Culture Shock.

With Conor Ryan, Gizel Jimenez, musical director Michael O'Flaherty and Laurie Wells.

We all got a rave review in the Examiner for the Hartford Symphony Orchestra concert "70 YEARS OF TONY AWARD-WINNERS" but forgive me for quoting this paragraph....

"Tony Sheldon is a multi-award-winning actor whose unforgettable portrayal of Horace Vandergelder in Goodspeed Musicals’ Hello, Dolly! earned him the Connecticut Critics' Circle Award for Best Actor. Sheldon played the role of Bernadette in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert for 1750 performances in Australia, New Zealand, London, Toronto and on Broadway, winning the Theatre World Award and a nomination for the Tony Award as Best Actor in a Musical. With the Hartford Symphony backing him all the way he brought zany wit to The Music Man’s “Seventy Six Trombones” as he marched in step from one end of the stage to the other while leading both the show’s invisible boy’s band and the very real symphony orchestra simultaneously. In the second act, his My Fair Lady song “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face” was done with both poignancy and humor – the sign of a gifted actor/singer who understands every nuance in the lyric."
