Signature Theatre and Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts announced today the cast for the third annual musical theater collaboration, Broadway In The Park (Friday, June 24 at 8PM). The show will welcome stars of stage and screen Megan Hilty and Lea Salonga to the Filene Center at Wolf Trap and will feature a cast of Signature favorites.
CAST & CREATIVE TEAM
Megan Hilty started her career playing Glinda in the Broadway, National Tour and Los Angeles companies of Wicked. Shortly after her 4.5 year run in Oz, she originated the role of Doralee in “9 to 5 the Musical.” But Hilty is probably best known for playing the triple-threat Ivy Lynn in the musical drama, Smash, on NBC. Her numerous television credits include “Annie, Live!,” “Sean Saves The World,” and playing the iconic Patsy Cline in “Patsy & Loretta,” earning her a Critic’s Choice Award nomination for Best Actress. Onstage, Hilty received nominations for Tony, Drama Desk & Drama League Awards for her portrayal of Brooke Ashton in the Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of “Noises Off” and is currently filming the first season of “The Pradeeps of Pittsburgh” for Amazon, which is set to air September 2023.
Lea Salonga, nicknamed the “Pride of the Philippines” (BroadwayWorld), first rose to international fame when she originated the role of Kim in Miss Saigon, for which she won an Olivier Award and a Tony Award. She has continued to win over audiences and critics with her roles as Éponine and Fantine in Les Misérables, Erzulie in Once on This Island, and as the singing voice of Disney princesses Jasmine (Aladdin) and Fa Mulan (Mulan and Mulan II).
The cast is rounded out with Signature Theatre performers Phillip Attmore (Signature’s After Midnight, Broadway’s Hello, Dolly!), Austin Colby (Signature’s West Side Story, Simply Sondheim), Felicia Curry (Signature’s The Scottsboro Boys, Broadway’s Into the Woods), Katie Mariko Murray (Signature’s Into the Woods, RENT), Kevin McAllister (Signature’s Ain’t Misbehavin’, Broadway’s Caroline, or Change), Tracy Lynn Olivera (Signature’s Assassins, A Little Night Music), Nova Y. Payton (Signature’s The Color Purple, PBS “Black Broadway: A Proud History, A Limitless Future”) and Bobby Smith (Signature’s No Place to Go, She Loves Me). The show will be directed by Signature Theatre Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner; Jon Kalbfleisch is music director and conductor.
