BROADWAY @ Le Petit and Mark Cortale proudly present TONY Award Winner JOANNA GLEASON for 1 show only with WELL-STRUNG, The Singing String Quartet. Featuring Jeff Klitz at the piano.
Joanna's fantasy and real lives intersect underscored by tunes ranging from Billy Joel to Dave Frishberg to Johnny Mathis, with maybe even a little walk through the woods. Revered by Broadway audiences for her unforgettable (& award-winning) portrayal of The Baker's Wife in the original company of Into the Woods, New York has also embraced Joanna in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Nick and Nora and Sons of The Prophet among others, racking up all of the major theatre awards along the way. This is to say nothing of her film and TV work, which includes Boogie Nights, Crimes & Misdemeanors, The Wedding Planner, the upcoming Last Vegas and a whole host of other projects. It's the cabaret event of the fall as this eloquent, witty and thoroughly delightful star makes her New Orleans debut.
WELL-STRUNG returns since after their exciting debut last fall at House of Blues for Halloween New Orleans. In the midst of their first international concert tour, Well-Strung, The Singing String Quartet, made their NBC Today Show debut on "Today with Kathie Lee & Hoda" this past March. They have been referred to as "absolutely amazing" by BBC Radio host Jo Good during their recent London debut, and as "the hottest thing with a bow since Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games" by the New York Daily News. Their brand new show currently on tour is entitle POPssical is written and performed by Well-Strung and directed by Donna Drake and features the music of Beethoven, Ravel, Madonna, U2 and Miley Cyrus.
