Darcie Roberts to Make TexARTS Debut, 11/2-3
Broadway triple-threat, Darcie Roberts will make her TexARTS debut with two special performances, Nov. 2 & 3 at 7 p.m. She will be joined by pianist Dustin L. Struhall.
Best known for her celebrated roles in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Curtains and Aida, Roberts made her Broadway debut at the age of 19 in the Tony Award-winning musical Crazy for You. Throughout her career she has had the privilege to share the stage with such greats as Tommy Tune, Jason Robert Brown, Bea Arthur and Angela Lansbury.
Ms. Roberts' performances have been called "warmhearted" and "instinctive" by the Houston Chronicle, while her comic turns have been compared to Buster Keaton, Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett by critics around the country. The Hollywood Reporter says her awe-inspiring voice is "wonderful" and "versatile." Broadway legend, Tommy Tune calls Ms. Roberts' singing, dancing and acting a "dream," while Barry Manilow says "she is the real deal."
"Darcie is a true star and TexARTS is proud to present her show right in Lakeway's backyard," said Robert M. Armitage, Producing Artistic Director of TexARTS. "Her concert is a phenomenal opportunity for Lake Travis residents to see a Broadway superstar at work."
The evening of incredible show-stopping numbers will highlight the big moments in Ms. Roberts' Broadway career and will feature classics by George Gershwin and tunes from Cabaret, Funny Girl and more.
All performances will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the TexARTS Kam and James Morris Theatre (2300 Lohman's Spur, Austin, TX 78734). The cocktail lounge will open one hour prior to curtain.
