The April 2 concert on the theatre’s mainstage will begin at 7:30 PM.
Olivo's most recent appearance on the New York stage was last June in a five-show run of Jonathan Larson’s tick, tick…BOOM! as part of New York Center’s Encores! Off-Center series.
“I first met Karen when I was Associate Director for the most recent West Side Story revival, directed by my good friend Arthur Laurents,” said artistic director David Saint in a statement. “Her talent, both as an actor and singer, just knocked me out. I am so grateful that she will be making one of her few stage appearances here in New Brunswick for the benefit of George Street Playhouse.”
All seats are $35 and tickets are available through the GSP box office at (732) 246-7717 or gsponline.org. George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue.
