Directed by Lance Roberts with technical direction by Jason Ellis, the show will feature hits from Harnick's greatest and most-popular shows, including Fiddler On The Roof and She Loves Me, both currently on Broadway. Jennifer also promises "several hidden gems" of rarely/if ever heard songs by the three-time Tony Award winner, with spectacular arrangements by Tedd Firth in varied styles, "jazz-infused, a little blues and more." "Mr. Harnick supplied three of the songs himself, that were either never in print or out of print," Jennifer noted, while a friend of the composer's provided a rarely-heard number from Harnick's "Hidden Treasures" album.
Jennifer, a popular "Don't Tell Mama" draw, whose regional credits include Sarah Brown opposite Broadway leading man Tom Wopat in Guys and Dolls, is known for her heartfelt, entertaining and exhilarating shows that highlight her wide vocal range.
Jennifer Roberts: She Loves...Sheldon! reunites the singer with her favorite collaborator Tedd Firth, the New York- based accompanist, jazz pianist and composer named by Stephen Holden of the New York Times as "the most gifted, stylistically far-ranging musical director on the New York nightclub scene." Jennifer is also thrilled to be joined by All Night Strut director and Broadway stage veteran Lance Roberts, currently appearing in The Robber Bridegroom at the Roundabout Theater, as well as Tom Hubbard, whom the New York Times calls ""Virtuosic..." and technical director Jason Ellis, known for his artistic and dynamic productions.
Jennifer has appeared as Guenevere in Camelot, directed by Tod Booth, and in both the soprano and alto roles in several versions of The All Night Strut, directed by Fran Charnas. She boasts numerous radio and television commercials, as well as film and television appearances. / www.jennifergroberts.com
