“The last leading man” comes to Hancher Auditorium to perform with University of Iowa student musicians under the baton of Dr. William LaRue Jones. A star of the Broadway stage (Man of La Mancha, Ragtime, Kiss Me Kate, Shuffle Along) and screen (Trapper John, M.D., Frasier, Glee, The Blacklist), Brian Stokes Mitchell possesses what the New York Times calls “a singularly thunderous baritone.” He and his trio will join the UI Symphony Orchestra, which will provide a lush setting for Stokes’s luscious voice.


W. A. Mozart:  Concerto for Two Pianos, K365

Broadway's Best: Brian Stokes Mitchell bringing Tony-winning ways to Hancher stage
The Gazette - Friday, March 23, 2018
When stage and screen star Brian Stokes Mitchell shares the Hancher spotlight with the University of Iowa Symphony Orchestra on Wednesday night, he’s going to “give these students the experiences of a lifetime,” Hancher['s] Chuck Swanson said. “Those students will leave here remembering that. “That’s a lot of what Hancher and the university are about — student success, creating opportunities for students to have experiences that change our lives.” Likewise, Mitchell is hoping to count Hancher among his favorite places.
