Television and Broadway Star Tom Wopat in Concert
Best known for his starring role in the ’80s hit television series “The Dukes of Hazzard,” Tom Wopat is a multi-faceted entertainer who has enjoyed a career on stage and screen as well. From his high visibility Broadway roles in 1999’s Annie Get Your Gun and 2008’s A Catered Affair (he received Tony Award nominations for both), as well as Chicago, Forty-Second St., Sondheim on Sondheim and more to his latest album, I’ve Got Your Number, all it takes is a phrase or two from Tom Wopat’s warm, engaging baritone to trigger the desire to hear more. And the more one listens, the better it gets — from the way he finds the heart of a song’s story to his lyrical phrasing and his gently swinging, jazz-infused rhythms. “Tom Wopat, like Sinatra in his glory days, makes it all look easy and perfectly natural.” -Stephen Holden / NY Times
