Bay Area Cabaret kicks off its season with the highly anticipated West Coast concert debut of one of Broadway’s brightest stars, Kelli O’Hara. Last year, Ms. O’Hara won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, for her performance as Anna Leonowens in the Lincoln Center revival of The King and I, having been nominated for five additional Tony awards for her work in South Pacific, The Light in the Piazza, The Pajama Game (opposite Harry Connick, Jr.), The Bridges of Madison County and Nice Work if You Can Get It (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle nominations, and Fred Astaire Nomination for dance). Ben Brantley of the New York Times called her “one of our greatest reinterpreters of musical standards."Television audiences know Ms. O’Hara for her performance as Mrs. Darling in NBC’s live telecast of Peter Pan, as a frequent guest artist on the PBS Memorial Day and July 4th telecasts and her performances as part of the Kennedy Honors tributes for Barbara Cook, Jerry Herman and Barbra Streisand. Capable of handling the most challenging musical theatre roles, Ms. O’Hara’s rare vocal talent enables her to “cross over” to operatic roles. Winner of the State Metropolitan Opera Competition in her native Oklahoma, she made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 2014 in The Merry Widow with Renee Fleming. This year, just ten days after her final performance in The King and I, she sang the title role of Dido in Dido and Aeneus at City Center. In October, one month after her Bay Area Cabaret concert, Ms. O’Hara will make her solo Carnegie Hall debut.
