John Manzari - How It Happened; Funny Girl Broadway and More with No Pro Rep

Listen as Broadway star, tap dancer, singer, actor John Manzari shares his journey and insight on the professional performance space, how to navigate it and succeed.

His honest conversation on how he landed at the top of the stage performance industry as a tap dancer, singer and actor without professional representation is refreshing.

A true entertainer and entrepreneur, John is a focused and hardworking artist finding his way to the top. He is a standout in Funny Girl on Broadway and understudies the starring role of Eddie Ryan. A must listen for anyone in the game, struggling or not, who is feeling their career is not moving fast enough.

John Manzari is an Ovation Award and Helen Hayes Award nominated dancer, singer, actor, choreographer, and teacher. Stage credits include the Broadway revival of Funny Girl, Bessie Award winning production Ayodele Casel: Chasing Magic, 42ND Street, Maurice Hines: Tappin’ Thru Life, The Wiz is 40: A Celebration in Dance and Music, and Duke Ellington’s Sophisticated Ladies.

Concerts include NYPopsUp, Spoleto Festival,, Fall for Dance, Fall for Dance North (Canada), Amelia Island Dance Festival, and Gold Coast Dance Festival. John can be seen in the documentary about his mentor Maurice Hines: Bring Them Back, the award winning short film Slip, and Leonard Soloway’s Broadway.

John partners with the Luther S. Allison trio at venues such as Dizzy’s Jazz Club, Birdland Jazz Club, Little Island NYC, and many others.
