David Tutera Adds Tony Nominee Norm Lewis to Dream Bigger Tour
Lewis will open for the reality TV star in Stamford.
Reality TV star and celebrity event planner David Tutera has added Tony nominee Norm Lewis to his Dream Bigger Tour. The Broadway veteran will join as Tutera's special guest for one performance only on August 26 at the Palace Theatre for the Performing Arts.
Tutera, star of WE tv's CELEBrations, describes the event as "a festive hybrid of talk show and live theater." He interviews guests, oversees a makeover, conducts a question-and-answer session, and offers inspirational anecdotes from his own career. Lewis will open the August 26 show with a new song composed by David Friedman.
Lewis earned a Tony nomination in 2012 for his performance in The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess and returned to the stage in 2015 as Broadway's first-ever African-American Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera. His other Broadway credits include Sondheim on Sondheim, The Little Mermaid, Les Misérables, Amour, The Wild Party, Side Show, Chicago, The Who's Tommy, and Miss Saigon. Lewis is also widely known for his role as Senator Edison Davis on ABC's Scandal.
