Bucks County Playhouse is welcoming a trio of powerhouse Broadway singers for a series of concerts to kick off its 2023 Visiting Artist Series. The three singers who are individually covering music made famous by some of the most popular women of song, will appear in three solo concerts in February, March and April.
Carter Calvert, familiar to audiences from the Playhouse’s production of Always…Patsy Cline, Yardley’s Christy Altomare from Broadway’s Anastasia and Elizabeth Ward Land from Broadway’s Amazing Grace will each take the stage of the Playhouse, 70 S. Main St. in New Hope, for one night. Tickets are on sale now at buckscountyplayhouse.org or by calling the box office at 215-862-2121.
The Visiting Artist Series represents one of the few times on the calendar when outside producers take the stage to showcase their work. Performers from across the country and around the globe join local favorites for a lineup of crowd-pleasing fare that runs through the end of the year.
Altomare hits the stage Feb. 18, at 8 p.m. This Broadway sweetheart sold out two performances with her solo concert debut at the Playhouse in 2022. She originated the role of Anya in the Broadway production of Anastasia for which she received the Theatre World Award, and was nominated for an Outer Critics Award and a Drama Desk Award for lead actress in a musical.
Ward Land’s Still Within The Sound of My Voice: The Songs of Linda Ronstadt hits the stage March 18, at 8 p.m. She previously appeared in Amazing Grace, Memphis and The Scarlet Pimpernel. Her show, the winner of the 2020 Bistro Award, touches on genres ranging from rock, country, folk, light opera, big band and mariachi.
Calvert is bringing Viva La Diva to the stage April 1, at 2 p.m. This recording artist, who has appeared in Cats, Smokey Joe’s Cafe and the Tony-nominated It Ain’t Nothin’ But The Blues, floats between Broadway, pop, jazz and country in her hilarious yet heartfelt take on “making it in the biz.”
Tickets start at $45; special rates available for groups of 10 or more.
