Description: Franc D’Ambrosio’s Broadway - Songs of the ‘Great White Way’ is a fully scripted Broadway style production. The show contains entertaining, fun stories from Franc’s life blended with perfect musical numbers that provide colorful illustration. The sheer power of the program is a brilliant performer with a gorgeous voice, incredible charisma and the simple accompaniment of piano. Featuring such hits as Lullaby of Broadway, Not While I’m Around, Music of the Night and Bring Him Home, Franc’s voice and style will bring the music and stories of Broadway theatre to life. He is best known for his portrayal of the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom Of The Opera, affectionately known as Phantom's "The Iron Man of The Mask." Franc was awarded the distinction as the "Worlds Longest Running Phantom," a title he held for over a decade. Franc’s resume also includes an Academy Award nominated film, an Emmy Award nominated television show, a four-time Tony nominated Broadway show, two Grammy considerations, and a National Theatre Award nomination. Early in his career, Paramount Pictures sent five talent scouts on a two year international search, which ended when they discovered D'Ambrosio in the chorus of his first Broadway show. Francis Ford Coppola immediately cast him as Anthony Corleone, the opera singing son of Al Pacino and Diane Keaton in Coppola's seven-time Academy Award nominated film Godfather III. Franc starred in it and sang the Academy Award winning theme song, Speak Softly Love (Brucia la Terra). Franc D'Ambrosio has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe and South America with his critically acclaimed one man shows.
