"Brent Barrett possesses one of the most beautiful voices in contemporary theatre…" Boston Globe
"His songs and stories show off a humble personality and a wide-ranging voice that draws you in on both vibrant, up-tempo numbers and tender ballads". Herald Tribune
The popular and very talented Broadway star Brent Barrett makes his London cabaret debut with his show NIGHT SONGS at The Crazy Coqs. No stranger to the West End - he received an Olivier nomination for his performance in the London company of Kiss Me, Kate and has appeared here in Wonderful Town, Grand Hotel and On the Town - his show focuses on all that happens after sundown... featuring songs about the moon, dreams and everything nocturnal, by Billy Joel, Stephen Schwartz, Jimmy Webb, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jule Styne, Alan J Lerner and Stephen Sondheim.
Think everything from Music of the Night to Rhythm of the Night to You and the Night and Music - and you are on the right track. A highly personal show, he weaves in stories about his Broadway life, the great Broadway legends he has met along the way, and growing up in a small town in Kansas, in a house wedged between the highway and the railroad.
Brent has starred on Broadway in Chicago, Annie Get Your Gun, Grand Hotel, West Side Story and Candide. He played a two-year stint in the title role of Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular and most recently was Captain Hook opposite Cathy Rigby's Peter Pan. Before that, he reprised his role as Billy Flynn in the Tony Award-winning hit Chicago - The Musical, for which he received a Los Angeles drama Critics Award.
