Downtown Sessions at PAC NYC bring you closer to the artists you love.
Tony® and Emmy® Award-winning actress, singer, and producer LaChanze brings her electrifying presence to PAC NYC with the debut of an all-new, solo concert performance as part of our Downtown Sessions series.
Armed with the gift for dramatic storytelling, a sultry vocal dexterity, and an unparalleled talent for bringing complex female heroines to life, LaChanze first stole the hearts of Broadway fans when she originated the role of Ti Moune in Once on This Island, for which she received a Tony Award nomination. She took home her first Tony Award for her show-stopping performance as Celie in The Color Purple, and has recently received Tony nominations for her unforgettable turns as Donna Summer in Summer: The Donna Summer Musical and as Wiletta in Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Trouble in Mind. Her previous solo concert Feeling Good debuted at The Kennedy Center before touring the U.S. to wide critical acclaim. LaChanze has been hailed as “magnetic” by The New York Times, “irresistible” by The Washington Post, “compelling” by The New Yorker, “dazzling” by Variety and “bright and ebullient” by The Los Angeles Times.
Join us for an exhilarating evening of classic show tunes, contemporary jazz, and brand-new original material with Broadway treasure LaChanze.
