He may have made his big mark with his arrival on Broadway in 2012 as Jesus in the revival of Jesus Christ Superstar, but last night Paul Alexander Nolan’s solo debut cabaret show at Feinstein’s/54 Below will now make him a superstar in nightclubs and solo concerts. With a voice that thrills, and is capable of affectively singing all genres of music from Freddy Mercury, Billy Joel, McCartney/Lennon, Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and even J. Fred Coots 1930’s “For All We Know “, and Eden Ahbez’s Nature Boy, Paul Alexander Nolan had a sensational entrance into the world of Cabaret. He’s a remarkable actor, musician (guitar) and singer who possesses a voice that can go anywhere over the musical spectrum in any octave and rhythm.
In this performance Paul was joined by Carmen Cusack (Tony nominee for Bright Star, Wicked) and his ONCE co-star Jessie Fisher.
Rick Fox, who Paul noted performs at everything that’s musically important in Canada was musical director/pianist leading an exciting band which included Paul’s wife Keely Hutton on back up vocals.
