PALA – Pala Casino Spa Resort will present multiple award-winning actress and singer Lea Salonga Saturday, March 18, performing live indoors at the Events Center. The show will start at 8 p.m.
Salonga is renowned across the world for her powerful voice and perfect pitch. She is best known for her Tony Award winning role in "Miss Saigon." In addition to the Tony, she has won the Olivier, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World Awards, in the field of musical theater. She was also the first Asian to play Eponine in the musical "Les Misérables" on Broadway and returned to the beloved show as Fantine in the 2006 revival. Many fans of all ages recognize Lea as the singing voice of Princess Jasmine from "Aladdin" and Fa Mulan for "Mulan" and "Mulan II." For her portrayal of the beloved princesses, the Walt Disney Company bestowed her with the honor of "Disney Legend."
Most recently, Salonga starred in the critically acclaimed Sony musical-drama "Yellow Rose" and stars in the Netflix animated series "CentaurWorld." She also filmed the first season of "Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin," a reboot of the popular series for HBO Max. In August 2021, she released her single "Dream Again," and, in November, "Lea Salonga: Live with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra from Sydney Opera House" aired as part of "Great Performances" on PBS.
