Darius de Haas bridges the gap between music and theatre in his live cabaret shows. With a resume that reads like a multifaceted road map of the performing arts, his experience has made him an incredibly seasoned young singer. A graduate of both the music and theatre programs at Columbia College, Darius de Haas cut his acting teeth at some of the finest Chicago theatres including Northlight and The Goodman. When he won a scholarship to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, Darius de Haas bravely packed his bags and headed East to the big city. Upon graduating he almost immediately landed his first role in a national tour for Once on this Island.
This opportunity gave birth to an entire career’s worth of regional and national tours for shows including Jesus Christ Superstar Gospel, Best of Both Worlds, Ain’t Misbehavin, The Bacchae, Children of Eden, Only Heaven and many more. When he made his triumphant return to New York, he landed his big Broadway debut in Kiss of the Spider Woman. From there he was a featured actor in various Broadway productions including the Lincoln Center revival of Carousel, Rent and Marie Christine.
He even toured internationally in the world premiere of I Was Looking at the Ceiling and then I Saw the Sky directed by Peter Sellers. However, the biggest feather in this talent machine’s hat is his Obie award for his work in the title role of the Off Broadway hit Running Man. In addition to his work on stage, Darius has made many film and television appearances. In fact his voice can be heard on the film soundtracks of Anastasia, Marting and Orloff and the Academy Award winning film Chicago.
