Tony winner Kelli O'Hara, who will co-star with Will Chase in the Roundabout Theatre Company's December 12 benefit concert reading of the classic musical comedy Kiss Me, Kate, makes her solo Carnegie Hall debut October 29 at 8 PM in the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage.
O'Hara told Playbill.com, “My show is called Never Go Solo because I never have and I never will, and I'm here because of that. Every song will be a dedication to a special someone or a group of special someones who have helped me get to this stage.” Attendees can expect “a lot of surprises… and great guests.”
O'Hara will interpret such tunes as “I Have Dreamed” and “To Build Myself a Home,” among many others.
The Tony-winning actor is joined by conductor-musical director Dan Lipton on piano with Peter Donovan on bass, Justin Goldner on guitars, Gene Lewin on drums and percussion, concertmaster Antoine Silverman on violin, Erin Benim on violin, Robin Zeh on violin, Lisa Matricardi on violin and viola, Mairi Dorman-Phaneuf on cello, Peter Sachon on cello, Audrey Flores on horn, and Steve Kenyon on woodwinds.
O'Hara won her Tony Award for her performance in the recent revival of The King and I. She was also Tony-nominated for her work in The Light in the Piazza, The Pajama Game, South Pacific, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and The Bridges of Madison County.
