The Live At the Orinda concert series, which presents world-renowned musical artists at the beautiful art-deco Orinda Theatre, will kick off its 2019 season on Saturday, Jan. 19 with legendary actor/singer Rita Moreno in her first Bay Area concert in many years, followed by a matinee performance on Sunday, Jan. 20.
Moreno was recently signed by Steven Spielberg to co-star in and executive produce his remake of "West Side Story," which will begin filming this summer. Moreno currently stars in the Netflix reboot of "One Day At A Time." The Live At the Orinda opening weekend performances will also serve as a fundraiser for the historic Orinda movie theater to purchase permanent concert lighting for the venue to enhance the live music experience even further.
The season continues on Feb. 17 with three-time Tony nominated Broadway star Carolee Carmello ("Scandalous," "Mamma Mia!" "Finding Neverland") making her long-awaited Bay Area concert debut. On March 14, Broadway and TV star Telly Leung ("Aladdin," "Wicked," "Allegiance," "GLEE") comes directly from his starring role in Disney's "Aladdin" for his first Bay Area concert in many years. Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway ("At the Same Time") will reunite with Broadway star Liz Callaway ("Miss Saigon," "Cats") on April 4 for their award-winning show "Sibling Revelry." This also marks the first Bay Area duo concert by the Tony-nominated sisters in several years. Live At the Orinda will celebrate the finale of the first half of the season, before a summer break, on May 2, with Broadway and West End star Brent Barrett. This will also mark the Bay Area concert debut of the Olivier Award nominee and star of "Phantom Of the Opera," "Chicago" and "Kiss Me Kate."
All shows are presented in an intimate 180-seat theater inside the Orinda Movie Theatre complex. All seating is reserved, with most tickets from $55-$100 and no ticket service charges, nor food or drink minimums. Subscribers enjoy substantial ticket discounts and first choice of reserved seats for the season. VIP subscribers and donors are also invited to the private post-show receptions with each artist at Ciné Cuvée Wine Bar, adjacent to the theater.
