Darius De Haas


July 9-10
Cabaret at the Columbia Club

One of the pleasures of a lifetime of theater-going is seeing a relatively unknown performer, being wowed, making a mental
note of his or her name, then seeing how the talent evolves.

I was first knocked out by Darius de Haas when he played dual roles in the Paper Mill Playhouse production of Stephen Schwartz’s
“Children of Eden.” While I expected a long list of theater credits to follow, de Haas instead turned his career
primarily to concert stages and cabarets, with a specialty in the jazz music of Billy Strayhorn. When he comes to Indy this
weekend, De Haas will spend one set returning to his Broadway roots (his credits include “Rent” and “Carousel”)
and another focusing on the music of Stevie Wonder. Details here.
