Tony- and Grammy-nominated singer and actor Jeremy Jordan (Newsies, Smash) has joined the lineup of performers for Elsie Fest 2017. He joins the previously announced headliners Darren Criss, who co-founded the outdoor music festival, Lea Michele (Spring Awakening), Alan Cumming (Cabaret), Ingrid Michaelson (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), and Norm Lewis (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street).
The festival, which returns for a third year with an all-new roster of Broadway stars and showtunes, will take place October 8 at Central Park SummerStage. Additional performers and guests will be announced at a later date.
Tickets are now on sale at ElsieFest.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS.
Elsie Fest is executive-produced by Criss, Ricky Rollins, Jordan Roth, and Dr. Sidney J. Stern.
