Nathan Gunn and Timothy McDevitt in PBS "Carousel" telecast

The PBS show "Live from Lincoln Center" will broadcast the New York Philharmonic's performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel on April 26th. The performance features barihunk Nathan Gunn as the carnival barker Billy Bigelow and Kelli O'Hara as Julie Jordan. But keep your eyes peeled for Timothy McDevitt in the ensemble. He's clearly the next generation of barihunkitude and may well be a Billy Bigelow in a future broadcast.

McDevitt will be singing Le Mari in Poulenc's Les Mamelles de Tiresias at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence on June 14th and 15th. Nathan Gunn can currently be seen in Dominick Argento's The Aspern Papers at the Dallas Opera. There is one performance remaining on April 28th and tickets are available online.

Tony Award winner John Rando, who is best known for Urinetown and A Christmas Story, directed the performance. Check your local listings for broadcast times and stations in your area.

  1. Just watched Carousel on Pbs Orlando and it was awesome. Both guys were vocally unbelievable and I could watch it over and over, on TV, live, any where, any time. Nathan's performance was awesome and incredible (I could watch and listen to you continuously). Can't wait to watch you in future projects on TV. Good luck and God bless!
