“Mr. Reid’s singing…evokes both Cab Calloway and Bobby Short.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Singer and Broadway star T. Oliver Reid makes his AUPAC debut with his Bistro Award-winning show Drop Me Off in Harlem—a club-hopping journey through the elegant nightclubs and working-class speakeasies of 1934 Harlem, using the music of Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen, Andy Razaf and more as a guide. Funny, informative and a consummate showman, Reid performs each number with the unmistakable dramatic flair of a musical theater veteran (seen most recently on Broadway in the critically acclaimed After Midnight), and provides an overview of the clubs,musicians and social context of the music. As he says in his show, “In 1934, on a Saturday night in New York City, if you were boozin’ and jazzin’, you were doing it in Harlem.” Eighty years later, we’re doing it here at AUPAC.
T. Oliver Reid brings a lifelong love of musical theater to the stage with such Broadway credits as Chicago, Kiss Me Kate, Damn Yankees, After Midnight and the 25th anniversary concert of Dreamgirls. Winner of the Metropolitan Room’s “2010 Metrostar Challenge,” he was also a featured artist in the 21st New York Cabaret Convention the same year. His passion for music has led him to share the stage with some of Broadway’s top performers including Robert Goulet, Jane Krakowski, Blythe Danner and Bryan Stokes Mitchell.
