Manchester, VT: TONY AWARD® Nominees Orfeh and Andy Karl will perform at the Southern Vermont Arts Center’s (SVAC) Arkell Pavilion on Friday, September 2 at 8PM as part of the BROADWAY IN VERMONT Concert Series sponsored by Berkshire Bank and hosted by TONY AWARD® Winner Christian Hoff (Jersey Boys).
After appearing in Pretty Woman (their 3rd Broadway show together),this power couple is back again with their own concert LEGALLY BOUND. The sexy, funny, and enormously talented duo tear through an eclectic mix of pop, R&B, and Broadway show tunes that are sure to excite and delight! Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright with music direction by the incomparable Steven Jamail.
Together, Orfeh and Andy Karl have had an impressive run as one of Broadway’s greatest couples, both on and off the stage. She has a “powerhouse voice” (The New York Times). He is “a theater world heartthrob” (The New York Times).Although they met while doing the Broadway production of Saturday Night Fever, their irrepressible chemistry became the stuff of legend when they co-starred in Legally Blonde, which garnered Orfeh a TONY® nomination. Karl earned his own TONY® nods for Rocky, On the Twentieth Century, and Groundhog Day (for which he received an OLIVIER AWARD®).
The Summer series, running from July to September 2022, is sponsored by BERKSHIRE BANK and is presented in collaboration with the Southern Vermont Arts Center, Christian Hoff, and Old Mill Road Media.
The final concert in the series is on Saturday, September 17, 2022. Join TONY AWARD® Winner DONNA McKECHNIE (A Chorus Line) in TAKE ME TO THE WORLD: THE SONGS OF STEPHEN SONDHEIM.
