The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture continues its concert-interview series, Broadway Bares Soul: An Intimate Evening of Song & Spirit, with a 7:30 PM October 3 appearance by Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara

The event is hosted by CNN Faith & Religion commentator, Fr. Edward Beck, C.P., who discusses the stars’ “formative influences, their life trajectories, and how their careers have been shaped by their spiritual and social/political worldview.”

The series began in September with Vanessa Williams (Into the Woods), and is scheduled to conclude with an appearance by Raúl Esparza (Company) on December 14.

O’Hara was nominated for the Tony Award six times between 2005 and 2015 before winning for her performance as Anna Leonowens in the Lincoln Center revival of The King and I. Her Broadway résumé also includes South Pacific, The Light in the Piazza, The Bridges of Madison County, The Pajama Game, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and Dracula: The Musical. She is scheduled to co-star in a concert staging of the musical Brigadoon November 15–19 at City Center.
