Versatile Voice Brings Broadway to Garner

Versatile is the one word needed to describe Norm Lewis. Renowned on Broadway and in concert halls around the world, you may even recognize him from a recurring role on TV’s Scandal.

But this weekend, Garner welcomes Lewis up-close and personally, as he performs the second show of this year’s Broadway Voices concert series.

Set for Saturday night at 7:30 at Garner Performing Arts Center, aka GPAC, Lewis will unleash the baritone that’s earned him a Tony Award nomination for his role in Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, and led to a successful year-long London run as Javert in the 25th anniversary of Les Miserables, after performing the role in the 2006 Broadway revival of that show.  

Seen and heard from films to opera halls, Lewis’ numerous other Broadway credits range from Sondeim On Sondeim with Vanessa Williams to the role of The Little Mermaid’s King Triton, Chicago, Miss Saigon, and The Who's Tommy.

Lewis is also known in the Triangle region, having been the featured performer for several years in the Duke Children’s Classic in Durham, and starred as the lead in N.C. Theatre’s production of Ragtime in 2004.

Only a limited number of tickets remain for this Broadway Voices concert. Tickets are $35, and are available at

The final concert in the 2013-14 Broadway Voices series stars Christiane Noll, at GPAC on March 15.
