Broadway actor, singer and songwriter Marcus Paul James brings a night of R&B to the 54 Below stage in his show Love and Soul. With Brian Whitted leading the band, Marcus turns the stage into a soulfest with a mix of Broadway, covers and original tunes – out to prove that the modern-day balladeers and crooners are still alive and well.
Marcus was last seen in the off-Broadway revival of Rent, where he reprised his role of Mr. Jefferson and “Seasons of Love” soloist. Before that, he was a part of the Broadway closing casts of the Tony Award-winning shows In the Heights and Rent, as well the movie Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway. Marcus has released two albums of his own music, as well as been featured on multiple up-and-coming composer albums, including Scott Alan and Bobby Cronin.
“Marcus’ music is able to break the barrier and rise to the top of the music heap. Upon listening to Marcus sing, you’ll notice that he’s a bit fresh and old-school at the same time. Evoking memories of my favorite singer Luther Vandross, Marcus’ soulful delivery and style is one that I wish would return in droves to the music scene…” – Delious Kennedy,Breakout Magazine
Come sit back, get a drink and enjoy Broadway, R&B and soul with Marcus and his amazing friends.
