his brand new solo engagement, Summer Playlist on August 23, 24, and 25. Reichard, best known for his celebrated performance as Bob Gaudio in the Original Broadway Cast of Jersey Boys, will present an eclectic collection of songs, drawing from multiple decades and genres of music.

“When I was younger, I used to make mix tapes with dual cassette players,” Reichard recalls. “I would even record my own voice in between songs with a radio show personae, performing comic bits and setting up the next song. The days of mix tapes have gone by, but we are still making playlists on our phones and our computers. For my show at Birdland Theater, I am going to present my own LIVE playlist for the audience, highlighting my adventures and musical obsessions during the summer of 2018. This is a memorable New York City evening in the making.”

The program will feature songs from various genres including Broadway, 1960’s rock, 1970’s folk, 1980’s new wave, and contemporary radio. For fans of musicals or pop, for homebodies or party animals, for nostalgics or this show strives to uplift spirits with heartwarming stories, high-energy musical arrangements and a full band. Acclaimed arranger Jesse Vargas, Reichard's longtime collaborator, will musically direct.

Daniel Reichard portrayed Four Season Bob Gaudio in the Original Broadway Cast of Jersey Boys, is featured on the show's Grammy-Award-Winning and multi-platinum cast album, and received a Drama Desk Award nomination for his performance. He made his New York City debut after graduating from the University of Michigan in the world-famous Forbidden Broadway. His signature style and talent paved the way to starring roles in New York City and beyond, including his triumphant portrayal of artist and social activist Keith Haring in Radiant Baby at the Public Theater. Other major credits including his starring as​​ the title role of Candide in the New York City Opera's Candide and the film version of Forever Plaid. With his fellow Jersey Boys co-stars, he founded the vocal group, "The Midtown Men," who have performed over 800 concerts worldwide, recorded two albums, and produced two television specials for PBS.
