An Evening With Hamilton Alumnus Christopher Jackson
Renee Fleming continues her VOICES series at the Kennedy Center with a special one-night-only performance by Broadway royalty Christopher Jackson. Perhaps best known for originating the role of George Washington in the Lin-Manuel Miranda-penned mega hit Hamilton, the Tony nominated triple-threat performer rose through the ranks, playing leading roles in Broadway tuners After Midnight, Memphis and The Lion King amongst others, as well as Miranda's first foray onto the Great White Way Into The Heights.
A powerhouse performer and creative whirlwind, Jackson has also lent his sonorous timbre to animated adventure Moana and written songs for LL Cool J, Will.I.Am and Sesame Street, earning three Emmy Award nominations in the process. Performing an array of musical theatre classics, from old favorites to the hip hop-tinged show tunes that have made his career, Jackson will no doubt have a colorful story or two to share about his multi-faceted, ever growing career in Terrace Theater's intimate atmosphere.
