BWW Reviews: 4 STARS Concert With Lea, Sierra, Ramin, And Yu
by Oliver Oliveros - Jun 17, 2013

Given the varied theater credits under their names, one would have to carefully consider what type of show--in a concert form--would showcase their vocal abilities in a way that they need not upstage one another. To make things more interesting, or complicated, what if you would include Japan's very own TV and theater star Yu Shirota in the already mixed bag of performers? How will he fit in?
