Linda Eder, Broadway star and Theatre World Award winner is coming to Needham. One of the greatest voices of our time, Linda Eder’s diverse repertoire spans Broadway, Standards, Pop, Country, and Jazz.
She began her career right out of high school, singing all around her home state, and eventually landing a gig at Harrah’s Casino in Atlantic City. But it was her appearance on the 1987 season of “Star Search,” during which she won for an unprecedented 12 straight weeks, which attracted the attention of audiences and record companies alike.Linda launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album and soon established herself as one of America’s most popular and acclaimed new interpreters of Pop, Standard and Theatrical genres. She released two more solo albums before starring in the Broadway production of Jekyll & Hyde, as the tragic character Lucy. Jekyll & Hyde was her Broadway debut, and she was rewarded with a Drama Desk nomination.
