Claybourne Elder to Reunite With Sunday in the Park Costar Brynn O'Malley in New Cabaret
The pair appeared in the Sondheim favorite in 2015 at Arlington, Virginia's Signature Theatre.
Brynn O'Malley, who appeared as Dot opposite Claybourne Elder's George in Signature Theatre's 2015 revival of Sunday in the Park With George, will reunite to sing "Move On" in Elder's upcoming cabaret at Feinstein's/54 Below.
Music direction for the evening will be provided by Matt Castle, who will also play piano alongside Larry Lelli on percussion, Lloyd Kikoler on bass, and Jonathan Linden on guitar.
As previously announced, Broadway veteran Elder will make his solo debut with the show on February 19 at 7pm. The cabaret is described as follows:
"In this candid show, Clay won't just sing show tunes and share reminiscences about the theater, but also reflections on travel, adventure, romance — along with what it felt like to get shot in the head eight times a week in Bonnie and Clyde and playing a 19 year-old at 32 on television. He'll bring along some bizarre mementos from his career to show-and-tell and open up about his life growing up in rural Utah as a Mormon. Get intimate with one of New York's favorite theater personalities in this hilarious and heartfelt solo debut."
Elder made his Broadway debut in 2011 as Buck Barrow in the Frank Wildhorn musical Bonnie and Clyde. His other stage credits include Allegro, directed by John Doyle at Classic Stage Company, and his Drama Desk Award-nominated performance in Tennessee Williams' One Arm, directed by Moisés Kaufman. On television, he's best known for playing Pete O'Malley in The Carrie Diaries.
Elder's Bonnie and Clyde costar Melissa van der Schyff will also join him for the performance.
