Direct from starring as Elsa in the pre-Broadway engagement of Disney’s Frozen in Denver, Feinstein’s at the Nikko welcomes Broadway’s Caissie Levy for three performances only (November 16-18). Making her San Francisco cabaret debut, Caissie will perform fresh takes on songs from throughout her celebrated Broadway career, as well as share stories from her life on (and off) the stage.
Levy is currently originating the role of Elsa in the Denver world premiere and Broadway productions of Disney’s Frozen. She recreated the iconic role of Fantine in the 2014 revival of Les Misérables on Broadway and is perhaps best known to New York and London audiences for originating the roles of Molly in Ghost, and Sheila in the Tony Award-winning revival of Hair.
Levy’s other Broadway credits include Elphaba in the Broadway and Los Angeles productions of Wicked, Penny in the Broadway, 1st National Tour, and Toronto companies of Hairspray and Maureen in the national tour of Rent. Off-Broadway, she starred as Patti Davis and Julie Nixon in the world premiere of Michael John LaChiusa’s First Daughter Suite at The Public Theater, and as Sara in the Off-Broadway production of Murder Ballad.
Levy recently made her headlining solo concert debut at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops, singing the music of Kander & Ebb in honor of John Kander’s 90th birthday. She backed up Sir Rod Stewart in Las Vegas, was a guest soloist with The United States Military Academy at West Point, and has performed solo shows to sold-out audiences at Feinstein’s/54 Below, Joe’s Pub, Galapagos Arts Space, Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre, and The Hippodrome in London.
Recordings include the original cast albums of Ghost the Musical, Hair, and First Daughter Suite, and countless albums of new and seasoned composers alike, including her husband, composer/lyricist David Reiser. In 2013, Levy released her debut solo album, With You, featuring stripped-down arrangements of songs from her Broadway shows.
