For the first time in Australia – Broadway and West End music theatre star Sierra Boggess to perform at Hamer Hall in June 2017
Broadway and West End music theatre star Sierra Boggess, will make her debut Australian tour from Saturday 3 June 2017, performing in Sydney, and Brisbane as well as Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall.
Regarded by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber as “… the best, the best Christine certainly!” in Phantom of the Opera, this international award winning music theatre superstar will wow audiences with her magnificent voice, acclaimed acting and captivating personality. It’s no wonder Andrew Lloyd Webber asked her to perform Christine in the award winning and highly acclaimed Phantom of the Opera 25th Anniversary Production at Royal Albert Hall.
Sierra is also a celebrated Broadway Disney Princess, having portrayed Ariel in The Little Mermaid on Broadway to high acclaim. On Broadway, she recently finished a season as Principal Mullins in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s adaption of the Jack Black favourite School of Rock.
Sierra’s career has seen her honoured with nominations for Drama Desk Awards, Drama League Awards, Laurence Olivier Awards and others. She has performed in concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall and London’s Royal Albert Hall with a host of stars and music theatre luminaries including Josh Groban, Nathan Lane (Tony Award winner and star of The Producers) and Julian Overdon (Downton Abbey & Person of Interest) at the BBC Proms.
Sierra Boggess’s one-off performance in Melbourne will mark the fourth year in a row that Arts Centre Melbourne has presented one of Broadway’s leading stars. Previous acts have included Kristen Chenoweth in 2014, Audra McDonald in 2015 and Megan Hilty in 2016.
