LaCHANZE – the Tony Award winning actress and concert star of The Color Purple, If/Then, Once on This Island and more – will introduce New York to an electric new concert “Feeling Good” at The Highline Ballroom on Monday, February 27, 2017 in anticipation of an upcoming national tour.
“Feeling Good is a peek into my life through song,” she explains. “Since our preview back in 2014 at Joe's Pub we have been reworking the material to include original music as well as new arrangements starting with the title song, arranged by Michael Olatuja. I’ve been flirting with the idea of a concert that explores my life for three years. I am currently working on my memoir and this process has inspired this evening of music. We use Jazz, Rock and Soul, along with contemporary Broadway compositions to take you on this journey.
When “Feeling Good” had its world premiere at Washington DC’s Kennedy Center last year, BroadwayWorld.com praised “her ability to deliver exceptional vocals mixed with authentic emotions. Add to that her charm, seemingly natural ability to draw the audience in as if the event is an intimate music sharing experience among friends.” DC Metro Theater Arts raved “LaChanze proved herself to be almost a volcanic, spontaneous force of nature, endowing each song with distinctive and very nuanced shadings appropriate to the mood of each lyric.”
LaCHANZE will present “Feeling Good” at The Highline Ballroom on Monday, February 27, 2017 at 8:00 PM. The venue is located at 431 West 16th Street, between Ninth and Tenth Avenues. Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 at the door. VIP tickets are available $65. Please visit HighlineBallroom.com for seats.
