PHANTOM OF THE OPERA'S Kristen Hertzenberg to Play Foundation Room, 10/23
Coming off her role as Christine in Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular at the Venetian Hotel, Kristen Hertzenberg steps beyond her theatre background to sing the music that has inspired her behind the scenes in her new show Kristen Hertzenberg - BEYOND THE STAGE. The show debuted to a sold-out house at the Art Square Theatre in July and will take place again on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 10:30pm at the Foundation Room atop Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Alongside a band of world-class musicians including two of the stars of Million Dollar Quartet, Kristen brings her own flavor to her favorite Blues, Country, Folk, Rock, and R&B songs.
Kristen studied classical singing as a young performer and ultimately earned a Master's degree in opera. In addition to her theatre credits, she frequently works with composers in Las Vegas recording demos and workshopping new musicals and has been featured on stage with orchestras across the country. She joined the Las Vegas Philharmonic for the third time this summer when she was featured alongside Clint Holmes in their "Fourth with the Phil" concert at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
Joining Kristen on the keys is Martin Kaye, an award-winning British singer/songwriter and piano man who currently stars as Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet at Harrah's and has just released his second album. He's been playing piano for 23 years, singing for 26, and just debuted his own show in Las Vegas. Seven Magazine just named him "Best Actor" in the Best of the City Awards for 2013.
Also in the band is Benjamin D. Hale, currently portraying Johnny Cash in Million Dollar Quartet after a six-year run in Phantom. He just completed his debut album with his Country/Blues/Rock band, The Crimson Balladeers.
Other band members include George Bryant on drums, Joel Ferguson on pedal steel, Argentine musician Pablo Gadda on guitar, and Mikey Hachey on bass.
