One of Broadway's best leading ladies and performers, Kelli O'Hara is set to grace the stage at Mercyhurst's Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center next month.
Known best for her portrayal of Anna Leonowens in The King and I — which won her the 2015 Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical as well as Grammy, Outer Critics, Olivier, and Drama League nominations — O'Hara's talents have been showcased across many productions. Other Broadway credits include Jekyll & Hyde, Follies, Sweet Smell of Success, Dracula the Musical, The Light in the Piazza, The Pajama Game, South Pacific, Nice Work If You Can Get It, The Bridges of Madison County, and Kiss Me Kate, along with other West End and Off-Broadway roles.
O'Hara's talents extend beyond the stage, with multiple film and television credits to the performer's name. Most notably, O'Hara played Mrs. Darling in the 2014 NBC production of Peter Pan Live! as well as a 10-episode stint on the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why as Jackie in its second season.
A frequent concert performer, O'Hara's productions have gained international acclaim, having performed in such locations as Carnegie Hall and Tokyo, among many others. She is also a regular on PBS's live telecasts, The Kennedy Center Honors, and often performs with The New York Philharmonic.
