Broadway and television star Megan Hilty (right) will make her debut Australian tour this June, performing at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s (QPAC’s) Concert Hall, on Thursday 9 June.
Accompanied by her four-piece band, including her musical director and pianist Matt Cusson and husband Brian Gallagher on guitar, Megan will take audiences on a trip through the American Songbook.
Best known for her portrayal of Ivy Lynn in the musical drama Smash, Hilty has just finished a season on Broadway, in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Noises Off.
Megan released her debut solo album in 2013, It Happens All The Time, which included fresh interpretations of compositions by contemporary songwriters and producers.
A native of Seattle, Hilty moved to New York City after graduating from the Carnegie Mellon University, and made her Broadway debut as Glinda in Wicked.
Having also starred as Lorelei Lee, the diamond-loving blonde made famous by Carol Channing, in the Encores! production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, she also received high praise for her portrayal of Doralee Rhodes in Broadway’s 9 to 5: The Musical.
Her career has seen her honoured with nominations for Lead Actress in a Musical at the Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Drama League Awards and L.A. Stage Alliance Ovation Awards.
