Lea Salonga has never been one-note. From a Filipino recording artist, she became an international sensation when she landed the starring role in the musical Miss Saigon. She later won a Tony Award for this outstanding performance. She also lent her singing voice to two Disney characters, Mulan and Jasmine. This year, she is set to reprise last year’s sold-out performance at Feinstein’s/54Below. 

She will do a total of 15 shows, a record breaker for a single run at that particular cabaret venue, according to Playbill.

Last year, The New York Times gave her Feinstein’s/54 Below show a stellar review: “Her program consisted mostly of an astutely chosen mixture of standards and contemporary songs, in which she abstained from wailing pyrotechnics to dig deeply into the lyrics and give one of the year’s most satisfying cabaret shows.”

This year’s edition is also a mingling of pop songs, Broadway favorites, and standards. Lea Salonga’s voice will be accompanied by guitar and piano music. The show runs from May 9 to 22.

The cabaret performance is part of her North American tour, which also includes 15 performances at various venues in the United States and Canada throughout April and May.
