Mark Cortale Presents Broadway @ Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts
Mark Cortale’s Broadway @ Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts series showcases some of Broadway’s brightest stars in the Center’s intimate Virginia G. Piper Theater. Hosted by multi-talented pianist and comedian Seth Rudetsky, these cabaret-style concerts mix popular song with candid showbiz stories.
Tony (Newsies) and Grammy Award (Newsies cast album) nominee Jeremy Jordan had a regular role on NBC’s hit series Smash and the CW drama Supergirl and has performed his solo cabaret show, Breaking Character, all over the country. He sold out shows in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Long Island, Indianapolis and London. Joined by his wife, Broadway actress Ashley Spencer, Jordan recounts iconic moments from his budding career and performs the songs that have defined his rise to stardom.
Jordan recently reprised his role as Jack Kelly in Disney’s live, filmed stage production of Newsies, and he can be heard as the voice of Varian in Disney Channel’s animated series, Tangled, based on the 2010 hit movie.
Seth Rudetsky is the afternoon host on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s On Broadway as well as the host of Seth Speaks on SiriusXM Stars. He has played piano for more than a dozen Broadway shows, including Ragtime, Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera, among many others.
