Mark Cassius made his Broadway debut in the revival of Shenandoah in 1989. He was an original cast member in the world premiere of Ragtime (1996) in Toronto. Ragtime took him to Broadway for a second time in 1998, and then again in the revival of Jesus Christ Superstar in 2012. That production came out of his second season at The Stratford Festival of Canada in 2011 after appearing in 2007 as Mr. Magix in My One and Only. Mark was a cast member of many of Canada’s mega-musicals in the 1990s, such as CATS, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (with Donny Osmond), Miss Saigon, and Showboat.

I have friends and family who would like to watch the series. Can I share the concerts with them?
Yes, these concerts are free to the public. However, they are only available to viewers in Canada and the United States because the series is supported by the Music Performance Trust Fund, which only permits viewers in these two countries.
What is the Music Performance Trust Fund?
Established in 1948, the Music Performance Trust Fund (MPTF) is a non-profit independent public service organization whose mission includes contributing to the public knowledge and appreciation of music, as well as making music a part of every child's life experience. Headquartered in New York City, MPTF evolved from a landmark collective bargaining agreement between the American Federation of Musicians and the major recording companies of the day. Today the MPTF is a vital organization that brings music to the public and supplements the income of musicians, all at no cost to those receiving this precious gift of music.
