“At the end of the day, I’m a song and dance man,” says Matthew Morrison. Not that there was ever any doubt. Join The Phoenix Symphony, as the Emmy, Tony, and Golden Globe-nominated star comes to Mesa Arts Center. Matthew has risen to national prominence through his role as the perpetually optimistic high school teacher Will Schuester on Fox TV’s “Glee,” but the Southern California native was turning heads years earlier on the Great White Way. So it seems only appropriate that Morrison’s new album is a collection of standards, many first made famous in Broadway musicals. After studying musical theater, vocal performance and dance at Tisch School of The Arts in New York, Morrison made his debut on Broadway in “Footloose,” followed by “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” However, it was his role as Link Larkin in the original cast of the Broadway production of “Hairspray” that served as his breakthrough and led to Morrison being cast in the critically acclaimed “The Light In The Piazza.” His portrayal of young lover Fabrizio Naccarelli garnered him a Tony nomination for best performance by a featured actor in a musical. He subsequently received a Drama Desk nomination for outstanding actor in the off-Broadway musical “10 Million Miles” and reprised the role of Lieutenant Cable in Lincoln Center’s Tony-nominated production of “South Pacific.”
