Aerosol scientists suggest that singing is an activity associated with an increased risk of audience exposure to the SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19. In order to minimize that risk, the singers in shows presented at Blue Strawberry starting this August will all perform from as far upstage as possible. Our stage is 10 feet deep, and they will perform at the very back of the stage next to the wall. Supporting musicians will all be masked. We will also pull back our front row of seats 4 feet from the lip of the stage. This will create at least 12 feet of space between the singer and the front row of audience members. We have also reduced our inside capacity from 100 to fewer than half that number.
Blue Strawberry is beyond excited to welcome Broadway's Daniel LeClaire back to St. Louis! Daniel recently played “Elder Smith” in Broadway’s Book of Mormon, “Fender” in Hollywood Bowl’s HAIRSPRAY!, and sang in Betty White’s 90th: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl on NBC.
He is a singer - songwriter also covering some of the greatest popular hits over the decades, with arrangements you've never heard before. After two years at Birdland Jazz Club in New York City, he is now touring the world with residencies in Puerto Vallarta, Las Vegas, and Provincetown.
Daniel also currently stars in the heart-throb Boy Band Project and has shared the stage with Mary Tyler Moore, Nick Jonas, John Stamos, All American Rejects, Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett, Wayne Newton and many more. He has performed at world-renowned venues, such as The Kennedy Center, Fabulous Fox, and Place des Arts, and is really looking forward to bringing his show to back to St. Louis where he lived in 2016!
