FROM BROADWAY TO OBSCURITY: ERIC GUTMAN IN CONCERT
Monday, November 14, 2016 at 7:30 PM
Dreams collide in this hilariously revealing confessional from a Broadway JERSEY BOY. With well-known songs, dead-on celebrity impressions, and a heart-warming narrative, Eric Gutman’s autobiographical one-man musical FROM BROADWAY TO OBSCURITY intimately details the rocky road to “making it”: from sweating bullets auditioning face to face with Frankie Valli himself, to rollicking backstage secrets, to his eventual life-altering change of heart. And when getting what he wants isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, Eric’s internal compass points him back to the values of his community—faith, family, and tradition.
Eric Gutman appeared in multiple roles, including playing three of the Four Seasons for the Broadway, Broadway in Chicago, and National Tour companies of the Tony Award-winning sensation JERSEY BOYS. He also received praise for his many celebrity impressions in the Off-Broadway and National Tour companies of FORBIDDEN BROADWAY and FORBIDDEN HOLLYWOOD. Other theatre credits include: NEXT TO NORMAL, ORDINARY DAYS, XANADU, FOREVER PLAID, I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE, ASSASSINS, and HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH. Concerts: Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra and Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. Film: REAL STEEL. Television: THE TONIGHT SHOW (Jersey Boys Musical Guest), as well as numerous commercials. Eric and his wife Sarah are the proud parents of two girls, Riley and Sydney.
