Currently starring in “Rock and Roll Man” off-Broadway at New World Stages!
American Idol finalist and Tony Award nominee Broadway star of “Rock of Ages” and “Jekyll and Hyde”, Constantine Maroulis performs the hits of Broadway, from classic Sondheim to contemporary Wildhorn, with classic rock jams from Rock Of Ages sprinkled in! Accompanied by piano, Maroulis will delight with stories and songs in a very special, intimate performance.
Constantine Maroulis became a household name through his memorable run as a finalist on the fourth season of American Idol. His charisma, rock n’ roll edge, and astounding vocals entranced the judges, along with the 30 million viewers watching the show at home. His triumphant performances on Idol included some of the show’s most electrifying moments on TV, including his rendition of Queen’s epic “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
Constantine knew after American Idol he had a relatively limited window of opportunity to fortify his career. “I went into survival mode—I knew nothing would be handed to me,” he
confides. It was by hustling, flying back and forth between New York and Los Angeles, working 12-hour days, that he began to make headway. A show called Rock of Ages with an unknown cast and unknown creatives came knocking. It had a great program of classic songs and Constantine was instantly drawn in by the concept and signed on. The show enjoyed a highly successful run as one of the highest-grossing Broadway shows of all time, culminating in a myriad of awards and critical acclaim for Constantine including a Tony Award nomination, and firmly establishing him as a world-class performer. Constantine then went on to receive a Drama League Award nomination for the Distinguished Performance Award for Rock of Ages, as well as his work on the show Jekyll and Hyde. “In a way, there are two mes—the guy driving the van and trailer, and the guy onstage in front of millions. I want to be like a great utility player on a baseball team and play every position on the field. That feels honorable,” he says.
Constantine’s clout is growing on Broadway, as his name is attached to many upcoming projects both as producer and actor. Recently Constantine served as a producer on the Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Deaf West’s Spring Awakening.
Join us at the Sieminski Theater for this one night only, intimate evening of music and stories.
