Seth has worked on Broadway for over twenty-five years and his recent book “Musical Theatre For Dummies” just made the NY TIMES HOLIDAY BUYING GUIDE. Since this is Vegas, Seth is willing to bet that you’ll leave the show being obsessed with stars like Sutton Foster, Patti LuPone, Alex Newell, Betty Buckley, Ben Platt, Audra McDonald, Donna McKechnie and Chita Rivera and immediately book yourself a redeye to NYC to see a Broadway musical! And the evening isn’t just about being blown away by the brilliance of Broadway stars…it will also be chock full Seth’s hilarious comedy. There’s a reason why he was voted “NY Funniest Gay Male” at StandUp NY and you’ll find out why when he gives his running commentary on Cher’s performance in West Side Story where she proudly plays Maria, Anita…the Sharks…and the Jets! SERIOUSLY!
Whether you’re a total insider Broadway fan or you think Carol Channing is related to Channing Tatum, this is the evening for you!
When Broadway shut down, Seth and his native Texan husband James Wesley started hosting the livestream Stars In The House which raises money for The Entertainment Community Fund (formerly The Actors Fund). So far they’ve raised over $1.2 million dollars and recently celebrated their three year anniversary of the show. Before that, Seth spent many years on Broadway as a pianist and conductor as well as two years as a comedy writer on THE ROSIE O’DONNELL SHOW (three Emmy nominations with his co-writers). He is now the afternoon deejay on the SiriusXM Broadway channel as well the host of SETH SPEAKS. He’s performed his show, DECONSTRUCTING BROADWAY in London, Boston (Irne award) and L.A. (with Barbra Streisand in the audience!). He co-wrote and co-starred in DISASTER! (NY TIMES critics’ pick) on Broadway which was licensed by Music Theater International and is being performed around the country. He’s written the books SETH’S BROADWAY DIARY VOLUME 1 and 2 (Dress Circle publishing) and has also authored two young adult novels; “MY AWESOME/AWFUL POPULARITY PLAN” and “THE RISE AND FALL OF A THEATER GEEK” (Random House) and the just available MUSICAL THEATRE FOR DUMMIES. Seth and James co-produced the “What The World Needs Now Is Love” recording with Broadway Records (number one on iTunes) featuring amazing singers like Jessie Mueller, Carole King, Audra MacDonald, Lin-Manuel Miranda and so many more to help the victims and families of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting. He and James also produce and host the yearly “Voices For The Voiceless” concert to benefit You Gotta Believe which helps older foster kids find families (stars have included Tina Fey and Megan Hilty) as well as producing/hosting 13 Concert For America benefits which help non-profits like National Immigration Law Center and NAACP (stars have included Barry Manilow and Chita Rivera). James and Seth run “Seth’s Big Fat Broadway Cruise” which brings Broadway stars and Broadway lovers together to fabulous destinations!
