Well known for her role as Christine in the Las Vegas production of “Phantom of the Opera,” classically-trained c will take center stage at University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Bayou Theater to perform an evening of classic showtunes on Friday, Jan. 18 at 7:30 p.m.

Her performance, titled “There’s No Tune Like a Showtune,” showcases her ability to sing just about anything, from opera to Broadway to the blues.

Her previous theater credits include “Hair,” “Million Dollar Quartet,” as well as five years in her dream role as Christine in “Phantom.”

“Having an artist of Kristen’s caliber in the Bayou Theater is another opportunity for the community to see an outstanding performance in our beautifully renovated theater,” said Bayou Theater Managing Director Alex Malone.

“Kristen, along with her pianist and musical director Philip Fortenberry will take the audience on a musical journey from the classic showtunes of Rodgers and Hammerstein to modern musical hits. You won’t want to miss it.”
