AVENTURA, Fla. (December 23, 2022) – Presented by the City of Aventura, the 2023 Aventura Broadway Concert Series begins on a high note with Rachel Bay JonesSunday, January 15 at 7 p.m.
With an intimate, soaring voice that creates an incredibly dynamic evening, Jones is best known for originating the role of “Heidi Hansen” in the original Broadway cast of Dear Evan Hansen for which she received Tony, Emmy, Grammy and Lucille Lortel Awards as well as a Drama League Nomination.
Additional Broadway appearances include Pippin, Hair and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Jones also wowed New York audiences in the critically acclaimed productions of Michael John LaChiusa’s First Daughter Suite and Hello Again and received rave reviews for her performance as “Diana” in The Kennedy Center’s revival production of Next to Normal.
In a review of Jones’ concert last June at New York’s famous cabaret Feinstein’s 54 Below, Broadway World reported, “The show that Rachel is presenting is one of the loveliest, most emotionally satisfying to come along this season, and possibly any other season.”
