Although the world was shocked when he was eliminated from American Idol Maroulis would ultimately remain one of the most popular and beloved finalists of all time. Soon after that season ended, Maroulis embarked on the traditional sold out summer arena tour for American Idol finalists. This, on the heels of the multi-platinum selling American Idol Season 4 CD where Constantine contributed his moody rendering of “My Funny Valentine.” Eventually Maroulis was able to find time to record his own very first solo album simply titled Constantine. A fantastic band of veteran musicians was assembled in order to complete this album, a diverse collection of brand new moody pop tunes that even features some songs penned by Maroulis himself. The critically acclaimed album fared well, debuting high on the Billboard charts and was supported by a series of club tours of the United States.
Constantine Maroulis continues to do his thing as a highly sought- after workaholic durable entertainer who consistently delivers. This year has already proven to be another busy year for the charismatic Constantine Maroulis, including a highly touted guest appearance on television’s Law & Order: SVU as well as reinventing the lead role in Joe DiPietro (Memphis) penned cult musical The Toxic Avenger, this for a special limited pre-Broadway engagement at Houston’s famed theater The Alley. Speaking of reinvention, Maroulis worked diligently with famed Manhattan producers the Neiderlander Organization to create a re-imagined version of Frank Wildhorn’s epic musical Jekyll & Hyde. Constantine will co-star with the talented Deborah Cox and embark on a massive 25-week tour before arriving on Broadway in 2013.
