UGA Presents is bringing Tony Award winner Lea Salonga to Athens April 26 for a sold-out concert at the Performing Arts Center. Salonga’s 7:30 p.m. Hodgson Hall show is part of her “The Human Heart Tour” which is taking her to venues throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
Salonga rose to international fame in 1989 when she was selected to play Kim in the Broadway musical Miss Saigon. The role won her the Tony Award as well as Olivier, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World awards. She returned to Broadway as Erzulie, the goddess of love, in the revival of Once on This Island.
Salonga is also known to millions of Disney fans as the singing voice of Princess Jasmine in Aladdin and Fa Mulan in Mulan and Mulan II.
Tickets for the concert are sold out, but anyone interested in attending is encouraged to check the Performing Arts Center website periodically for updates on ticket availability: pac.uga.edu.
