Broadway In Chicago, known as one of the largest commercial touring homes in the country, brings to the stage another classic play: “Hello, Dolly!”
Let’s Play is excited to introduce to Chicago Defender the talented Brandon L. Whitmore. Brandon received training at Ann Broadie’s Carolina Ballet and is a graduate of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He has also studied at Centre National de la Danse in Paris, France and at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp in Antwerp, Belgium.
Brandon has gained experience at notable institutions such as The American Ballet Theater, The Rock School for Dance Education, Joffrey Ballet School, and Ballet Austin and trained at the Alvin Ailey School. This experience ultimately helped him received the Image Award from The Dance Theater of Harlem.
Brandon is a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Association and is currently in the First National Tour of “Hello, Dolly!” Let’s Play would like to thank Broadway in Chicago for providing us access to Brandon.
Casting has been announced for the first national tour of the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival of Hello, Dolly! The tour, starring Tony Award winner Betty Buckley, will begin performances September 30 in the Connor Palace at Cleveland's Playhouse Square, ahead of an official opening night on October 5.
