Tony winner Lea Salonga, most recently seen as the pie-making Mrs. Lovett in Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd in Manila and Singapore, will launch a North American concert tour in Honolulu, Hawaii, April 3, with additional dates set in New York, California, Ohio, Maryland, and more.
The stage and screen star, a Tony and Olivier winner for her performance as Kim in the original Broadway and London productions of Miss Saigon, will also play several international dates in Dubai, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong.
“I’m thrilled to be back on the road in North America—and all around the world—in 2020,” said Salonga in a statement. “We’ve got a lot of new music, some old favorites, and a few surprises in store. We had so much fun with our incredible sold-out audiences last year. I can’t wait to perform at these gorgeous venues and connect with fans new and old in the months to come.”
