Bay Area Cabaret presents Broadway and rising pop star Morgan James, live in the Venetian Room at the Fairmont San Francisco. Hailing from Modesto, the Juilliard-trained opera singer turned jazz-pop vocalist and Broadway actress has wowed audiences with her powerful vocals and versatility as a performer. After graduating from Juilliard, Ms. James quickly developed a reputation as one of the most talented young performers on Broadway - being cast in Broadway productions of The Addams Family (with Nathan Lane), Wonderland (with Bay Area Cabaret's Karen Mason), the 2011 revival of Godspell, and Motown: The Musical. In December 2012, she further expanded her vocal portfolio, signing with Epic Records and releasing her first solo album Morgan James Live, a live tribute to Nina Simone which JazzTimes magazine declared “big-voiced and remarkably soulful.” Attracting attention from music-industry legends like Clive Davis and Sony’s Doug Morris, Morgan James is currently working on her first studio album. Her on-stage performances have left critics in awe, with The Wall Street Journal describing her as “the most promising young vocalist to come along so far for this century” and The New York Times’ Stephen Holden declaring Ms. James “a phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep...This woman is on fire.”
