Theatre lovers need no introduction to the man who originated such memorable, classic roles as Jean Valjean in "Les Misérables" and the Phantom in "The Phantom of the Opera." Many Western New Yorkers first experienced his talents during the 1,653 performances he gave as the Phantom during the show’s historic Toronto run in the late 1980s. The Center for the Arts has become a preferred venue for Mr. Wilkinson on numerous occasions where he has consistently performed to sold-out audiences.
Broadway & Beyond gives fans an opportunity to see and hear a more intimate and personal side of this engaging phenomenal performer. Along with his seven-piece band, Colm leads the audience with music and stories performing incomparable theatre favorites including "Music of the Night" and his signature song "Bring Him Home." Definitive Irish classics such as "Danny Boy" and "Whiskey in the Jar," as well as Leonard Cohen’s "Hallelujah" and many more add yet another dimension to a program already rich in musical theatre and create an exceptional showcase for the complete depth, range, and variety of his talents.
