Seth Rudetsky's Big Fat Broadway Show
Sirius/XM radio’s Broadway host Seth Rudetsky is bringing his hilarious one-man show to Rochester! Seth's Big Fat Broadway Show is described as a combination of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “The Tony Awards,” and “The Daily Show”. The 90 minute tour-de-force features Rudetsky’s trademark “deconstructions,” in which he uses his amazing audio/video collection to break down brilliant performances from beloved Broadway divas (Patti LuPone, Betty Buckley) as well as showcase mind-boggling videos like The Osmonds singing a medley from Fiddler On The Roof. Seriously. He does an entire section on Barbra Streisand, who actually came to the show in Los Angeles … and loved it! This award-winning show recently played to a sold-out crowd in London where it received 5-star reviews and was called “Blindingly brilliant” “Fantastic” “Hysterical,” a “must-see,” and “Nothing short of brilliant!”
Seth is the afternoon host on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s ON BROADWAY as well as the host of SETH SPEAKS on Sirius/XM Stars. As a pianist, Seth has played for more than a dozen Broadway shows including RAGTIME, LES MIZ and PHANTOM. He was the Artistic Producer/Music Director for the first five annual Actors Fund Fall Concerts including DREAMGIRLS with Audra MacDonald (recorded on Nonesuch Records) and HAIR with Jennifer Hudson (recorded on Ghostlight Records, Grammy Nomination). In 2007 he made his Broadway acting debut playing Sheldon (singing “Magic to Do” in a devastating unitard) in THE RITZ directed by Joe Mantello for The Roundabout Theater. Off-Broadway he wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed RHAPSODY IN SETH (directed by Peter Flynn) at the Actors Playhouse and has also appeared on TV on LAW AND ORDER C.I. and had a recurring role on ALL MY CHILDREN.
