Tony-award winning Brian Stokes Mitchell, leading man extraordinaire, star of Man of La Mancha, Kiss Me Kate, and Ragtime, appeared in his concert rendition of LOVE/LIFE, A Life in Song, his one-man show (with a four-piece jazz ensemble). Mr. Mitchell (or Stokes, as he likes to be called) has the rich voice and grand presence of stars of old abetted by a twinkle of the eye and a contemporary sexy edge.

LOVE/LIFE mixed classics of the American songbook and Broadway canon with Stokes's personal favorites. In the 85-minute show he sings Cole Porter, Lerner and Loewe, and the Gershwins, among others, adding a jazzy twist here, a personal aside there... And, he sang for the first time as himself—other than in the voice of the famed characters he's portrayed.
