Broadway's Sierra Boggess Will Return to Feinstein's at the Nikko, 4/17-19
After a sold-out engagement in January 2014, Hotel Nikko San Francisco and Michael Feinstein are thrilled to welcome Broadway and West End star, Sierra Boggess, back to Feinstein's at the Nikko for three performances only: Thursday, April 17 (8 p.m.); Friday, April 18 (8 p.m.); and Saturday, April 19 (7 p.m.).
Broadway knows her as Ariel in The Little Mermaid, Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera and as aspiring opera star Sharon Graham in Master Class. London knows her for her Olivier Award-nominated performance in Love Never Dies and as Fantine in LES MISERABLES.
Now, San Francisco audiences will, once again, see a brand new side of this Drama Desk and Olivier Award-nominated actress as she brings back her acclaimed one-woman show, Awakening. One of Broadway's most promising new talents, audiences can expect a range of tunes from songwriters both new and old, and vocals that stretch from the sublime to the divine.
Boggess will be joined on-stage by Summer Boggess on cello and Brian Hertz (Musical Director) on piano. An album of Awakening - recorded in August 2013 at 54 Below in New York City - will be available for purchase that evening.
Located within Hotel Nikko (222 Mason Street, San Francisco), Feinstein's at the Nikko presents a wide range of entertainers from stage and screen all within an intimate 140-seat cabaret setting. There is a $20 food and beverage minimum per person inside the showroom, which guests can use towards cocktails as well as a variety of small plates crafted exclusively for Feinstein's at the Nikko by Executive Chef Philippe Striffeler, through Restaurant Anzu. Cheese and dessert platters will also be available in the showroom.
Sierra Boggess's Broadway credits include a 25th Anniversary engagement in The Phantom of the Opera, the revival of Master Class and The Little Mermaid (Drama Desk and Drama League nominations, Broadway.com Award - Favorite Breakthrough Performance). London credits include LES MISERABLES, the 25th Anniversary Concerts of The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall and Love Never Dies (Olivier Award nomination). Other New York theatre credits include the final cast of off-Broadway's Love, Loss And What I Wore and Music in the Air for Encores! Boggess also starred in the Las Vegas production of The Phantom of the Opera. Recordings include the 25th Anniversary Concert of The Phantom of the Opera (also available on DVD), the Symphonic Recording of Love Never Dies, The Little Mermaid, Andrew Lippa's A Little Princess and Rodgers & Hammerstein at the Movies with the John Wilson Orchestra.
