The Broadway favorite is offering Norm Lewis: Summertime (Special Tony Edition) June 6–8 and June 10–12, all at 7 PM. The concerts feature direction by Richard Jay-Alexander with musical direction by Joseph Joubert. Perry Cavari is featured on percussion and drums with Dylan Shamat on bass.

The all-Broadway song list includes tunes from Lewis' Main Stem outings as well as Broadway songs that inspired him and a few from musicals the actor hasn't had the chance to perform in.

Lewis earned a 2012 Tony nomination for his performance in The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess. In 2014 he had the distinction of becoming the first African-American actor to play the title role in Broadway’s The Phantom of the Opera.
