As in years past, BroadwayWorld has teamed up with Seth to exclusively bring you the full length episodes right here and we're pleased to bring you Seth's latest candid chat with Broadway favorite Melissa Errico.
After a sold out previous appearance at JOE'S PUB, "Melissa Errico Back for More!" returns to the famed venue on April 17th at 7pm, directed by Richard Jay-Alexander and with musical direction by John Oddo.
Melissa Errico has starred in seven Broadway musicals, including Amour, composed by multi-Oscar-winning composer Michel Legrand (Yentl), for which she was nominated for a TONY Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, High Society, Anna Karenina, Dracula, and the 2009-2010 Broadway revival of White Christmas. Melissa's career began as Cosette in Les Miserables when she was only 18, for which she took a leave of absence from Yale University and returned to graduate with high honors and an art history/philosophy degree. That year, she went on to star as Eliza Doolittle in Fair Lady on Broadway, a role she reprised opposite John Lithgow at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles in 2003. In 2002, Melissa starred with Raul Esparza in The Sondheim Celebration's Sunday In The Park With George at The Kennedy Center, for which Stephen Sondheim wrote some new lyrics for her interpretation of Dot. She has also appeared opposite Jeremy Irons in Camelot at the Hollywood Bowl, a performance she reprised with Jeremy Irons in the summer of 2011 for one-night only on Broadway at The Shubert Theater. In 2010, Melissa was nominated for Best Actress in a Play at the Drama Desk Awards for her work in the title role of George Bernard Shaw's Candida, and during the summer of 2011, Melissa co-starred with Alec Baldwin in Gift Of The Gorgon by Peter Shaffer. Her film credits include Frequency, Life Or Something Like It (opposite Angelina Jolie), and the independent film Patrimony. She has been a series regular on Darren Starr's CBS show Central Park West and appeared in numerous network guest star roles, including on Six Degrees and Miss Match.
Melissa has appeared with the Cleveland Orchestra and the New Jersey Symphony with Steven Reineke, the Royal Philharmonic at The Palladium Theater, and the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, and has toured with such conductors as Michael Tilson Thomas, and concert artists like Brian Stokes Mitchell and Michael Feinstein. Her most recent solo CD, Legrand Affair, produced by Phil Ramone, is a celebration of the songs of Legrand, who orchestrated and conducted a 100-piece symphony for the recording, and collaborated with Melissa as he has done only a handful of times, with artists including Barbra Streisand, Sarah Vaughn and Johnny Mathis.
