On Monday evening, composer Frank Wildhorn returned to the historic art deco lobby of Los Angeles’s Pantages Theatre for a very special edition of The Actors Fund’s Musical Mondays.  Wildhorn actually got his theatrical start in that very lobby in 1988, when the Nederlanders heard him play there and decided to bring him to New York. He wrote Jekyll & Hyde and Scarlet Pimpernel, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Wildhorn led Monday night’s spectacular show, which featured performances of his work by Deborah Cox (Jekyll & HydeAida), Janet Decal (WonderlandIn The Heights), Lisa Datz (The Full MontyHedwig and The Angry Inch), Carly Robyn Green (Recording Artist), Sam Harris (star of TV, theatre and recordings), Clint Holmes (Las Vegas headliner), Tracy Miller (HairsprayDracula) and Teal Wicks (Jekyll & HydeWicked).  They entertained the crowd with songs from some of Frank’s shows, including The Scarlet Pimpernel, Jekyll & Hyde, Wonderland, The Civil WarVictor/Victoria and Bonnie & Clyde, as well as some of his pop hits, such as the chart-topping “Where do Broken Hearts Go,” made famous by the late, great Whitney Houston.

This was one of the first times Wildhorn has performed his own songs in Los Angeles, and we’re incredibly honored that he chose to do it as a benefit for The Fund! And a special thank you to Western Council Members John Bowab and Marty Wiviott for kicking off the evening! It was such a fabulous event, we thought we’d share a few images with you!
