Matt Doyle

Matt Doyle is coming to Orange County directly from Broadway, where he won the 2022 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his performance as Jamie in the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Company. (A performance which also garnered him the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards.)

While still so young, Doyle has been a mainstay on the Great White Way since making his Broadway debut in Spring Awakening in 2007. His other acclaimed performances include the revival of Bye Bye Birdie, the Lincoln Center Theater’s production of War Horse and playing Elder Price in The Book of Mormon. In 2023, he portrayed Frank Sinatra in a new musical about the crooner’s life in Birmingham, England. With his powerhouse voice, laid-back charm and talent for storytelling, Doyle makes his Cabaret Series debut with these concerts. As a singer-songwriter, he performs his own songs live in concert and has released two Eps, namely, Daylight (2011) and Constant (2012). He released his first full-length album, Uncontrolled in 2016.

Internationally acclaimed Tony-, Obie- and Emmy Award-winner Lillias White who most recently starred as Hermes in Hadestown on Broadway, has delighted Segerstrom Center’s Cabaret audiences previously.
