Broadway stars, Jessica Hendy and David Burnham, are teaming up to celebrate the life and career of the beloved singer and actress Olivia Newton-John!
With a 60-year career as an entertainer, Olivia Newton-John was a celebrated artist whose work impacted and inspired so many people around the globe. It all started with music, of course. She was a four-time Grammy Award winner who music career included fifteen Top 10 songs, including five songs that made it to #1. Her enormous popularity carried over to the movies too, where she secured her legendary status by starring in such iconic roles as Sandy in Grease and Kira in Xanadu.
Jessica Hendy is a vocal powerhouse who just closed the recent Broadway revival of CATS. She is the only person that has the distinction to have been in the original Broadway production of CATS, the National tour, and the Broadway revival. She recently made her Radio City Music Hall debut in The New York Spring Spectacular, alongside the world famous ROCKETTES.
David Burnham was last seen on Broadway in the mega-hit musical, Wicked, playing Fiyero, a role that he originated in the developmental workshops of the show. OC audiences might also fondly remember David’s starring turn in the Light in the Piazza at South Coast Repertory – a show he appeared in on Broadway, as well.
For this special engagement, Jessica and David will perform their favorite songs from Olivia’s incredible catalogue in an emotional celebration of her life and legacy.
