After a sold-out engagement last April, Lea Salonga returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with a show The New York Times called “one of the year’s most satisfying cabaret shows” and Theatermania touted as “unmissable”! Salonga smartly weaves together a set list of her favorite standards, go-to pop tunes, and Broadway ballads. This trio of piano, guitar, and voice ensures an intimate experience with a true Broadway icon. Salonga joins us for a record-breaking run of 15 performances this spring!
Salonga is a Tony, Olivier, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award winner for originating the role of Kim in Miss Saigon. She has also starred on Broadway in Allegiance, Les Miserables and Flower Drum Song. She has voiced two singing princesses in Disney animated films (Jasmine in Aladdin and Mulan in Mulan), appeared in both the 10th and 25th Anniversary concerts of Les Miserables, and toured the globe as a concert artist and released numerous solo recordings.
Her program consisted mostly of an astutely chosen mixture of standards and contemporary songs, in which she abstained from wailing pyrotechnics to dig deeply into the lyrics and give one of the year’s most satisfying cabaret shows.
