Cheyenne Jackson Moves In On Don Draper’s Turf With Carnegie Hall Gig

We’ve seen Cheyenne Jackson in person and, let us tell you, the man knows how to fill out a suit. It’s not an exaggeration to say we’d pay to hear him read from the telephone book—if anyone had a telephone book anymore.

Fortunately, your options are somewhat better on November 18, when Jackson performs with The New York Pops under Musical Director Steven Reineke at Carnegie Hall.

Though Cheyenne has become something of a household name with appearances on Glee and 30 Rock, the out entertainer will be channeling a different hit show—Mad Men—when he performs “Luck Be A Lady,” “Feeling Good” and other songs from the swinging ’60s with the legendary orchestra.

“I absolutely love working with Cheyenne,” says Reineke of the All Shook Up and Xanadu star. “This is going to be a really hip, swingin’ concert with some of our favorite tunes from the 50s and 60s —and even some contemporary tunes that are a throwback to that time. Like all of our concerts, I like to throw in a few surprises.”

Come to think about it, why don’t they put Jackson in Mad Men? He could be Don Draper’s insanely hot gay brother-in-law or something.
Get a taste of “Cheyenne Jackson’s Cocktail Hour: Music of the Mad Men Era,” courtesy of Playbill.com, in the clip below.

      When he was in “All Shook Up” he had a moment in a song when he made his pecs bounce under his shirt… and it was the damndest think I ever saw. Wow! He has the best voice – he can sing that song “A Long Time Comin'” better than anyone else ever has, and it’s a tough fuckin’ song to sing.

      Cheyenne, is one of only a few talented Gay role models we have in this country. He’s smart, charming, super talented and an activist for many gay and lesbian charities. Every success that he’s had was earned the old fashion way through hard work and paying his dues. We need to support and demand real talent in all media entertaiment. Cheyenne looking forward to seeing your show at Carnegie Hall on Friday.
