After losing the lower half of his right leg to bone cancer in 2010, dancer, actor and singer Evan Ruggiero returned to the stage stronger than ever. Now dancing with the aid of a metal post, Ruggiero bills himself as “The One-Legged Song and Dance Man” and has made memorable appearances on American Idol, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Un Nuevo Dia. Joining him for this night of music will be Broadway veteran Jackie Burns (If/Then, Wicked, Hair), Olivia Polci (Foolerie, 54 Below Solo Show), and Kyle Wilder (Black Out with Savion Glover, New Jersey Tap Ensemble, JUBA Masters of Tap and Percussive Dance). For this music- and dance-filled show, Ruggiero will sing his favorite rock and musical theater songs as well as debut some of his own songs from his new original musical, My Champagne Year.” Be sure to catch him during his return engagement to 54 Below after a sold-out show earlier this year.
