2010 - present

Evan Harrington just finished a great year playing Amos Hart in CHICAGO on Broadway: the longest-running American Musical in Broadway history! Prior to that he was 'The Baker' in the National Tour of Fiasco Theatre Company's acclaimed production of INTO THE WOODS.  

 

Evan also played the notorious "head" of the Harp Gang (Big Harp) in Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM after touring the U. S. of A.  for 2 + years with a merry bunch of troubadours in the TONY award winning musical, ONCE - where he played 'Billy', the lovelorn and lovable shop owner.

He appeared on Broadway in ONCE (again as Billy), and in PETER AND THE STARCATCHER (as the heroically flatulent pirate, Alf). He made his Broadway debut in AVENUE Q, (as lovable unemployed loser, Brian), and then was lucky enough to spend 3+ years in Broadway's longest running show, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, (as the arrogant Opera tenor, Ubaldo Piangi).

Some other favorite credits: John Hinckley, Jr. in ASSASSINS at Milwaukee Rep,  SWEENEY TODD, where he's played both The Beadle and Pirelli, THE FULL MONTY (Dave), INTO THE WOODS (Baker), Mary Zimmerman's CANDIDE, as well as appearances on 30 ROCK, and ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK.

 

Evan also sings in a Meat Loaf tribute show: singing the entirety of BAT OUT OF HELL cover-to-cover! (whenever he can 'get the band back together')...in the meantime, you can check out the videos on the Evan Harrington YouTube page.
