THE GREEN ROOM 42 has announced that their sold-out residency for Reeve Carney, star of Broadway’s Hadestown, has been extended through December 2019. His upcoming concerts will take place October 6, October 20, November 17, and December 29, all Sundays at 9:30 PM. All shows will highlight original songs from Carney’s five-time Independent Music Award-winning album, Youth Is Wasted, but select performances will include special musical tributes to David Bowie (October 6), Billy Joel (October 20), and Elton John (November 17).
Hadestown – Anaïs Mitchell’s new musical directed by Rachel Chavkin, currently in performance at the Walter Kerr Theatre – is now the winner of 8 Tony Awards, including “Best Musical.” Carney himself was nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award for “Outstanding Actor in a Musical” and two Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards, including “Favorite Leading Actor in a Musical.” Carney’s performance in Hadestown has garnered stellar reviews. Rolling Stone hailed him as “angel-voiced,” The Hollywood Reporter called him a “dreamy delicacy,” Time Out New York praised his “otherworldly high-tenor,” and WFUV Radio raved about his “gorgeous, gentle voice.” According to New York Stage Review, his “keening tenor reaches to a startlingly clear, pure falsetto.”
Reeve Carney originated the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the record-breaking Broadway musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. A lifelong musician, Reeve jumped at the opportunity to perform a score by U2’s Bono and The Edge-not to mention re-team with director Julie Taymor, who he’d worked with in her film, The Tempest. In 2013, however, Carney finally hung up his Spidey suit and headed to Dublin for Showtime’s buzzed-about John Logan/Sam Mendes series, “Penny Dreadful,” in which he played reckless hedonist Dorian Gray. Carney’s latest album, Youth is Wasted, was recorded primarily in his New York apartment. In an upcoming Jeff Buckley biopic, Carney will play the late singer, marrying his love of music and acting. Reeve becoming a performer was all but a foregone conclusion: almost everybody in his family works in the arts. His great-uncle was actor Art Carney. His jewelry designer mother has a degree from Cincinnati College- Conservatory of Music, his father wrote jingles.
