|Bursting onto the scene with her star-making performance in The Color Purple, Cynthia Erivo is swiftly approaching the haloed EGOT status. The classically trained actor—she graduated from the famed Royal Academy of Dramatic Art—with a powerhouse voice already has a Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award under her belt, and is now seamlessly making the transition from Broadway to the big screen. During this momentous time in her career, Erivo brings her rich vocals and radical talent to The Appel Room for a soulful evening of song.
This performance will be filmed for broadcast on PBS in the spring as part of the 17-time Emmy Award–winning series Live From Lincoln Center. Please note that cameras will be present.
