SPOKANE—The Spokane Symphony is proud to announce that former Spokane resident Cheyenne Jackson, one of today’s hottest stars of stage and screen,  will return to town to present classics from the great American songbook, LIVE with orchestra, on Tuesday May 20, 2014 at 7:30pm at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.

Jackson—a multi-talented actor, singer, and song writer—has starred in numerous Broadway shows and various television productions, including NBC’s 30 Rock and Fox’s Glee. Born in Newport, WA and raised in Spokane in his teens, Jackson started his career on the stage of Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater before hitting the big time on Broadway and in Hollywood. In 2013, he released a new album of original music entitled I’m Blue, Skies, that includes the top 40 hit singles “Drive” and “Before You.” Now, after a stellar career that includes sold-out Carnegie Hall concerts and award-winning dramatic performances, he is returning to the Inland Northwest for a special performance with the Spokane Symphony, conducted by Resident Conductor Morihiko Nakahara.

Whether on stage, film, television, or in concerts, Jackson continues to have one of the most diverse careers in entertainment. His first leading Broadway role in All Shook Up earned him a Theatre World Award for “Outstanding Broadway Debut.” He went on to star in numerous Broadway shows and various television productions, including NBC’s 30 Rock and Fox’s Glee. Jackson has also appeared in a number of films, including the Oscar-nominated United 93, winning the Boston Society of Film Critics award for Best Ensemble Cast.

In concert, he has sold-out Carnegie Hall twice. The first was “The Power of Two” (Oct. 2010), a night club act with Michael Feinstein that featured the best of the Great American Songbook. It was hailed by the New York Times as “passionate,” “impeccably harmonized” and “groundbreaking.”  This success was followed by Jackson’s solo debut concert with the New York Pops— “Cheyenne Jackson’s Cocktail Hour: Music of the Mad Men Era” (Nov. 2011). The New York Daily News said: “There, in Judy (Garland)’s spot singing Joni (Mitchell)’s song, (Cheyenne) Jackson turned the bittersweet ballad into a beautiful highlight in an evening filled with luscious moments with the New York Pops… [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.”

Ticket prices are $48 and $35. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 28 at 10 a.m. Tickets may be purchased with personalized service at the Box Office at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, 1001 W.
