Ramin Karimloo: Broadway to Bluegrass Monday, May 20, 2013 Doors: 6:30 pm / Show: 8:00 pm $25.00 + Processing Fees In the world of theatrical performers Ramin Karimloo is known as one of the most formidable talents in the industry. Heralded for his portrayal of leading roles Jean Valjean in Les Mirerables and the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, Karimloo is a musical force unlike any other. In fact, it was his unbridald reputation that led to his performance in the recent Oscar tribute to Les Misérables. Ramin was hand picked by Andrew Lloyd Weber to portray the lead role in his sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Weber's Love Never Dies. He originated the role of Phantom in this sequel, a role that won him the prestigious Theatregoer’s Choice Award and the award for Best Actor in a musical. Ramin also played the role of Enjolras in the “25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables” at The O2 Arena in London where it has been one of the most widely viewed shows in PBS history. Ramin’s debut album, “Human Heart”, is a summary of his life journey. “I have a huge love for country and bluegrass; I love rock ’n’ roll; and I love what I’m doing in musical theatre, so the key was how to balance and blend them all,” Ramin said. “I didn’t want to be just a theater star putting out an album. I wanted to have lived the songs. I wanted an album that was like a diary,” he reflects. Citing influences as diverse as The Tragically Hip, Johnny Cash, Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers, a typical musical theater album was never a possibility. “I wanted to marry the sounds of rock and country with things that people already know me for.” In his album, “Human Heart” Ramin found the perfect marriage, and in his own term “Broadgrass.”
