Broadway actor and musician Tony Yazbeck will perform an evening of classic show tunes, new standards and dazzling tap dancing.

Since his Broadway debut as a newsboy in the 1989 revival of Gypsy, quintessential song-and-dance man Tony Yazbeck has continued to win critical acclaim, including a Tony Award nomination for the leading role in On the Town (2014).

He recently debuted his solo show with Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series inviting audiences to join him on an honest, emotional journey along life’s ups and downs.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
