Mike Wartella: Folk rock, original music and Broadway
August 6 @ 7:00 pm
Broadway and Berkshire County’s Mike Wartella makes his Berkshire Theatre Group solo debut hosting a night of folk rock, original music, and Broadway favorites reimagined. Mike, who is originally from The Berkshires and a singer/songwriter at heart, will fill the evening with brand new original music straight from his new debut solo album, Polarity, as well as some old Broadway favorites done with a folk/rock twist.
As a Broadway veteran, Mike has been seen playing children in Tuck Everlasting, Wicked and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He has also performed Off-Broadway in Rent, The Kid (The New Group), Seussical (TheaterworksUSA) and Oliver Twist (TFANA) and in Regional productions: Godspell (BTG); Chasing Rainbows (Paper Mill Playhouse, Flat Rock Playhouse, Goodspeed Opera House); Midsummer; A Prayer For Owen Meany (Denver Center Theatre Company). His television and film credits include: Mysteries of Laura, Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet and Loving Leah.
Mike’s folky edgy voice hardly matches his youthful type, so this summer he will take to the Stockbridge lawn to lead you through an evening, much closer to his grown up rocker roots. From his debut album, Mike will be previewing new original material, as well as some of his favorite folk-rock covers of “Pure Imagination” and “Round Here”, and his high-octane covers of “Midnight Radio,” “Scars” and “Wild Love”. This is a show you won’t want to miss.
