The Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor presents actress and singer Mandy Gonzalez on Monday, August 27, at 8 PM. As part of Bay Street’s Music Monday series, Gonzalez will bring her talents to the stage in a new cabaret show “Mandy Gonzalez: Fearless!” showcasing songs from her new debut album.
Gonzalez has graced Broadway stages in Aida (2003-2004) and Wicked (2010-2011), but is most known for her starring role as Angelica Schuyler in Hamilton, which she took on in September 2016. In addition to Hamilton, Gonzalez currently lends her talents to the CBS TV series “Madam Secretary,” in the role of Lucy Knox.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator and former star of Hamilton, referred to Gonzalez as “one of the greatest singers on Earth,” which explains why he also casted her in his first Broadway musical In the Heights, as Nina. She will perform her signature song, from this first musical, “Breathe,” that Miranda wrote for her.
Guests can also expect a performance of new songs and renditions of classics, like her cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run.”
To go along with the “Fearless” title, a Fearless Female Choir will showcase local talents of kids and adults that will join Gonzalez on the stage for a few songs. One of these local singers is Reilly Rose Schombs, from Pierson High School.
