Country Music Star Gary Morris Joins Soul Doctor Musical

Grammy Award-winning singer and Broadway veteran Gary Morris will join the cast of the musical Soul Doctor, which will begin its pre-Broadway run in Miami Beach at the Colony Theater, December 24-January 8, and in Ft. Lauderdale at Parker Playhouse, January 10-29.

Soul Doctor is a musical journey through the challenge and triumphs of the father of popular Jewish music, Shlomo Carlebach. . It chronicles his meteoric rise as a “Rock Star-Rabbi” in the 1960s, performing with Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead; his struggle to reconcile his deep traditional roots with his desire to reach people of all backgrounds in the “free-love generation;” and his personal conflicts trying to keep his family together while traversing the globe as a “Soul Doctor.”

Morris is best known for his original recording of “Wind Beneath My Wings.” He was also the recipient of Billboard’s New Male Artist of the Year in 1982. Morris was seen on Broadway as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables.
