The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra presents A Broadway Evening with Heather Headley, Saturday, October 5th at 7:30 p.m. in the Robinson Center. The ASO is proud to collaborate with Headley and her special guest, NBC’s The Voice finalist, Chris Mann. Headley and Mann will be joined on stage by the Parkview High School Lab Singers and Madrigals in Little Rock for one night only.
From her role as Broadway’s original Nala in The Lion King and her Tony Award-winning role as Aida in Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida to her recurring role as Gwen Garrett on NBC’s Chicago Med, Headley is one of the most talented artists of this generation. In 2016 she returned to the Broadway stage as Shug Avery in the Tony Award-winning revival of The Color Purple.
Headley will perform selections from The Lion King and Aida as well as selections from Broadway favorites like “For Good” from the award-winning musical, Wicked and “My House” from Matilda. Headley will also perform selections from classic hits like “Amazing Grace” and Elton John’s “Your Song” for a well-rounded musical evening.
Tickets are $19, $39, $59, and $79 and can be purchased online at www.ArkansasSymphony.org; at the Robinson Center street-level box office beginning 90 minutes prior to the concert; or by phone at 501-666-1761, ext. 1.
