BALTIMORE—November, 2009. Tony-nominated Euan Morton, best-known for his role as Boy George in the international hit musical, Taboo, returns after his rousing appearance in the 2009 CENTERSTAGE Gala to headline the second installment of the Cabaret Series.
The Scottish singer-songwriter and actor burst onto the American theater scene with his role in Boy George’s Taboo; his portrayal of a young Boy George garnered him international acclaim and both Tony and Olivier award nominations. Morton also played the lascivious lead role in the downtown cult musical Caligula: An Ancient Glam Epic; starred in Tony Kushner’s adaptation of the opera Brundibár; and grabbed the 2009 Bistro Award (New York City’s cabaret awards) for Outstanding Vocalist.
Morton’s cabaret set includes a wide variety of styles, from traditional songs to stage hits, contemporary rock, and music from his debut solo album, NewClear. Audio clips of his music can be heard online at www.centerstage.org.
