About Andy Mientus
Following a sold-out performance at New York’s Feinstein’s/54 Below, Broadway and television star Andy Mientus ("Les Miserables," "Spring Awakening," TV’s "Smash" and "The Flash") brings Joni Mitchell’s iconic 1970 album, "Ladies of the Canyon," to life on-stage.
At 26 years old, Joni Mitchell wrote and recorded songs, drew album art, and hand wrote lyrics for the release of her third studio album, "Ladies of the Canyon." Joined by music director Benjamin Rauhala, Mientus will cover the album in full, stripping beloved songs such as “Big Yellow Taxi,” “Woodstock,” and “The Circle Game” down to find the hymns inside these unquiet triumphs.
Andy recently made his London theatrical debut in the new musical The View Upstairs at Soho Theatre. Andy made his television debut as composer ‘Kyle Bishop’ on the NBC musical drama “Smash” and plays the recurring role of ‘Hartley Rathaway’ (aka ‘The Pied Piper’) on the hit CW series “The Flash.” On Broadway, Andy starred as ‘Marius’ in the revival of "Les Misérables," and as ‘Hanschen’ in Deaf West Theater’s revival of "Spring Awakening," which he also co-conceived with director Michael Arden.
As a writer, Andy made his debut with the book and lyrics to "Burn All Night" at American Repertory Theater (ART), and with the young adult fiction series “The Backstagers” from Amulet/Abrams, available online and in bookstores nationwide. He can also be heard on “The Jonathan Larson Project” (Ghostlight Records).
