“BACK TO BROADWAY”
A Salute to the Return of Musical Theatre With Broadway’s DAVID BURNHAM & Friends
Featuring the Star of such classic shows as WICKED, THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA and JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICAL DREAMCOAT…
DAVID BURNHAM will be joined by some of the Bay Area’s favorite Musical Theatre performers in an evening looking back and looking forward to the past and future of one of America’s Greatest Pastimes… The Broadway Musical!
David Burnham was last seen on Broadway in the mega-hit musical, “Wicked”, playing Fiyero, a role that he originated in the developmental workshops of the show. He is an original Broadway cast member of the musical “The Light In The Piazza”, performing both on the Tony Awards and the PBS telecast “Live From Lincoln Center.” He is the recipient of the prestigious “Helen Hayes Award” for Best Actor as well as the Best Actor “Garland Award” for his portrayal of Fabrizio in the national tour of “The Light In The Piazza.”
David first gained critical acclaim when, after a two year search, he was chosen to replace Donny Osmond as Joseph in the national tour of “Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” (Dramalogue Award). He toured nationally in another Andrew Lloyd Webber blockbuster playing Peter in “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Last year in NYC, he starred in the new Off-Broadway show “The Best Is Yet to Come – The Music Of Cy Coleman”. He was the voice of the Prince in the Warner Bros. animated feature “The King And I,” and can be heard on the soundtracks to “Ghepetto,” and “Home On The Range”.
David performs with symphonies all over the country and his solo concert has been seen in the United States, Canada, and Europe. He has recorded two solo albums, his self-titled CD and “One Day.”
