Lynda Carter will grace the stage at the Williamsburg Lodge as part of the Virginia Arts Festival on May 29 in two cabaret performances as part of the Festival Williamsburg line up. Best known for her work on the TV series “Wonder Woman,” Carter’s albums including “At Last” have appeared on Billboard’s top ten lists and she recently toured the US playing venues including Lincoln Center in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
Seen as “Mama Morton” in the West End production of Chicago, Ms. Carter will be filling the Broadway Spotlight slot during the Virginia Arts Festival. Previous performers for this intimate event include Tony award-winning Patti LuPone and Broadway’s favorite ingénue, Kelli O’Hara. “The Broadway Spotlight show at the Williamsburg Lodge is always one of our most anticipated events and we are delighted to add Ms. Carter to the line up,” Festival Director Rob Cross stated. Previously scheduled Broadway and television actress Jane Krakowski requested to cancel her engagement with the Virginia Arts Festival for the 2011 season, as she is expecting a baby later this spring.
Lynda Carter is “blessed with an enormous range and interpretive chops” (Washington Examiner). Singing professionally since the age of 14, she is more widely known for her television career, but Carter considers music her first love. Carter’s concert is part of the Festival Williamsburg weekend which also includes jazz legends Chick Corea and Gary Burton on May 27 and super slick swing masters Big Bad Voodoo Daddy on May 28.
