Interview: Robert Cuccioli

Robert Cuccioli made his Broadway debut as Inspector Javert in Les Miserables, and, is best known for his critically acclaimed performance as the duel title roles in the Broadway hit Jekyll & Hyde, for which he received a Tony nomination, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle Award, FANY Award and Chicago’s Joseph Jefferson Award. Off-Broadway credits include Temporary Help, Enter The Guardsman, And The World Goes ‘Round (1991 Outer Critics Circle Award), Gigi, The Rothschilds, Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris and Dietrich & Chevalier. Equally respected for his work in the Classics and Contemporary Plays as well as Musicals, Robert has performed at such notable Regional Theatres as The Guthrie (Antony & Cleopatra), Paper Mill Playhouse (1776, Oklahoma, Lend Me A Tenor, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Sound Of Music), The Shakespeare Theatre of NJ (Amadeus, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Carnival, Othello), The Shakespeare Theatre of DC ( Hamlet, Lorenzzaccio 2006 Helen Hayes Award Nomination), the McCarter Theatre (Fiction, The School for Scandal), George Street Playhouse (The Seafarer, A Moon To Dance By with Jane Alexander) and most recently at the historic Ford’s Theatre in Washington, DC (1776). Television: White Collar, Sliders, Baywatch, The Guiding Light. Film: Woody Allen’s Celebrity, and the independent film The Stranger. Robert is featured on the original cast recordings of Jekyll & Hyde (Atlantic), And The World Goes ‘Round (RCA Victor), Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris (Ghostlight), and The New Picasso (Black Forest Productions). He is also currently working on his debut solo album The Look Of Love which will be released in October 2012.


In celebration of the release of my debut solo album “The Look Of Love”, I will be performing my concert “A Standard Love” on Monday October 8th. With the Barry Levitt Trio.

Cuccioli leads the audience in a touching, warm, uplifting and humorous personal journey through his loves and losses using lyrics from musical standards of the 30’s and 40’s. Included are such classics as: “Ain’t That A Kick In The Head,” “All Of You,” “Love Is Here To Stay,” “A Fine Romance,” “I Wanna Be Around,” “Once Upon A Time,”

 “Witchcraft,” “All I Need Now Is The Girl,” and many more. Of course, Robert will include as an encore, his signature song from Jekyll & Hyde, “This Is The Moment.”
