Broadway and television star Megan Hilty will make her debut Australian tour this June, performing in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide.

 

Accompanied by her four-piece band, including her musical director and pianist Matt Cusson and husband Brian Gallagher on guitar, Megan will take audiences on a trip through the American Songbook.

 

Best known for her portrayal of seasoned triple-threat Ivy Lynn in the musical drama SMASH, Hilty is currently starring, on Broadway, in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of the hit comedy, Noises Off.

 

Megan released her debut solo album in 2013, It Happens All The Time, which included fresh interpretations of compositions by contemporary songwriters and producers. 

 

A native of Seattle, Hilty moved to New York City after graduating from the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University, and quickly made her Broadway debut as Glinda in Wicked.

 

Having also starred as Lorelei Lee, the diamond-loving blonde made famous by Carol Channing, in the Encores! production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, she also received high praise for her portrayal of Doralee Rhodes in Broadway’s 9 to 5: The Musical.

 

Her career has seen her honoured with nominations for Lead Actress in a Musical at the Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Drama League Awards and L.A. Stage Alliance Ovation Awards.

 

Megan Hilty’s sensational voice and star power are the perfect vehicle for a trip through the American Songbook. Don’t miss seeing this burgeoning blonde bombshell on her first ever Australian Tour.

 

Her exquisite instrument (voice) found a dazzling spectrum of colour and contour, moving the audience to rapture and tears.

This is a woman who knows how to get her way and is too determined and impatient to be coy about it.
