Tony Award-winner and Emmy– and two-time Grammy-nominated actress and singer Kelli O’Hara will play two concerts at London’s Cadogan Hall.
Kelli could most recently be seen gracing the stage as Anna Leonowens in Bartlett Sher’s critically acclaimed revival of classic musical, ‘The King as I’. The actress won the 2015 Tony Award for ‘Best Leading Actress in a Musical’ for the role, which she reprised in what was her West End debut at the London Palladium, where she was hailed by The Times as “Broadway musical’s undisputed queen” who added, “Kelli O’Hara does not just play Anna, she owns the part”.
Kelli’s Broadway credits include: ‘The Bridges of Madison County’ (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, OCC nominations), ‘Nice Work If You Can Get It’ (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, OCC nominations), ‘South Pacific’ (Tony, Drama Desk, OCC nominations), ‘The Pajama Game’ (Tony, Drama Desk, OCC nominations), ‘The Light in the Piazza’ (Tony & Drama Desk nominations), ‘Sweet Smell of Success’, ‘Follies’, ‘Dracula’, and ‘Jekyll & Hyde’.
Her regional/Off-Broadway credits include ‘Far From Heaven’ (Playwrights Horizons and WTF), ‘King Lear’ (Public Theatre), ‘Bells Are Ringing’ (City Center Encores), ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ (Reprise), and ‘My Life With Albertine’ (Playwright’s Horizons).
In 2018, Kelli received a Webby nomination for her role in the hit web-series thriller ‘The Accidental Wolf’, and appears in the second season of Netflix’s series ‘13 Reasons Why’. Other film and television credits include: ‘All The Bright Places’, ‘Sex & The City 2’, Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Key to Reserva’, Showtime’s ‘Masters of Sex’, CBS All Access’ ‘The Good Fight’, ‘Blue Bloods’, ‘Alexander Hamilton’, ‘N3mbers’, and the animated series ‘Car Talk’.
In 2015, Kelli made her Metropolitan Opera debut in Lehár’s T’he Merry Widow’. She returned to the opera this past spring as Despina in Mozart’s ‘Così fan tutte’. Her concerts have gained international acclaim, spanning from New York’s Carnegie Hall all the way to Tokyo. She is a frequent performer on PBS’s live telecasts and the Kennedy Center Honours. Along with two Grammy Award nominations, her solo albums, ‘Always‘ and ‘Wonder in the World‘ are available on Ghostlight Records.
Kelli will star in the upcoming Broadway revival of ‘Kiss Me Kate’ in Spring 2019.
Produced by Club 11 London and Take Two Theatricals, Kelli’s debut London solo concerts will be performed at Cadogan Hall on 10th November 2019, with a show at 2:30pm, and one at 6:30pm.
