Cantor Dudu Fisher to Play Harris Theater in Millennium Park, 6/5
Celebrated cantor Dudu Fisher, best known for his role as Jean Valjean in the Israeli version of "Les Miserables" and star of best-selling Branson, Mo. show "Jerusalem," brings an exciting and visually stunning concert to Harris Theater at Millennium Park in Chicago on June 5.
In Branson, Mo., Fisher's "Jerusalem" show is a multi-media performance comprising songs, stories and videos about the capital city of his native Israel. Accompanied by a six-piece band, the show also features Shai Bachar as musical director and arranger. This was the first time a Jewish artist from Israel presented a show for an extended run in Branson, which received "Jerusalem" enthusiastically.
Based on his PBS special "Dudu Live From Israel," Fisher's Chicago concert will take audiences on an inspired journey connecting his talent as a Broadway performer, cantor, and contemporary artist with music as well as stories that celebrate the beauty of Israel's landscape, culture and people. Showcasing his phenomenal vocal talent and artistic range, the evening's repertoire will include songs performed both in English and Hebrew.
"Unlike my usual performances backed by a big band or symphony orchestra, this tour simply features me with a microphone and piano accompaniment," says Fisher. "We hope to create a more intimate setting, like watching the show from your living room, where I share songs and personal stories about my family and country. This year marks my 40th year in entertainment, so there is much to share and to celebrate!"
The show is part of a select run of dates in late May and early June visiting major cities such as New York City and Baltimore. The concert starts promptly at 7:30 pm. Visit www.dudufisher.com for more information.
