As part of the Sierra Acura Summer Concert Series, the illustrious Pasadena POPS and Michael Feinstein are hosting a special event on September 6th entitled New York! New York! — and Aaron Tveit is scheduled to appear. As part of a one-night only concert, Aaron – alongside Patti Austin and Liz Callaway – will perform songs that “capture the snap swagger and energy” of New York City.
Held at the LA County Arboretum & Botanic Garden in Arcadia, CA, the concert will offer world-renowned singers as entertainment along with fine dining options. Guests are encouraged to either bring their own picnic fare or pre-order from a select list of partnered restaurants: Claude & Co., Julienne, and Marston’s. Several food trucks will also be available, along with a full cash bar and ice cream by Choctal.
Gates for picnicking open at 5:30pm. The concert will start at 7:30pm – rain or shine – and will last for approximately two hours with a brief intermission. The Pasadena POPS’ LA County Arboretum page has more information for those planning on attending, including out-of-towners who may want to book a deal at the partnered Langham Huntington hotel.
This is the final concert of the 2014 summer series, and the event is entirely open to the public. Should you be lucky enough to attend, ticket prices start at a very fair $20; if you want to reserve a spot at a table, it’s $42. To purchase your tickets, please visit Pasadena POPS’ official site; they will also be available to buy day-of at the venue.
If you’re looking for something to do on Thursday, the Manhattan Film Institute has got you covered. This year, as part of their Summer Film Camp, they are offering a Summer Film Series, in which multiple films are screened with commentary from special guests. MFI is teaming up with Peconic Landing Community Center in Greenport, New York to host this event.
On Thursday, July 17th, Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables will be screened at Peconic Landing as part of the Summer Film Series. As a special treat, Aaron Tveit will be at the event to talk about the Academy Award-winning movie-musical, including his filming experiences. Following the screening, Aaron will answer questions and provide commentary for the film, in which he played the student revolutionary, Enjolras. The screening starts at 7:30 pm.
(If you stick around Greenport, there will also be a screening for The Usual Suspects on July 19th.)
All of the Summer Film Series screenings are open to the public, and a single ticket to each event costs $15. You can purchase tickets on Peconic Landing’s website or call (631) 477-2583.
Broadway.com’s series “Show People” with Paul Wontorek returned today after a brief hiatus. The guest was, of course, Aaron Tveit, who made his third appearance on the show — and even answered some fan questions. The 30-minute interview can be viewed above, in which he talks about “Graceland,” dressing in drag, possible tattoos, and just how he hits those high notes. It’s a great interview – as “Show People” always provides – so make some room in your day to check it out.
(Many thanks to Aaron for giving ATN and affiliated accounts a shout-out on the show!)
On Monday, June 23rd, Aaron Tveit competed in a friendly game of softball as part of the 4th annual Bombers Boomer Broadway. Held at Yankee Stadium, the yearly event helps raise money for both the Boomer Esiason Foundation and The Actors Fund.
This time, Aaron joined the Bombers team — but, unfortunately, his team has seen better days. The Broadway Bombers lost against the Times Squares Slammers, 15-6. No worries, though: the event was for a great cause, and undoubtedly the players had a good time regardless of their score.
Pictures from the BBB have been added to the gallery. You can also find a brief clip of Aaron in a video below, which is part of actor James Snyder’s vlog series, “Hey Kid.” (Aaron appears at 9:18, for those who want to skip ahead.)
For the third time, Aaron Tveit is slated to make an appearance on Broadway.com‘s popular series, “Show People.” Once again, it will be hosted by super supporter (and Broadway.com Editor-in-Chief) Paul Wontorek. The new video will air on July 3rd, so mark your calendars and start counting down the days…
But wait, there’s more!
Because this is his third time on the show, the interview is going to be extra special. That’s when you, the fans, come in. If you’ve ever wanted to ask Aaron a question, now’s your chance. All you have to do is film a short video with your question, post it on Instagram, and tag it #AskAaron. The deadline is Thursday, June 26th at 3PM EST, so the sooner you get those videos uploaded, the better.
The very best questions will be considered and asked on “Show People,” so make them great! (That is, please be respectful but feel free to ask something creative, unique, and fun.)
Great news for those in New York: Aaron Tveit will once again be hitting Yankee Stadium at the fourth annual Bombers Boomer Broadway. The event will take place on Monday, June 23rd, and will help raise money for both the Boomer Esiason Foundation (aiding in the fight against cystic fibrosis) and The Actors Fund. Various Broadway stars are expected to attend (among them: Ramin Karimloo, Derek Klena, Betsy Wolfe, Bryce Pinkham, Constantine Maroulis) along with New York Yankee players.
Gates for the event will open at 9am, with the first game – “Broadway Celebrities” facing off – starting at 10am. The second game will feature Yankee Old Timers versus Boomer Esiason’s Sports Celebrities. Following that, there will be a luncheon reception for those in attendance as well as a special meet and greet of select players. Broadway show tickets and authentic NFL footballs (signed by Boomer Esiason) will be raffled throughout the day.
If you’re interested in attending the event, tickets start at $100. Please visit The Actors Fund’s website for more information, including who to contact in order to reserve your spot at the game.
Yesterday (June 16th), Aaron Tveit attended the opening night for Much Ado About Nothing, this year’s selection for the annual Shakespeare in the Park. As part of the summer tradition offered by The Public Theater – now in it’s 52nd year – Much Ado will entertain at the Delacorte Theater in New York’s Central Park.
If you happen to be in the City between June 18th-July 6th, be sure to stop by and support some local theater: it’s free! (Fun fact: Aaron’s former “Graceland” co-star Pedro Pascal [also recently seen in HBO's hit series, "Game Of Thrones"] is currently starring in the play.) For more information, check out their official site.
With the “Graceland” premiere last night and season two now underway, many interviews have emerged in support of the show. Aaron Tveit recently hit up a few places – including “The TODAY Show” – in order to talk about the USA Network series and his character, Mike Warren.
Instead of making numerous posts on ATN for each, individual interview, I’ve decided instead to collect them in a master press post. Below the cut, you’ll be able to find him chatting to Bloomberg, NBC New York, Sports Illustrated, and perhaps others as they become available.
Fans have asked (and asked and asked…), and Team Tveit has listened. After a hiatus, Aaron Tveit will once again be accepting fan mail! There is a new address for fans to send all their letters, artwork, and autograph requests, so disregard any and all former addresses used. From now on, only use the following when submitting your mail:
c/o Spanky Taylor
3727 W. Magnolia Blvd #300
Burbank, CA 91505
Be sure to include a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope)!
Keep in mind that all mail submissions are completely out of my hand, so please don’t contact me asking if/when you will hear back. It may take months to receive a response, particularly autographs; after all, Aaron is a very busy man these days. That said, do feel confident that the mail will reach him.
Also, quick request: please be responsible. Don’t divulge private information, and stay away from gifts like food (especially perishable food). Other than that, start penning your letters now and have fun!
Just in time to help kick off summer, “Graceland” is back for a second season — starting tonight! What kind of high stakes will audiences see their favorites face this time? Check out a trailer above, highlighting some of the discrepancies when Mike Warren (played by Aaron Tveit) joins the Graceland house again after a stint in DC. As promised by Aaron, Daniel Sunjata, and even creator Jeff Eastin, the upcoming season will be even darker than the first. Don’t forget: season two starts tonight at 10/9c on USA Network.
Additionally, Just Jared recently interviewed Aaron about what to expect in season two. He talked about Mike and Paige’s (romantic and professional) relationship, the blurred morality lines both Mike and Briggs face, and whether or not that incriminating recording from season one will come into play again. Check out an excerpt of the interview below, then head to the source for more:
JustJared.com: We know that Mike is in D.C. at the start of the episode. What else can you say about where it picks up?
Aaron Tveit: We pick up in an interesting place. As you saw at the end of [season one], Mike goes back to D.C. and I think it’s a couple months later. and Mike’s been working in this job, and he’s back on the track that I think he thought he wanted to be on — this fast track to upper management. I think he’s starting to deal with hitting some bumps in the road and seeing that D.C. is more of a bureaucratic place than necessarily one where he can go out and get his hands dirty and make things happen. So I think he’s more frustrated by that.
Briggs and Paige sen Briggs' undercover after Mike, who they believe has pushed boundaries too far. Unfortunately, a dirty cop's commitment to corruption causes the operation to go awry.
"Graceland" | MIKE WARREN Currently airing on USA Network.
