The 92nd Street Y, New York Presents
JOSHUA HENRY’S GET UP STAND UP!
Saturday, November 18, 7:30 pm
Tickets from $45
Grammy Award winner and triple Tony nominee Joshua Henry has dazzled Broadway audiences as Aaron Burr in Hamilton, starring opposite Audra McDonald in Shuffle Along, and in his Tony nominated run as Billy Bigelow in the hit revival of Carousel. Now Joshua Henry – a Lyrics & Lyrics™ veteran – returns to 92NY for the only New York City performance of Get Up Stand Up, a concert experience Henry describes as “a soulful bop through the songs that have moved and grooved us through the decades.” Get Up Stand Up is in person on Saturday, November 18 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available here.
Get Up Stand Up showcases Henry’s artistry in swinging naturally from the classic soul of Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, and Sam Cooke to Broadway gems by Stephen Sondheim and Rodgers & Hammerstein, and material from his own solo album and upcoming musical projects.
“I want audiences to experience a couple of things when I perform. I want them to celebrate, and I want them to heal. I want to make that my trademark. I’d love it if those two words could be synonymous with Joshua Henry the artist,” comments Henry. “So, whether it’s music from the ten Broadway shows I’ve done or music I’ve written straight from the heart, this performance will show every side of me.”
