At a live concert presented by Guild Hall in East Hampton Cheyenne Jackson announced his recent nuptials to his long time companion Monte Lapka. The revelation came mid point of his intimate concert at the John Drew Theater, where Mr. Jackson gave us a peek into what must be his treasure trove of memories.
The gifted star of NBC’s 30 Rock and the Fox hit TV show GLEE was an exciting presence that grew in stature with each song. After the candid tale about his private wedding Jackson was sitting on the edge of the stage delivering a moving cover of Coldplay’s "The Scientist."
The evening was a winning mix of rarely performed theater songs spun out with Cheyenne’s captivating charm. Cheyenne’s clean cut good looks dares you to be naughty when he cuts loose on "Old Devil Moon," and then he touches your heart with an hauntingly rich "What A Wonderful World," asking us to remember those who are no longer with us.
Jackson closed out the evening on a high note, with a stirring Sam Cooke classic "A Change Is Gonna Come." leaving the audience wanting more, I’m sure. His solo Carnegie Hall concert debut with the NY Pops takes place on November 18, 2011.
