Tony® Award winner Faith Prince dazzles audiences as she moves effortlessly between theatre, concerts, television and movies. Her latest concert, Have A Little Faith, is a “smorgasbord” of Faith Prince: past, present and future. From her memorable Broadway triumphs to tales and songs from her early Off-Broadway gems to her latest Broadway roles, the evening sparkles with doses of Faith’s quirky trademark humor as well as touching moments filled with pathos. As hostess of this musical evening, Faith Prince guarantees that the best is yet to come!

We have always been proud that Faith Prince appeared at Gretna Theatre in 1987 in The Threepenny Opera and Colorados. She has been dazzling Broadway audiences ever since, winning the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards just five years later for her performance as “Miss Adelaide” in Guys and Dolls.  In 2008, she was nominated for the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for A Catered Affair.  Other Broadway credits include The Little Mermaid, Bells Are Ringing (Tony, DD, OCC noms),  Nick & Nora (OCC Award),  Jerome Robbins’ Broadway (Tony, DD noms),  Little Me, The Dead, and  Noises Off.  She also starred in the world premiere of Terrence McNally’s Unusual Acts of Devotion.  Most recently, Faith starred in the national tour of the Broadway hit Billy Elliott.

Faith currently recurs on Lifetime’s hit series Drop Dead Diva as Brooke Elliott’s mother, “Elaine.”  She was a series regular on Showtime’s Huff starring as “Kelly Knippers,” the love interest of Oliver Platt, and recurred for five seasons on the hit show, Spin City.  Other television credits include A Gifted Man, Happy Endings, Ugly Betty, Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, Faith, House, Medium, Sweet Potato Queens, Monk, Now and Again, Welcome to New York and Law and Order. Film credits include Our Very Own, Picture Perfect, Dave and My Father the Hero.

Faith often sings with the Boston Pops, Utah Symphony, Cincinnati Pops, and Philly Pops, and recently starred in the Orlando Philharmonic’s concert version of Sweeney Todd.  Faith toured her show Moving On in Australia to rave reviews, and also toured in Over the Rainbow, a concert celebrating the centennial of Harold Arlen.  Faith’s new album, Total Faith, was recorded at the Royal Room in the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach and will be released soon. Her award winning album, A Leap of Faith, was recorded at Joe’s Pub and is available on DRG records.  She opens her act at NYC’s “54 Below” immediately after our engagement!
