Since the 1940s, the Baritone (with a capital “B”) has been the quintessential Broadway leading man. Now, two acclaimed baritones from divergent backgrounds join forces to pay tribute to the best of Broadway. This light-hearted evening looks at musical theatre’s greatest male roles, with a special emphasis on baritone duets, and features the works of Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman, Michael Valenti and others. Baritones Rocky Blumhagen and Ron Spivak are accompanied by Pianist Rick Modlin.

The performance will take place at Portland’s premier jazz club, Jimmy Mak’s on Monday, June 30, 2014; doors open at 5:30pm and the music begins at 6:30pm. Tickets are $25 for general seating.
