Lena Hill's LENA & FRIENDS Set for The Lemon Room @ ZajacStudio, 11/19
The lemon room @ ZajacStudio is delighted to welcome Lena Hill as she makes her cabaret debut accompanied by LA favorite musical director Cassie Nickols. The evening includes tunes ranging from the legit standards of Rogers & Hammerstein to the newest showstoppers from recent Broadway seasons. This diverse set of songs gives Lena a chance to show a voice that has no limits, a shimmery and vibrant head voice to a belt that could peel paint off the walls!
Three of Lena's cast-mates from last season's award winning and LA Critic's Pick production of 'Company' join her in duets from shows like Chess, Carousel, and Wicked. Jon Hand, Zeffin Quinn Hollis, and Ben Rovner are all actors with extensive musical theatre credits now based in Los Angeles. The four capitalize on an intuitive and electric ensemble built through twelve weeks of sold out performances earlier this year at the Crown City Theatre.
