Mandy Gonzalez, who co-starred in the short-lived musical Dance of the Vampires, will kick off the new “Front and Concert” concert series next month. On June 14 Gonzalez will offer an evening of song featuring tunes from the worlds of Broadway, rock and jazz. Her Vampires co-star, Max von Essen, will be the evening’s special guest, and Gonzalez will relate stories about that ill-fated musical as well as her time spent touring with Bette Midler. Jamie McGonnigal directs the 7 PM concert.
The “Front and Concert” series — the second Monday night of every month — continues in July with Bare cast members, and August will spotlight the talents of Gavin Creel and special guest Laura Benanti. The series hopes to present new and familiar theatre talent in an intimate setting.
Mandy Gonzalez starred as Sarah in Dance of the Vampires. She won an Obie Award for her work in the Off Broadway musical Eli’s Comin’, and was most recently on Broadway in Aida.
