We’re on the wrong side of the Atlantic to actually attend Elsie Fest this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about the increasingly impressive 2017 lineup.
Just added is young star of Moana, Auli’i Cravalho, who will perform on Sunday 8 October as a special guest. She joins Alan Cumming (Cabaret), Lea Michele (Glee, Spring Awakening), Ingrid Michaelson, Norm Lewis (Sweeney Todd), Jeremy Jordan (Smash, Newsies), Elvis Duran and more.
We’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Cravalho, as she will be starring in the upcoming NBC series Rise, from Jason Katims and Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller.
For those unfamiliar, Elsie Fest is a yearly Glastonbury-style event taking place in Central Park, New York. It was co-founded by Glee star Darren Criss, talent manager Ricky Rollins and Broadway producer Jujamcyn Theaters president Jordan Roth.
Previous guests include Tituss Burgess, Aaron Tveit, Leslie Odom Jr, Pasek and Paul, Lea Salonga, Cynthia Erivo and Megan Hilty.
