Faith Prince

Join us for an evening with Tony Award winner Faith Prince. From her memorable Broadway triumphs, to tales and songs from her early Off-Broadway gems, to her latest Broadway roles, the evening sparkles with doses of Faith’s quirky trademark humor, as well as touching moments filled with pathos.

“Faith Prince is a singer who can define a character in a few bars of music, a talent so rare and valuable that her absence from Broadway, however temporary, is indeed a crime.”
–Charles Isherwood, Variety
