Broadway Star Norm Lewis
Broadway star Norm Lewis will visit Mercyhurst University in early November for a pair of events. In May 2014, Lewis made history as the first African American Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. He was seen earlier this year as Caiaphas in the NBC television special Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert!, and recently appeared in the Broadway revival of Once on This Island and as Sweeney Todd in the Off-Broadway production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Lewis will present a masterclass on Thursday, Nov. 1, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Walker Recital Hall. This event is free and open to the public; no tickets are required. He will also perform a solo concert on Friday, Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in Walker Recital Hall. Tickets for the concert are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors and $20 for youths.
