Scott Raneri, a MAC Award and Broadway World Award nominee for “Best Male Debut” for his show The Marvelous Mr. Marzo, makes his post-pandemic cabaret return in his new show, EXTRA! EXTRA!. Through song and story, Scott explores both his professional career and personal life as an “extra”, sharing his life as a third wheel in his friendships, day jobs and personal relationships. And with an exhaustive list of credits on stage and in television, why is he is still awaiting that elusive lead role?
Featuring an eclectic selection of songs ranging from Broadway standards to the folk rock of Janis Ian, EXTRA! EXTRA! takes an honest, funny, and sometimes difficult look at what it takes to keep going when your star refuses to rise, in art and in life.
