In this intimate evening, Sam will entertain the audience with selections from his new book, “Ham: Slices of a Life,” which releases January 2014. Called “New Yorker-worthy,” by The New York Times, Harris’ 16 humorous stories and essays discuss friendship, celebrity, growing up and getting sober.
After winning STAR SEARCH in its premiere season, Harris and his powerhouse pop, gospel and theater-influenced vocals have never looked back. He is a multi-platinum recording artist with 9 studio CDs to his credit.
On Broadway, Sam received a Drama Desk nomination for his role in the Tommy Tune-directed revival of GREASE. He was also nominated for a Drama League Award, a Tony Award, an Outer Critic’s Circle Award and a Drama Desk Award for his work in Cy Coleman’s THE LIFE. He’s also appeared on Broadway in Mel Brooks’ THE PRODUCERS, in the national tour of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT and in the musicals JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, CABARET, HAIR and PIPPIN. Currently, Sam is preparing for the long-awaited production of THE BROADWAY MAN, in which he stars as the darkly complex and charismatic Al Jolson.
A book signing will follow Sam Harris’ performance, with books provided by Rainy Day Books. To reserve a Hardcover of Ham: Slices of a Life: Essays and Stories for at-Event pick-up, Call Rainy Day Books at 913-384-3126 or visit RainyDayBooks.com
