Regina Spektor is the latest artist to join the In Residence On Broadway program, making her Broadway debut with a series of shows at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Her performances are scheduled for June 20, 21, 22, 25 and 26. In Residence On Broadway is produced by Live Nation, The Araca Group, and EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group).

"I am so inspired as I plan these five nights on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne, a beautiful old theater with a rich history," said Spektor in a statement. "One of the things I'm most excited about is the chance to explore theatrical elements within my concert show. This isn't a 'Broadway Show,' and yet it's not a tour concert, either. I'm revisiting all the songs I've ever written, to see how some of them might group together and connect into a show. I am thinking up some fun ways to incorporate special guests as well. I'll be rotating the solo songs quite a bit between the dates, and I'm finding ways to reimagine many of them. Some haven't been played since my days of playing bars, cafes and open mics. So far the plan is to set up at the Lunt-Fontanne, and in my own small way, pay homage to Broadway!"

Born in the Soviet Union, Spektor first saw commercial success with her fourth album, Begin to Hope, which includes singles "On the Radio," "Better," and "Fidelity." Her fifth album, Far (2009), and sixth album, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats (2012), both debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Spektor can also be heard singing "Dear Theodosia" on The Hamilton Mixtape.
