Best known for his role as Thor on Nurse Jackie, SAG Award nominated actor Stephen Wallem is our version of a triple threat: Actor, Singer, and Funny Guy!

“A Burly Night Music” is a musical and anecdotal retrospective of a very high voice trapped in a very large body.

Featuring songs from Stephen’s big and/or “simple” guy roles including Shrek in Shrek the Musical, Hazel in Pipe Dream, and Horton the Elephant in Seussical, as well as songs from Hairspray, Elf, Anna Nicole the Opera, The Addams Family and original music celebrating the big-boned beauty of Broadway and Hollywood.

Stephen has too many stage credits to list here but there’s always room for awards and super honour-y stuff so…

His performance in Bedroom Secrets earned him the 2014 Fringe NYC Overall Excellence in Acting Award. He also teamed with Edie Falco for a sold-out run of the original cabaret The Other Steve and Edie at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. Chicago Cabaret Professionals named Stephen their National Honoree for 2014.

Stephen served as host of the Marriage Equality USA National Gala in 2013 and the Empire State Pride Agenda Gala in 2014. He was also a keynote speaker at the Human Rights Campaign gala in Philadelphia.

This is Stephen’s Toronto solo show debut so get your tix early as the space is small and the talent is huuuuuge!

Here’s a bit from a show he did with Edie Falco where he’s defying – well you’ll see
