Written and Performed by Jim Brochu, Directed by Robert Bartley

Drama Desk Award Winner Jim Brochu, who dazzled as Zero Mostel in Zero Hour puts his stamp on an original musical valentine to the Great White Way. This tribute to Broadway’s greatest character actors features the songs they introduced to musical theatre - Mostel's "If I Were A Rich Man," Robert Preston's "Trouble," George S. Irving's  "The Butler's Song," Jack Gilford's "Meeskite," Barney Martin's "Mr. Cellophane" and Cyril Ritchard's "Who Can  I Turn To?" among others, the two hour show is sprinkled with juicy backstage lore and and a first hand look at these great faces of Broadway from one who knew them,  When Brochu was first starting out, his mentor was two-time Tony winner David Burns who became his show business godfather and introduced him to the world of the New York Theatre. Character Man delivers the iconic songs of ground-breaking composers including Jule Styne, John Kander and Fred Ebb, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, Stephen Schwartz and Stephen Sondheim. As the Times Square Chronicles wrote after a recent New York performance, “It’s just perfect!”
