As the tragic character "Lucy" in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde, from composer Frank Wildhorn, Eder blew the roof off of New York's Plymouth Theatre each night as she belted out signature songs "Someone Like You" and "A New Life". Her Broadway debut, for which she was rewarded with a Drama Desk nomination, sent her already rapidly rising star blazing across the sky, securing her spot as one of America's most beloved singers and dynamic live performers. While many considered Eder snubbed out of a Tony Award nomination, she did bring home a Theatre World Award for Best Broadway Debut in 1997.
Eder launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album and soon established a vital niche as America's most popular and acclaimed new interpreter of pop standards and theatrical songs with 15 solo albums and 12 musical recordings. Those albums highlight Eder's abundant vocal gifts as well as her skill for delivering dramatic, emotionally resonant interpretations of familiar songs while making them her own.
The concert stage remains the mainstay of Eder's career. She has performed for sold-out crowds in venues across the country and throughout Europe. She has been featured on numerous PBS television concert specials including Clay Aiken's Tried & True; Hallelujah Broadway; Linda Eder: The PBS Concert; Best of Broadway: Broadway's Leading Ladies; Best of Broadway: Love Songs; Jim Brickman plays The Disney Songbook; and more. Her 2001 holiday concert, Christmas Stays the Same was broadcast on Bravo TV and continues to be a popular selling DVD.
