Five-time Tony Award nominee Kelli O'Hara will perform a one-night-only benefit concert, An Enchanted Evening With Kelli O'Hara, on the Main Stage at Williamstown Theatre Festival on Monday, August 11.
The recent star of Broadway's The Bridges of Madison County, which mounted its pre-Broadway tryout at Williamstown Theatre Festival in summer 2013, will be joined by a number of surprise guest performers who will sing a broad range of classic and contemporary musical theater tunes. The concert will trace O'Hara's Broadway career, with numbers from her Tony-nominated roles in The Light in the Piazza, The Pajama Game, South Pacific, and The Bridges of Madison County. The bill will also include songs from her past Williamstown performance in Far From Heaven and her upcoming Broadway turn in The King and I, which will begin performances at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater on March 12 in advance of an April 16 opening.
Tony-nominated star of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder Bryce Pinkham will host a one-night-only benefit concert on Monday, July 28, at Joe's Pub. Proceeds will benefit Zara Aina, an organization cofounded by Pinkham and Lucas Rooney that delivers school supplies to villages in Madagascar for children to produce original works of theater. The concert, titled Broadway Sings Its Heart Out, will feature performances by Broadway stars including Adriane Lenox (After Midnight), Laura Osnes (Wicked), Jacob Ming-Trent (Hands on a Hardbody), as well as Kate Schutt, Griffin Matthews and Matt Gould (Witness Uganda), and Pinkham's A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder costars Lisa O'Hare and Lauren Worsham.
