Beautiful, soaring Broadway favorites balanced with lively and heart-tugging Irish melodies and humor – this is “Galway to Broadway--Ciarán Sheehan & Friends.”
Born in Dublin, Ireland, Ciaran grew up on both sides of the Atlantic dividing time between Dublin and New York. He made his Broadway debut in Les Miserables, and shortly thereafter was cast as Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera. After a year of playing Raoul on Broadway, Ciarán moved into the coveted role of The Phantom. He sang the role of the Phantom in over 1,000 performances over a period of two and a half years both on Broadway and in Toronto. Howard Kissel wrote in the New York Daily News: The show’s greatest asset is the glorious tenor of Ciaran Sheehan, who brings a rich understanding and depth to familiar melodies.
In “Galway to Broadway” Ciaran shares the stage with three of his “Friends.” Sarah Pfisterer, who has played Christine in The Phantom of the Opera for over 1,000 performances across the country, will join Ciaran for a number of memorable duets. Their rendition of The Music of the Night is literally breath-taking.
Bringing us back to his Irish roots, Ciaran will be joined by Heather Martin Bixler, an award-winning violinist who has taught and performed Irish music throughout the United States, Canada, and Ireland. She will accompany Ciaran on such memorable Irish favorites as Danny Boy and When Irish Eyes are Smiling. Ciaran’s third friend is Gabriel Donohue, an Irish born musician, singer and songwriter who most often performs on guitar and piano but also plays an array of instruments from bouzouki/mandolin to Irish and exotic percussion. Gabriel also provides a great deal of Irish humor and leaves the audience holding their sides with laughter.
Don’t miss this lovely evening of Broadway and Irish music and mirth!
