Fresh off of The Winter Park Playhouse Critic's Choice production run of Trav'lin: A 1930's Harlem Musical Romance, Johnathan Lee Iverson will grace the Playhouse Cabaret stage with a remarkable evening of song and storytelling. From his youthful days with The Boys Choir of Harlem to his notable historic tenure as Ringmaster of the original Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Johnathan will delight the audience with a wide selection of music from opera (Turandot, Fedora) to standards (Duke Ellington) to Broadway (Jekyll and Hyde, Man of La Mancha, Sideshow) and more!

Mr. Iverson has had a storied career in entertainment. For this special evening, he will invite one and all to travel with him through a musical odyssey of a boy with a dream, who lives a life bigger than he could have ever imagined. Johnathan will not only weave a riveting tale of his journey, but also perform a wide range of vocal selections that will showcase his performing excellence.

Locally, Johnathan has graced The Playhouse stage in both Crazy For Gershwin and Trav'lin and was voted Broadway World's best actor for his portrayal of Reverend Moore in A Tennessee Walk (Garden Theatre). He has also been a featured performer with Opera Orlando. Johnathan serves as Board Chair for Omnium Circus, has been named one of Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People, and has even been a question on JEOPARDY!
