The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra GLEEfully welcomes Emmy, Tony and Golden-Globe nominated star Matthew Morrison to the Hilbert Circle Theatre stage for this one-night-only performance.

Known for his role as the optimistic high school glee club director Will Schuester on the TV show Glee, Morrison is no stranger to a career filled with song and dance. Led by Principal Pops Conductor Jack Everly, Morrison joins the ISO to perform songs from his latest album, Where It All Began, featuring many Broadway hits such as “Younger Than Springtime” and standards made famous by Sinatra, including “Luck Be a Lady” and “The Lady Is a Tramp.”

Listen to Matt’s interview on the Smiley Morning Show!

Presented by Glee’s Mr Schuester, Matthew Morrison, at heart a true “Song and Dance” Man, telling the stories of some of Broadway’s Leading Men and Women.
How do you get to Carnegie Hall? … Practice
How do you get to Broadway?… Practice Harder!
Australian singer-songwriter Peter Allen wrote: “I’ll dance, I’ll sing, I’ll do anything just to get my name in lights”. Sounds a bit desperate doesn’t it? But if it’s your destiny you’ve got no choice.
It wasn’t Simon Cowell who began the world of celebrity it was the man who created Broadway over a hundred years ago; impresario Florenz Ziegfeld with his “Follies”.
From that moment the World of Entertainment changed, everyone wanted to be a star on Broadway, remember: “If you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere”.
The path to “The Great White Way” can be smooth – you can become an overnight sensation, like one of the hottest names on Broadway at the moment, Sutton Foster, plucked out of the obscurity of the Chorus Line to land the leading role of Millie. Or somewhat rocky like the household name Lucille Ball, who was so keen to star on 42nd Street, that she funded her own Show “Wildcat”!
Everyone’s journey is different including the presenter of this show. But like his character, he loves musical theatre and started life as a true song and dance man Matthew says: “It’s where my heart and history lies, it’s where it began.” He has one song that he’s used in every audition, including that of Mr Schu and it’s “On The Street Where You Live” from “My Fair Lady” but it’s “On The Street of Dreams” where we’ll be staying for two hours.

Long before became known as Will Schuester — the lovable Spanish teacher and show choir director on TV’s Glee — Matthew Morrison was dancing and singing, garnering Tony nods for his work on the Broadway stage.

Through it all, there was one song he always kept at the ready: “On the Street Where You Live” from My Fair Lady.

“It is actually the song I sang for every single audition I’ve ever had in my life, includingGlee; that is like my go-to audition song,” Morrison says. “It’s got a great story — it’s about a guy who is in love with a girl, but that girl doesn’t know or care that he’s alive. This guy is suffering, but he suffers so beautifully that you almost don’t want it to end. … It’s just good storytelling. You don’t find that in music so much these days. I feel like I can act these songs, and that’s a great power to have on stage.”

A pepped-up version of “On the Street Where You Live” appears on Where It All Began, Morrison’s second solo album of show tunes and American standards. He discusses it here with NPR’s Jacki Lyden.
