Broadway’s SHOSHANA BEAN will return to London to perform her fourth studio album, Spectrum live in London at Cadogan Hall on 9 September 2018 with an 18 piece band. Special guests to be announced.
Spectrum thrills with a fresh new take on the classic tradition of big band. Inspired largely by Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, and Barbra Streisand, Spectrum promises to be Shoshana’s most impressive project to date. Backed by an 18 piece big band with arrangements by Grammy award-nominated arranger Alan Ferber, Bean’s powerhouse vocals, for which she has become known, are visceral and heartfelt. She weaves effortlessly through haunting originals, new workings of contemporary hits and beloved classics.
Shoshana is a veteran of the Broadway stage having made her debut in the original cast of Hairspray and starring as the very first replacement for Elphaba in Wicked. She won a IRNE Award for her performance as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl and earned a Jeff Award nomination for her portrayal of CeeCee Bloom in the pre-Broadway musical production of Beaches. She has sold out solo concerts around the globe, lent her voice to countless films and TV shows, amassed millions of YouTube views, and performed with Ariana Grande, David Foster, Postmodern Jukebox, Brian McKnight, and Michael Jackson.
