Linda Eder Returns to PlayhouseSquare with SONGBIRDS-SONGS MADE FAMOUS BY WOMEN Tonight
Linda Eder's diverse repertoire spans Broadway, standards, pop, country and jazz. And now she returns to PlayhouseSquare with "Songbirds-Songs Made Famous by Women." She performs tonight, February 2nd at 8 pm in PlayhouseSquare's intimate Ohio Theatre. (Tickets: $49.50, $39.50 & $10 smart Seats, on sale at 216-241-6000, playhousesquare.org and the Ticket Office.)
As the tragic character "Lucy" in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde, Eder blew the roof off of New York's Plymouth Theatre each night as she belted out signature songs "Someone Like You" and "A New Life". Her Broadway debut, for which she was rewarded with a Drama Desk nomination, sent her already rapidly rising star blazing across the sky, securing her spot as one of America's most beloved singers and dynamic live performers.
Eder launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album and soon established a vital niche as America's most popular and acclaimed new interpreter of pop standards and theatrical songs with 14 solo albums. Those albums highlight Eder's abundant vocal gifts as well as her skill for delivering dramatic, emotionally resonant interpretations of familiar songs while making them her own.
The concert stage remains the mainstay of her career. She has performed for sold-out crowds across the country and throughout Europe. Her concerts have been televised on Bravo and PBS. Trail Mix, her primetime Animal Planet special, was a natural extension of her love of animals.
Eder has performed at many prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Town Hall, The Kennedy Center and Radio City Music Hall. Always touring in good company, her collaborations include the late Oscar-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch, Tony-winner Michael Feinstein and Keith Lockhart, conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra.
