Paul Slade Smith
2016's exciting news:
• On June 7th, Paul took over the dual roles of Charles Frohman and Captain Hook in Finding Neverland on Broadway. Paul was with the Broadway production from its opening in April of 2015 (he originated the role of Mr. Henshaw) and was thrilled at the opportunity to end the original run of this beautiful show as J.M. Barrie's right-hand man (and imaginary pirate).
• August gave Paul an additional chance to be Captain Hook - in Transport Group's one-night-only "Peter Pan in Concert". As part of this hugely successful presentation of the 1954 musical, Paul got to perform - with a full orchestra - three numbers originated by Cyril Ritchard, both as Hook and Mr. Darling. See the Audio/Video page for highlights from the concert.
• Ragtime on Ellis Island: on August 8th, Paul joined a star-studded cast for a concert of the amazing, goose bump-inducing score of Ragtime, performed on historical Ellis Island. For more on the concert, visit the production's website.
