An Evening with Headley Headley
Join us as we honor our beloved supporters, the late Wilfred and Ann Lee Konneker, with a very special night featuring the soaring vocals and elegant repertoire of Tony and Grammy Award-winner Heather Headley. Headley’s Broadway career began in 1997 when she originated the role of Nala in Disney’s The Lion King, followed by her Tony-Award winning title role in Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida. She has gone on to find success in the R&B and Gospel recording industry, with multiple Grammy nominations to her credit, including an Award in 2009 for her album Audience of One. Headley made her triumphant return to Broadway in 2016, taking on the role of Shug Avery in The Color Purple, and can currently be seen as a series regular in Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias, as well as in a recurring role in CBS’ Chicago Med.
