Dubbed the “last leading man” by the New York Times, Mitchell is best known for his Broadway performances in Kiss Me, Kate and Porgy and Bess, among others, as well as his work in shows such television shows as “Glee” and “Frasier.”

Hancher Programming Director Jacob Yarrow said Hancher was excited to have such an acclaimed performer on its program.

“Hancher has a long history as a Broadway presenter, and this is a great opportunity to present one of the great Broadway performers of our time,” he said.

Mitchell is hailed for having a rich baritone voice and a chameleonic performing ability.

“He really is an incredible singer, but he also does songs in character and really brings everyone into the sort of feel of a Broadway show,” Yarrow said. “The performance will be supremely entertaining.”

Ticket prices for the show range from $10 for students and youth to $42 for general public.
