From instant cult classics to Hollywood blockbusters, the incredibly versatile Oscar Isaac has shown his range on screen through starring roles in 2018’s Operation Finale; the Star Wars series’ The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi; the indie sci-fi thriller Ex Machina; and, in 2013, the lead in Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coen Brothers’ homage to the 1960s Greenwich Village folk music scene, for which he performed his character’s compositions live. Meanwhile, his performance in the HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero earned him a Golden Globe, and on stage, he received rave reviews as the “majestically impudent” title character (New York Times) in the Public Theater’s 2017 production of Hamlet. But leading man stardom is just the beginning of Isaac’s multifaceted artistry. Before becoming a household name, the Juilliard grad played lead guitar and sang in his own band, the Blinking Underdogs. Join Isaac on a personal musical journey that places all of his virtuosity centerstage, in a glamorous setting worthy of this Tinseltown talent.
“He’s a classically trained actor of true range, one who can sing and dance, do comedy, action, and drama with equal ease and authority. He’s thrilling to watch, a prodigious mind sparking a nimble (and, yes, handsome) form into action.”– Vanity Fair
“From the opening close-up of him singing with heartbreaking soulfulness to his slapstick spiraling through a week of misfortune and bad decisions, Isaac is utterly captivating in every frame.”– Telegraph (U.K.) on Inside Llewyn Davis
