Award-winning Broadway star and recording artist David Burnham will celebrate—through stories and songs— the career of Sir Tom Jones, one of the most electrifying performers and iconic voices of the past five decades.
Two Valentine’s Weekend performances are scheduled for the Firehouse Arts Center Theater in Pleasanton, 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 14, and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15.
The production will feature the singer’s greatest hits, including “It’s Not Unusual,” “Delilah,” “What’s New Pussycat,” “Green, Green Grass of Home,” and “She’s A Lady,” accompanied by a live six-piece band, with musical director Todd Schroeder.
The show is described as a journey, rediscovering the passion and prowess that marked Tom Jones’ rise from mining-town factory worker in Wales to one of the biggest superstars in the musical world.
Burnham has been praised for his performance as “Fiyero” in the hit Broadway musical, “Wicked,” a role he originated in the show’s developmental workshops. He also was an original cast member for “The Light in The Piazza,” receiving the “Helen Hayes Award” and the “Garland Award” for best actor for his portrayal of “Fabrizio.”
Burnham’s first gained critical acclaim when he replaced Donny Osmond as “Joseph” in the national tour of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” “Joseph” was followed by another blockbuster national tour playing “Peter” in “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Last year he starred in a new Off-Broadway show, “The Best is Yet to Come – The Music of Cy Coleman.”
