BYRON ST. CYR
Being a child of New Orleans, music has always been a part of Byron’s everyday life. After years of playing jazz saxophone he made the leap into musical theatre and discovered another side of his voice while studying at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. During that time he began digging into classical voice, reveling in the worlds of Verdi and Puccini. Soon after graduating he began his theatrical career touring the country in Miss Saigon and My Fair Lady and in regional productions including Beauty and the Beast and Ragtime among others. He’s been lucky to share the stage with legends such as Melba Moore, Stephanie Mills and Chita Rivera. After taking a break from the stage, his immense love for music brought him to the cabaret stage where he created and performed in Byron St. Cyr: Old French Whore. He followed that first venture with 4600 Mithra: My New Orleans which earned him a 2018 MAC Nomination. That was followed by the collaborative shows, SATC: Sondheim and the City with Steven Ferezy, and Just Like Me: Queer Voices in Music(al Theatre). In October 2018 he debut a brand new solo show, Byron St. Cyr Swings Down Broadway, and he returns to the stage this winter in Elf: The Musical at Syracuse Stage.
