An Evening with Leslie Odom Jr
The Tony-awarding winning Best Actor of the Broadway smash musical "Hamilton" will present an evening of music from the show as well as from his Billboard Jazz chart #1 album. He is a Grammy Award winner as a principal soloist on the "Hamilton" Original Broadway Cast Recording, which won the 2015 award for Best Musical Theater Album. Odom Jr. originated the role of Aaron Burr in a sold-out run at The Public Theater in 2015, which then moved to Broadway, earning a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical and a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Musical.

Odom Jr. made his Broadway debut at the age of 17 in "Rent," before heading to Carnegie Mellon University's prestigious School of Drama, where he graduated with honors. He is the recipient of a 2002 Princess Grace Award for Acting, which is dedicated to identifying emerging talent in theater, dance and film.

Additional theatre credits include "Leap of Faith" on Broadway, for which he won the 2012 Astaire Award for Outstanding Male Dancer on Broadway and was nominated for a Drama League Award; the 2014 musical "Venice," which also played at The Public Theater; and the Encores! Off-Center production of "Tick, Tick... Boom!," which was his first time working with "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

On the small screen, Odom Jr. is best-known for his portrayal of Sam Strickland in the NBC musical series "Smash," and his recurring role as Reverend Curtis Scott on "Law & Order: SVU." He's also appeared in episodes of "Gotham," "Person of Interest," "Grey's Anatomy," "House of Lies," "Vanished" and "CSI: Miami." On the big screen he starred in the 2012 film "Red Tails" opposite Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and David Oyelowo, and will be seen in the upcoming remake of "Murder on the Orient Express" with Kenneth Branagh. You may also recognize him from his Nationwide Insurance national commercials.

As a recording artist, his self-titled debut album was part-funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised $40,971. The album was released in 2014 by Borderlight Entertainment, Inc. He released the holiday album, "Simply Christmas," in late 2016.
