Seattle Men's Chorus welcomes 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Tituss Burgess at first two 'Home for the Holidays' concerts

Artistic Director Dennis Coleman prepares for his final holiday concert at Benaroya Hall Nov. 28 - Dec. 21

Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC) is thrilled to announce the addition of 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Tituss Burgess to this season's first two holiday concerts. For 'Home for the Holidays,' artistic director Dennis Coleman is pulling out all his 'naughty and nice' song favorites and preparing for his final holiday season conducting the Chorus. Featured songs include SMC's beloved 'Ave Maria' and 'Silent Night,' as well as new tunes such as 'Text Me Merry Christmas.' The addition of Tituss Burgess to the first two Seattle concerts, on November 28th and 29th, will add an extra dash of fairy dust to this treasured yuletide tradition. [Watch for an exclusive interview with Tituss Burgess in next Friday's SGN.]

Tituss Burgess made his Broadway debut a decade ago. Since then he has performed in Good Vibrations, Jersey Boys, The Little Mermaid (Sebastian the Crab) and Guys and Dolls (Nicely Nicely Johnson). His shift to television started in Tina Fey's Emmy-winning, NBC series, '30 Rock,' in the role of 'D'Fwan,' Sherri Shepherd's character's hairdresser and cohort. He became a fan-favorite and re-teamed with Fey for her follow-up comedy series, 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.' This wildly popular Netflix series was recently nominated for an Emmy as 'Best Comedy Series.' Burgess stars as Kimmy's scene-stealing roommate Titus Andromedon; for this role he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Emmy, received the Best Actor award at the 2015 Webby Awards, and was nominated for a 2015 Critics' Choice TV Award in the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category. Burgess' other television credits include 'A Gifted Man,' 'Blue Bloods' and 'Royal Pains.' Burgess released a solo album titled Comfortable in 2012, and has toured to performance venues across the globe.

For a quick video recap of Titus Andromedon's quick-witted responses and fantabulously flashy banter in 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,' go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ul2TeMUk4UY&feature=youtu.be

For 36 seasons SMC has presented their unique blend of song, dance and campy comedy to the Northwest. They have solidified their role as Seattle's most welcoming celebration of the season; and this year's concert comes with a new level of nostalgia as artistic director Dennis Coleman, after 35 years with Seattle Men's Chorus, prepares for retirement in the summer of 2016.

As in years past, SMC will hold an Everett and Tacoma area concert. Details for those two concerts are online at www.seattlemenschorus.org. For the fourth consecutive year, SMC is proud to partner with Lifelong for a Holiday Food Drive during the Seattle concerts at Benaroya Hall. All non-perishable goods will be accepted and will be used in Lifelong's food program supporting people living with chronic illnesses, including HIV/AIDS.

Tickets to Seattle performances are $25-$78. Tickets to the Everett performance are $25-45. Both Seattle and Everett concert tickets are available at www.SeattleMensChorus.org or over the phone at (206) 388-1400. The Seattle area box office is open Monday through Friday 11am - 6pm. Tacoma concert tickets are $19-$69 and available at BroadwayCenter.org.
