From Dust to Dreams: Opening Night at The Smith Center For The Performing Arts 2012 - 2013 (TV Show)
Cheyenne Jackson was one of those rare actors who channeled a conflicted childhood into an illustrious career on stage, television and in film. He first gained recognition for his headline-grabbing performances in the Broadway musicals "Thoroughly Modern Millie" (2002), "All Shook Up" (2005), "Xanadu" (2007), and in the revival of "Finian's Rainbow" (2009). After his meteoric rise on Broadway, Jackson delivered a memorable performance in the emotionally charged docu-drama "United 93" (2006), as one of the heroic passengers who foiled a terrorist plot. In 2010, he joined the ensemble cast of the critically acclaimed series "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-2013), his first high-profile role on TV in which he portrayed a Canadian actor hired off the street who has an affair with Tina Fey's character. The high-profile role led to a recurring part on Fox's popular series "Glee" (2009-15), where his character drove most of the season's plot lines, and set the stage for Jackson to be recognized as one of the most versatile and riveting actors across all genres.
