Olivier Award winner & Tony Award nominee Jenna Russell (Sunday In The Park With George, Merrily We Roll Along and Fun Home at the Young Vic) and four-time Tony nominee Judy Kuhn (star of Trevor Nunn’s new Fiddler On The Roof at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Broadway’s Fun Home, Chess and Les Misérables) will join Seth Rudetsky as music director/host for two intimate concerts on Sunday, February 3 as part of the long-running Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre series.
Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre began in 2013 with Patti LuPone and returned with Audra McDonald in 2016 and John Barrowman and Ramin Karimlooo earlier this year. What differentiates this concert series is the seamless mix of intimate behind-the-scenes stories from Broadway’s biggest stars – prompted by Rudetsky’s probing, funny, revealing questions – and their stellar singing of the musical theatre repertoire.
Jenna Russell is an award winning actress whose accolades include 2007 Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance as Dot/Marie in Sunday In The Park With George at Wyndhams Theatre. She reprised her role on Broadway at Studio 54 where she won 2008 Theatre World Award for Broadway Debut Performance. She also received a 2008 Tony Award nomination and 2008 Drama Desk nomination for the same role.
