The acclaimed singing actress will play the Los Angeles venue at 8:30 PM. Expect songs from Salonga's musical theatre career, her solo recordings and her Disney outings (Salonga sang "Reflection" in Disney's "Mulan" and "A Whole New World" in Disney's "Aladdin"). The concert marks Salonga's final North American 2008 show prior to her upcoming Asian tour of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella.
Lea Salonga catapulted to international stage stardom when she was chosen to star as Kim in the 1989 London world premiere of Boublil and Schonberg's Miss Saigon, produced by Cameron Mackintosh. Only 17 at the time, Philippines native Salonga received critical acclaim and went on to win the Olivier Award as Best Actress in a Musical. In 1991 she reprised her performance on Broadway, again earning rave reviews and winning the Tony Award as Best Actress in a Musical, along with Best Actress honors from the Drama Desk and the Outer Critics' Circle. Salonga returned to Broadway in 2002, starring in the revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Flower Drum Song. She also made her solo debut at Carnegie Hall to a sold-out crowd.
