Aaron Lazar is on the fast track to becoming one of entertainment's greatest young leading men. As the highly amusing and surprisingly touching Count Carl-Magnus, he starred opposite 2 winning pairs of leading ladies Catherine Zeta-Jones & Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters & Elaine Stritch in the first ever Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music. Prior to that, this native of Cherry Hill, New Jersey made his Broadway debut in The Phantom of the Opera, then continued to appear on Broadway in the revival of Oklahoma, A Tale of Two Cities, The Light in the Piazza at Lincoln Center and on PBS, the world premiere of Impressionism opposite Jeremy Irons, Joan Allen, & Marsha Mason, and the revival of Les Miserables for which Aaron's powerhouse performance as Enjolras garnered him critical acclaim and a Drama Desk Award nomination.
In addition to his critically acclaimed performance as Lt. Cable in South Pacific at the Hollywood Bowl conducted by Paul Gemignani, and his star turn as Billy Bigelow with the Boston Pops under Keith Lockhart, Aaron has been a guest artist with some of the worlds best orchestras including: the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall under David Charles Abell, the Cincinnati Pops under the late maestro Erich Kunzel, the Philadelphia Pops under Peter Nero, the National Symphony Orchestra under Marvin Hamlisch, the English National Opera orchestra under Simon Lee, and The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall under Steven Reineke for the 80th Birthday Celebration of Stephen Sondheim. Aaron has also appeared with Barry Manilow at Madison Square Garden and the Mandelay Bay resort Las Vegas. Upcoming performances include his hit solo concert at Feinsteins at the Lowe's Regency in Manhattan and at The Kennedy Center and the debut concert of maestro Steve Reineke with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in October of 2011.
