Sirius XM host and Playbill correspondent Seth Rudetsky will be joined by four-time Tony Award nominee Judy Kuhn and Olivier Award winner Jenna Russell for two separate London concert appearances on February 3.
Presented as part of the Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre series, Russell will join Rudetsky at 4 PM, with Kuhn set to appear at 8 PM. While they are not announced to appear together, the actors share the distinction of playing the role of Helen Bechdel in the original New York and London productions, respectively, of the Tony-winning musical Fun Home.
Kuhn created the role in the musical’s 2013 Off-Broadway world premiere, later garnering a Tony nomination for her performance in the 2015 Broadway transfer. Russell originated the role in the U.K. premiere of Fun Home at the Young Vic earlier this fall.
Kuhn currently stars in Trevor Nunn’s new revival of Fiddler on the Roof, which opened December 5 at the Menier Chocolate Factory. She is a four-time Tony nominee for her performances in Les Misérables, Chess, She Loves Me, and Fun Home.
Russell won the 2007 Olivier Award for the West End revival of Sunday in the Park With George, and was Tony-nominated for reprising her performance on Broadway. Coincidentally, both actors played leading roles in Les Misérables early in their careers.
