Tony- and Emmy Award-winning Broadway favorite LaChanze will bring her Feeling Good concert tour back to the Highline Ballroom in New York City for a single performance, January 15 at 8 PM.

The tour is supporting her new EP, which contains its title song by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley from the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint—The Smell of the Crowd. Her memoir, also titled Feeling Good, is scheduled to be published by Scholastic later this year.

She unveiled the show at the same venue in January 2017. At the time, she told Playbill, “Feeling Good is a peek into my life through song. Since our preview back in 2014 at Joe's Pub we have been reworking the material to include original music as well as new arrangements, starting with the title song, arranged by Michael Olatuja.”

LaChanze had her first starring role on Broadway playing the central role of Ti Moune in the original 1990 production of Once on This Island, earning her first Tony nomination. She won the 2006 Tony Award as Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her performance as Celie in the original production of the musical The Color Purple. She returned to Broadway in 2014 in the musical If/Then with Idina Menzel. Among her Off-Broadway appearances was the starring role in Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin.

In 2009, she was featured in PBS Great Performances of Handel's Messiah Rocks! with the Boston Pops orchestra, a performance for which she won an Emmy Award.

LaChanze also starred as Donna Summer in the LaJolla Playhouse world premiere of Summer. The musical makes its way to Broadway this year.
