Michele Lee to Perform in Philadelphia and New Hope, PA in October 2016


Back from her long run in Broadway’s WICKED, Ms. Lee presents a new concert spotlighting the music of legendary Cy Coleman, including songs like “Nobody Does it Like Me” and “It’s Not Where You Start” from her Tony-nominated performance in the musical Seesaw, along with other magnificent work and some surprises from Coleman’s songbook.

One highlight of the show will be Michele’s interpretation of Broadway’s lead female character found in many Coleman musicals. Using a medley of his compositions including “Big Spender,” “Rules of the Road” and “I’m Gonna Laugh You Right Out of My Life,” Ms. Lee presents, “a loveable woman with a charitable heart.” The show will also feature Coleman favorites “The Best Is Yet to Come,” “Witchcraft” and others, from Sweet Charity to City of Angels and beyond.

Michele is starring in "Tale of the Allergist's Wife," the razor sharp new Broadway comedy written by Charles Busch.


Busch's play chronicles the spiritual turmoil of Marjorie (Linda Lavin), a middle-aged Upper West Side doyenne, and how her life changes when a stranger from the past (Michele Lee) arrives on her doorstep. This deliciously devious social satire is filled with wicked fun and delightful surprises.

Opened on November 2, 2000 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre 243 West 47th Street, New York, New York. Tickets are available online through TeleCharge or by phone at: 1-800-432-7250 or 212-239-6200.
