Following three intimate sold-out shows at New York's Appel Room and Los Angeles' The Broad Stage and Hotel Cafe in January, Lea recently announced that she will reprise her successful Intimate Evening With shows in North America with music from her upcoming album "Places." The shows will start with a limited run on May 1, 2017 where Lea will travel through North America in cities including Boston, Philadelphia, Connecticut, Seattle, San Francisco and Canada. Tickets are available now, and every pair purchased online includes a copy of "Places." Please visit www.leamichelemusic.com for all details.
"When it came time to name my album, I settled on 'Places' because this album for me represents a return to form, a return to the stage, and a return to the place I belong," Lea says. "When you perform on Broadway the word "Places" is the last thing you hear over the loudspeaker before a show is about to begin. "Places" I thought was the perfect title for this music and how it reflects who I am as an artist today and where I come from."
Lea Michele is best known for her performance as "Rachel Berry" on the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe, Grammy, and SAG award-winning Fox television series "Glee."
