Norbert's Bio

NORBERT LEO BUTZ (Emcee) a native of St. Louis, Norbert is stupidly happy to be a part of this wonderful show. He comes to Cabaret from the Broadway company of Rent, where he's been playing Roger Davis for the past year, and as a swing in Rent he played more roles than he can rememeber. Norbert moved to New York 2 1/2 years ago with Sydney, his loving and courageous wife from Montgomery, AL, where he earned an MFA and spent 2 years in the company of the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Favorite roles there include the title role in Lizard (also at the Olympic Arts Festival in Atlanta), Dauphin in St. Joan, Joe in Balm in Gilead, and the title role in The Flying Doctor. He appeared in the John Welles' pilot film, "The Adversaries" and the soon to be released indie film "Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God". He recently recorded two songs for the soundtrack fo the indie film "Looking for an Echo". A guitarist and songwriter as well, he is currently working on a demo of new songs. He would like to thank Mom and Dad, Rob and Cynthia, Sam Mendes and Alan Cumming for inspiration and the great awful jokes. For my beautiful daughter, Clara Virginia."
