a truly interactive and entertaining experience,” Tutera
said. “I am thrilled Norm Lewis will open the show with a
wonderful new Dream

made show business history being the first African American
to play the title role in The

Little Mermaid, Les
Miserables, Chicago and Miss
Saigon. In the hit TV drama Scandal,

mark with multi-platinum recordings, Broadway shows, Disney
animated films and television scores. He is a frequent
performer on the Today show
with Kathie Lee and Hoda.

“something for everyone.” It also features the inspirational
