Sam Gravitte Returns to Birdland with Broadway Standards and More

Once again Sam Gravitte, most recently seen as Fiyero in Wicked on Broadway, teamed up with a quartet of some of New York’s most dynamic young musicians at Birdland on Monday night. Led by pianist/composer Jake Landau, with guitarist Ravi Campbell, bassist Kanoa Mendenhall and drummer Zach Mullings, Sam performed standards like Sondheim’s “Why Try to Change Me Now”, “Finishing the Hat”, and duet with Solea Pfeiffer (Evita, West Side Story). The packed house included Academy Award-winning Ariana DeBose, Tony-nominated actor Stephen Bogardus, Tony-winning set designer Scott Pask, Broadway producer Tony Marion, Sam’s mother Debbie Gravitte, and twin sister/ filmmaker Ellie Gravitte.
