“We are excited to have such a beautiful collection of hotels as our hosts and sponsors for this important series of concerts with the great names of Broadway performing,” said producer Mark Cortale. "The stars of Broadway are demanding, and it is important that they be offered suitable accommodation. The Bourbon Orleans, Audubon Cottages, Hotel Le Marais and Hotel Mazarin are luxury boutique hotels unparalleled in the city."
Cheyenne Jackson has starred on both "30 Rock" opposite Tina Fey and "Glee" where he played the voice coach for the group Vocal Adrenaline, and can currently be seen in the Ira Sachs film "Love is Strange" opposite Marissa Tomei, John Lithgow and Alfred Molina. On Broadway, Cheyenne most recently starred in Encore’s production of “The Most Happy Fella” at City Center, “Finian’s Rainbow” (Drama Desk nomination), “Damn Yankees”, “Xanadu” (Drama League and Drama Desk nominations), “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “All Shook Up” (Theater World Award, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle nominations). Off-Broadway he was seen in the original cast of “Altar Boyz”.
He also recently appeared in “Behind the Candelabra” directed by Steven Soderberg and starring Michael Douglass and Matt Damon. Cheyenne has appeared in a number of films, including his portrayal of Mark Bingham in the 2006 Academy Award nominated “United 93″, “The Green” opposite Julia Ormond and Ileana Douglas, “Price Check” with Parker Posey and “Lola Versus”. On television Cheyenne was seen on NBC’s “30 Rock” portraying series regular Danny Baker and recently portrayed Dustin Goolsby, the new coach of Vocal Adrenaline on Fox’s hit TV series “Glee”.
In concert, he has sold-out Carnegie Hall twice. “The Power of Two” in 2010 with Michael Feinstein followed by his solo debut concert with the NY Pops “Music of the Mad Men Era” in 2011. “The Power of Two” was hailed by the New York Times as “passionate", “impeccably harmonized” and “groundbreaking”. Variety acclaimed it as “dazzlingly entertaining”. “Music of the Mad Men Era” was lauded by critics, and the NY Daily News said, “Cheyenne Jackson has got it all and he showed it all: the voice, the moves, the quirky self-effacing humor. He gleamed like Don Draper’s Brylcreemed hair.”
Seth Rudetsky is the afternoon Broadway host on Sirius XM satellite radio. As a musician, he has played piano for over a dozen Broadway shows including “Ragtime”, “Les Miserables” and “Phantom of the Opera”. He was also the Artistic Producer and Music Director for the first five annual Actors Fund Fall Concerts, which included “Dreamgirls” with Audra McDonald (recorded on Nonesuch Records) and “Hair” with Jennifer Hudson (recorded on Ghostlight Records, Grammy nomination).
