Best known for his Tony-nominated, Grammy-winning portrayal of Elder Price in The Book of Mormon and as Elijah in HBO’s Girls, Andrew Rannells earned a second Tony nomination for his role in Falsettos at Lincoln Center Theater in 2017. Other Broadway credits include Jersey Boys, Hairspray, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and Hamilton. For one night only in the gorgeous Appel Room, he brings his signature blend of superb vocal prowess and wry wit to a sparkling set of songs.
About Live From Lincoln Center at The Appel Room…Over four nights in December, five of musical theater’s biggest stars celebrate the rich musical traditions of Broadway and beyond. Set in the beautiful Appel Room, with floor-to-ceiling views of Central Park, this series shines the spotlight on the distinctive voices and talents of Leslie Odom Jr., Andrew Rannells, Sutton Foster with special guest Jonathan Groff, and Stephanie J. Block. Each hour-long, cabaret-style performance is crafted around signature songs and music that has shaped each artist’s journey, all performed with a world-class band and the occasional surprise guest. All shows will be filmed in front of a live audience for broadcast on PBS in the spring as part of the 17-time Emmy Award–winning series Live From Lincoln Center and online on Broadway HD.
*This concert will be filmed for Live From Lincoln Center. Cameras will be present.
