THE SCREENING ROOM: Happy Birthday, Lea Salonga (Video)
22 Feb 2013
Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, most recently seen in the star-studded New York concert of Ragtime, celebrates her birthday Feb. 22. In celebration of the award-winning performer, Playbill.com looks back at her career.
Salonga, who took home the Tony Award in 1991 for her performance in Miss Saigon, has also been seen on Broadway in Les Misérables and Flower Drum Song. She is also known for her portrayal of Princess Jasmine in the Disney movie musical "Aladdin."
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
