After taking some time off to heal from a skiing injury earlier this year, one of Broadway's biggest voices, Lea Salonga, is ready to kick-off the North American leg of her Lea Salonga: The Human Heart Tour on Friday, April 5 in Costa Mesa, CA at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
To date, the tour has sold-out 15 of the 26 North American stops.
Most recently, Salonga wrapped her role as Erzulie, the goddess of love, in the Broadway revival of Once On This Island', which won the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical and garnered a 2019 Grammy Nomination for Best Musical Theater Album. Following the show's widely successful run, she then traveled to Los Angeles for a brief three-night engagement as Grace Farrell in 'Annie', alongside an all-star cast at the famed concert venue, The Hollywood Bowl. Now, Salonga is thrilled to be back touring and meeting her incredible fans.
"I've really been looking forward to performing in all of these beautiful venues - including our opening night in the gorgeous Segerstrom concert hall," says Salonga. "I'm excited, nervous and cannot wait!"
Lea Salonga is best known for her TonyAward winning role in 'Miss Saigon'. In addition to the Tony, she has won the Olivier, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World Awards, in the field of musical theatre. She was also the first Asian to play Eponine in the musical 'Les Misérables' on Broadway and returned to the show as Fantine in the 2006 revival.
Many fans of all ages recognize Lea as the singing voice of Princess Jasmine from 'Aladdin' and Fa Mulan for 'Mulan' and 'Mulan II'. For her portrayal of the beloved princesses, the Walt Disney Company bestowed her with the honor of “Disney Legend” in August of 2011.
