“It’s not Cartell’s first time playing Prisoner 24601, and it shows — the tenor effortlessly shows off his thundering chest voice in the musical’s first act before transitioning to a bright falsetto as Valjean softens in a show-stopping rendition of “Bring Him Home”” – Variety

Nick Cartell, currently starring as Jean Valjean in the North American tour of Les Misérables in the iconic role he has now played over a thousand times, makes a triumphant return to 54 Below. An intimate evening filled with humor and heart bringing him back “home” to NYC, A Thousand Spotlights is the pre-release celebration for Nick’s forthcoming album of the same name! Available everywhere now for pre-sale and officially out on July 26, 2024 (Nick’s birthday!). The show features a collection of Cartell’s never-before-heard stories of his time on the road with Les Miz, Broadway runs of the 2012 revival of Jesus Christ SuperstarScandalous: The Musical, and Paramour, interwoven with songs from the album: Broadway, Disney, some jazz, and even some songs that didn’t make the cut.

The evening is arranged and music directed by Brian Eads (Les Misérables, the album A Thousand Spotlights), with special guests Phoenix Best (TeethLes MisérablesDear Evan HansenThe Color Purple) and Casey Likes (Back To The FutureAlmost Famous).
