Have you ever felt like an outsider, even amongst your dearest friends? Do you sometimes ask, ‘how the hell did we get here’? Do you run away when Scientologists approach you with flyers, then wonder if they might have something to offer?? Then you might just be a Stranger, and maybe this is a very Strange Land indeed…
Euan Morton returns to the Metropolitan Room, older and wiser than ever. Well, older certainly. After his near death experience and finding out he only has one kidney, it’s time to bring something serious to the table. Time to ask some deep questions.
Using the writings of John Lennon and his son Julian as well as John Denver and Nik Kershaw, this is an evening of poetry and song not to be missed. These three gigs will also be the first time in a long time that Euan has performed some of the signature material from the musical Taboo and the first time he and his accompanist , Bryan Reeder, will have played their new material in public.
Euan Morton, a native of Scotland, received an Olivier Award nomination for originating the role of Boy George in the musical Taboo. He moved to New York in 2003 to reprise the role on Broadway, earning Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Award nominations, as well as the Theatre World Award (for Outstanding Broadway Debut). He earned a 2006 Obie Award for his appearance in Measure For Pleasure at the Public Theatre. His other stage appearances include title roles in The Who’s Tommy at the Bay Street Theatre, and Caligula for the inaugural season of the New York Musical Theatre Festival (2004 NYMF Award for Outstanding Individual Performance). Off-Broadway, Euan appeared opposite Alfred Molina in Howard Katz at the Roundabout Theatre. Most recently Euan was seen on Broadway in the 2007 revival of Cyrano De Bergerac. On film, Euan can be seen in the documentary Showbusiness: The Road to Broadway which follows the history of a Broadway season and is now available on DVD.
Euan has recently released his debut solo CD, NewClear, and has appeared in concert in New York City at the Oak Room at the Algonquin, Town Hall, the Metropolitan Room, the Zipper, Joe’s Pub and Birdland, as well as at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA. In addition, he has conducted master classes in the craft of acting and singing around the country.
