Now based in NYC, Joe is from Syracuse, NY. This “Boy from Syracuse” has been playing the piano since he was 5 and singing since he could make a sound. He received his BA in Music from Colgate University and his MA in in Musical Theatre Performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Over the past few years, he has been performing in the New York area and abroad. Some notable roles include Tobias Ragg in Sweeney Todd and Fyedka in Fiddler on the Roof. He also has had the privilege to perform at both Lincoln Center and Radio City Music Hall with The Dessoff Choir.
The highlight of Joe’s time in the UK was a month-long run of two shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, during which he played Paul in Stephen Sondheim’s Company.
Joe recently played the role of the Purser in Anything Goes at the Riverside Theatre in NYC. He was mentioned in a review in NY Cabaret Today here: “Joe Bliss as Purser provided the baby doll eye-candy for the number and “charmed” as easily as a Blow Pop.”
