An intimate evening with the composer and some of today's great theatrical voices, featuring songs from Victor/Victoria, Jekyll & Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Civil War, Dracula, and Frank's upcoming shows, Cyrano, Vienna, Waiting For The Moon, and Havana. Frank may even break out some songs from his Linda Eder catalog, his #1 hit "Where Do Broken Hearts Go?" by Whitney Houston, and some other surprises. Joining Wildhorn are Broadway stars Rob Evan, who played the title role in Jekyll & Hyde on Broadway; Kate Shindle, a former Miss America who also starred in that show; Michael Lanning, who appeared on Broadway in Wildhorn's The Civil War; and Tracy Miller, who currently plays Penny Pingleton in Hairspray.
Wildhorn's works span the worlds of popular, theatrical and classical music. In 1999, Frank became the first American composer in twenty-two years to have three shows running simultaneously on Broadway: Jekyll & Hyde (written with Leslie Bricusse), which received two Tony nominations; The Scarlet Pimpernel (written with Nan Knighton), which received four Tony nominations; and The Civil War (written with Jack Murphy & Gregory Boyd), which received two Tony nominations. These shows continue to be seen in productions around the country and throughout the world. Artists who have recorded and performed Frank's music include Natalie Cole, Kenny Rogers, Sammy Davis Jr., Liza Minnelli, Julie Andrews, Freddie Jackson, Deana Carter, Patti LaBelle, Amy Grant, Ben Vereen, Regina Belle, The Moody Blues, Jeffrey Osborne, Stacy Lattisaw, Dennis DeYoung, Molly Hatchet, Brenda Russell, John Raitt, Johnny Mathis, and Colm Wilkinson, to name a few.
