André De Shields: Old Dawg; New Tricks
Time Out says
The slyly flamboyant André De Shields, Broadway's original Wiz, has had an amazing stage career that has only gotten richer in recent years. (Let's forget about his turn as an ape in Prymate.) Now he's riding high again in Hadestown, which earned him a Tony Award last year. The master showman will have ample opportunity to strut his stuff at this American Songbook concert.
