Mike Eldred, one of America’s most beloved tenors, performs one night only at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival

Mike Eldred, Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival’s returning concert artist and spectacular Jean Valjean in PSF’s Les Misérables (2015), will present a one-night-only concert on Monday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts at DeSales University.

“I’m excited to return to PSF to share this evening of inspiring, familiar and goose bump-inducing songs with my friends,” says Eldred.

Eldred and pianist and music director Jeff Steinberg (Count Basie and Maynard Ferguson Bands, Nashville and London Symphony Orchestras), will present an exciting evening of some of the most beloved tenor songs from Broadway, the American songbook, and beyond.

An accomplished Broadway artist, Mike Eldred has performed the role of Jean Valjean in Les Misérables on Broadway and across the United States.

“Mike’s concert last summer was sold out, and for good reason,” says Patrick Mulcahy, the Festival’s producing artistic director. “In addition to his soaring singing voice, he has a wonderful way of putting an audience at ease, making us all feel like he has invited us into his living room for a warm and friendly gathering.”

Tickets for the one-night-only concert are $38 and the performance will be held in  the Main Stage of the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts.

For tickets, contact PSF at 610-WILL[9445], ext. 1, or [Read more…]

Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival opens The Hound of the Baskervilles: An Uproarious Comic Adaptation of a Classic Mystery Thriller

Three actors portray 16 roles in “Brit-Wits” Steven Canny and John Nicholson’s comedic retelling of a classic Sherlock Holmes story, The Hound of the Baskervilles, which will open at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts at DeSales University in Center Valley, Pa.

The Hound of the Baskervilles previews June 21 and 22, opens June 23, and runs through July 16 in PSF’s Schubert Theatre. Jim Helsinger, artistic director at Orlando Shakespeare Theater, returns to PSF to direct Hound, “a comedy atlas using slapstick, witty wordplay, disappearing pants, and physical comedy.”

Greg Wood, a Festival favorite, plays the famous role of Sherlock Holmes who attempts to solve the mystery of a curse linked to the Baskerville fortune—a curse that causes sudden death at the fangs of a mysterious beast that lurks on the moor. His loyal counterpart Watson (played by Carl N. Wallnau) and Baskerville heir Sir Henry (Jacob Dresch) embark to the moor to let the sleuthing commence.

As the plot thickens and suspicions rise, these three veteran PSF actors become sinister servants, boisterous ladies, escaped convicts, and butterfly collectors as Holmes and Watson attempt to unlock the mysteries unfolding in and around Baskerville Hall. [Read more…]
