Steven M. Goldsmith is originally from Miami, FL where he was born and raised. He discovered his love of performing in elementary and middle school where he took choir and theater classes. It wasn't until he saw the national tour of “Les Miserables” on an 8th grade field trip that he realized this is what he wanted to do with the rest of his life.
In high school, Steven continued taking theater classes. In his freshman year, his drama teacher saw much promise and encouraged him to partake in the Florida Thespian competitions; he spent the remainder of his time in high school dabbling in all categories of the competitions (singing, directing, scenes, monologues and plays). He also began studying vocal technique as preparation for getting into college.
Realizing that to compete at the professional level he needed more training, Steven went on to earn a B.F.A. from the University of Miami’s theatre conservatory program, graduating Cum Laude. As his craft grew stronger, he eventually developed into a high tenor. He used this skill in MainStage productions at school as well as in summer stock theaters. Directly after graduation, Steven performed on a cruise ship sailing around the Mediterranean and moved to NYC soon after.
Steven’s career has ranged from theatrical performances in NYC, regional theaters, national and international tours to TV and Film. He’s worked with Liza Minnelli, Jon Secada, Richard Maltby Jr, & Des McAnuff just to name a few. He’s performed on the Primetime Emmy Awards, promotional t.v. spots, concerts, TV shows and national campaign commercials. One of his favorite credits was originating the role of Joe Pesci in the San Francisco & Chicago companies of Jersey Boys where he also understudied his dream role, Frankie Valli (the latter of which he performed over 50 times). He later went on to perform the same duties in the Toronto company of Jersey Boys.
More recently, Steven performed at regional theaters around the country in shows such as Smokey Joe's Cafe, The Drowsy Chaperone, Thoroughly Modern Millie and Mary Poppins. This past year, Steven played Rusty in the regional premiere of Starlight Express where he garnered rave reviews (growing up as a speed skater, he was finally able to put that skill to use in the theater). He is constantly working on and improving his craft as he looks forward to his next endeavor...
