“Elena Shaddow has a soprano of lovely warmth and agility.” –The New York Times

After a sold-out solo debut at 54 Below last fall, Broadway leading lady Elena Shaddow returns to kick off 2015 with an exciting evening dedicated to her favorite contemporary composers. Elena recently played Sister Sophia in the NBC live television event The Sound of Music, and played Francesca in The Bridges of Madison County. Her Broadway credits include Anne Dindon in La Cage Aux FollesThe Woman in WhiteFiddler on the RoofNineSweet Smell of Success, and Les Miserables. She starred as Fanny in Fanny at City Center Encores, played Magnolia inShowboat at the Royal Albert Hall, and received a Helen Hayes Best Actress nomination for playing Clara in the first national tour of The Light in the Piazza. Possessing one of the most beautiful voices in theater today, Elena has had the good fortune to perform the works—on Broadway and regionally—of her favorite contemporary composers, to whom she pays tribute in this show Always Better: The New Golden Age of Musicals.
