Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, who will appear in the Avery Fisher Hall concert production of Ragtime, will offer solo concerts Feb. 22-23 and Feb. 26 in Hawaii.
Following her performance as Mother in the Feb. 18 Ragtime concert, Salonga will perform Feb. 22 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center at 7:30 PM, Feb. 23 at the Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall at 8 PM and Feb. 26 at the KCC Performing Arts Center at 7 PM.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
