Songs from the epic Broadway musicals Evita, Phantom of the Opera, Cats, and Sunset Boulevard are among the many gems of mega-composer Andrew Lloyd Webber to be featured in this intimate cabaret-style concert. National performers Tielle Baker, Kelly Brandeburg, and Broadway star Kyle Martin join music director and pianist Evan Alparone on the Firehouse stage.
The World of Webber showcases three outstanding veteran stage talents, who have come together for this special performance, and reflect the incredible range of Lloyd Webber's musical genius:
Tielle Baker is a musical theatre and opera star who has appeared in over 50 productions with over 20 different companies, including performances at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and in international music festivals in Italy and Germany. Familiar to Bay Area theater-goers, her performances have been described as "absolutely on fire and entertaining in every way," according to Voice of Opera.
Audiences will recognize Kyle Martin from his starring role as the "Piano Man" in the Billy Joel/Twyla Tharp Broadway smash hit musical "Movin' Out" during the 2007-2009 National Tour. "Kyle Martin isn't just good, he's spectacular!" -Reno Gazette-Journal.
Kelly Brandeburg performs on stages throughout the country, and among her long list of theater credits are starring roles in Jekyll & Hyde, The Wizard of Oz, and The Secret Garden. She holds musical theatre degrees from both the American Musical & Dramatic Academy and the New School University in New York.
Musical director Evan Alparone brings his considerable background as conductor and accompanist to the show. He has worked on over 35 musicals, including recent productions with TriValley Repertory Theatre, Utah Shakespeare Festival, Boxcar Theatre, and the Douglas Morrison Theater.
