Join us for our biggest event of the year featuring one of Broadway’s biggest stars! Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara will perform this spring at the newly renovated Round House Theatre for the annual Broadway in Bethesda Gala!
 
A star on the stage and screen, Kelli’s portrayal of Anna in the critically acclaimed revival of The King and I garnered her the 2015 Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, along with Grammy, Drama League, and Outer Critics nominations. Hailed as “Broadway musical’s undisputed queen” (The Times), she has also received Grammy and Emmy Award nominations, and was awarded the prestigious Drama League’s Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre Award in 2019.
 
We hope you will join us for an unforgettable evening with this extraordinary star! All proceeds from the event support Round House Theatre’s artistic and education programs.
