WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fresh from his Tony Award-winning, nightly show-stopping performance in as the beloved Genie in Disney's Aladdin, as well as Broadway performances in Memphis and Spelling Bee, James Monroe Iglehart makes his 54 Below debut with How the Heck Did I Get Here? James relives his obsession with being cool, getting girls and a becoming a star told through funny childhood stories and songs ranging from R&B, Hip-Hop, Gospel and Broadway (and maybe a country tune!). CBS New York says that "Iglehart's performance is a classic example of traditional song-and-dance Broadway brilliance. His charisma shines almost as bright as his smile, and he has created a genie that you never want to leave the stage. It's Iglehart's warmth that seems to leap off the stage and into the delighted hearts of lucky theatergoers of all ages, warmth that is so charming and so magnetic that it's almost palpable." Come see the "fun-loving, fast-talking, smooth-singing Genie" that all of Broadway is talking about!
