Christine Andreas Biography

Best known for her work on the Broadway stage, Ms. Andreas burst onto the New York theatre scene starring as Eliza Doolittle in the 20th Anniversary production of MY FAIR LADY opposite the Royal Shakespeare Company's Ian Richardson and garnering the Theatre World Award.
As revivals gained popularity, Ms. Andreas received two Tony nominations re-creating Laurey in OKLAHOMA! working with Billy Hammerstein and Agnes DeMilles, and as Frankie Frayne in ON YOUR TOES directed by the legendary George Abbott. Other Broadway credits include WORDS AND MUSIC with Sammy Cahn, Nancy in ANGEL STREET with Dina Merrill, Rebecca in RAGS, the short-lived Alice in the short-lived LEGS DIAMOND with the late, great and wonderful Peter Allen, and the Broadway bound and derailed Erte production of STARDUST. Ms. Andreas created the role of Marguerite St. Just on Broadway in the original production of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL opposite Douglas Sills and Terrence Mann. Recently, Ms. Andreas received rapturous notices for her portrayal of Vera Simpson in the Prince Music Theater's production of Rogers and Hart's PAL JOEY in Philadelphia. Philadelphia rewarded her performance with a Barrymore Award for Best Actress in a Musical and a sold-out three-week engagement of her one-woman show, Here's To The Ladies√Į¬Ņ¬Ĺ
"With the birth of my son, Mac, I took a pivotal detour. When he was diagnosed with pervasive developmental disabilities, I moved into concert work so that I could continue to sing and give him the attention he needed. And in concert, without a character, I realized I had stepped into a rich new musical world.
As Mac grew older and my need to be consumed in a character increased I allowed myself to collaborate with composer Martin Silvestri and writer Joel Higgins which led to my West End debut starring in their musical THE FIELDS OF AMBROSIA at the Aldwych Theatre in London followed by concerts with Marty in London, Paris, Rome, Australia and The White House."
Engagements in New York at the Caf√ɬ© Carlyle and the Algonquin's Oak Room prompted the New York Times to extol: "The Carlyle has selected the most obvious candidate from the next generation of Broadway sopranos"√Į¬Ņ¬Ĺ"She delicately kills with the sheer beauty of her voice "√Į¬Ņ¬Ĺ"She finds a blend of lyricism and sweet sensuality that only the finest Broadway voices can conjure." Liz Smith was moved to write: "Christine Andreas is everything anyone who loves romantic pop music could want - simply sine qua non." Her Carnegie Hall debut was hailed as √Į¬Ņ¬Ĺbrilliant', √Į¬Ņ¬Ĺdelicious' and √Į¬Ņ¬Ĺsexy' in Variety.
The natural next step was to capture her music on CD. So once again in collaboration with Silvestri, a Grammy nominated producer, they released Love Is Good. Here's To The Ladies, their second CD collaboration and a tribute to the great ladies of the theatre, recorded in London with a 45 piece orchestra; and most recently The Carlyle Set, a sophisticated set of contemporary standards recorded with a quartet of New York's most outstanding musicians, were both selected on USA Todays' top 10 list..
After the release of the CD she returned to The Café Carlyle in New York for an encore performance and repeated it once again at the Catalina Grill in Los Angeles. The LA Times called her "a mesmerizing musical presence".
"So it's time to assume another character. It's a blessing when your life is directly reflected in your art, but that seems to be just exactly what's happening to me. On the heels of my son's moving into his own life in his own group home, I was offered the role of Margaret Johnson in the National Tour of "The Light in the Piazza".
In addressing Margaret's dilemma with her daughter Clara, I will now have a chance to explore day after day this profound shift in my life in this rare opportunity when all my worlds meet."
