Tony Award winner Faith Prince dazzles audiences as she moves effortlessly between theatre, live performance, television and movies. Her most recent CD, Total Faith, was recorded live in The Colony Hotel’s Royal Room. Her unforgettable and often hilarious adventures are brought to life through the songs of some of America's greatest composers, including Harold Arlen, Menken & Ashman, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, Rodgers & Hart, and Jerry Herman. Faith Prince has been astounding Broadway audiences since winning the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her performance as “Ms. Adelaide” in Guys and Dolls. Other Broadway credits include The Little Mermaid, Bells Are Ringing, Nick & Nora, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, Little Me, The Dead, and Noises Off. Most recently, Faith replaced Jane Lunch as Miss Hannigan in the Broadway revival of Annie and she headlined the national tour of the Broadway hit Billy Elliot The Musical. On TV, she has co-starred in such hit series as Drop Dead Diva, Spin City and Huff, and has appeared in Law and Order, Ugly Betty, Monk, House, Grey’s Anatomy and Happy Endings.
Reviews of Faith Prince:
+ The Philadelphia Inquirer: "Faith Prince has a gift for the comic story-song requiring expressive and clear presentation... Her vocal gymnastics are an awesome display of talent and skill. Prince also falls naturally into a bold but easy belt-'em style that gives satisfying presence... The truth is that Faith Prince can do justice to any style of Broadway musical song."
+ Las Vegas Review Journal: "Faith Prince's fans came in the hope of seeing magic by a queen of musical theater, and Prince, the Tony-award winner, delivered. Her show at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas embodied the energy and sophisticated humor of New York City… When Prince sang, she was always in command of the audience and material… Even members of the audience who had never been to Broadway could sit back and be entertained by something wonderful.”
+ The New York Times: "Ms. Prince has a one-in-a-million novelty voice made for bringing Broadway's big, loud kewpie doll characters into full, funny bloom.”
+: "Prince, best known for her stage work in Tony Award-winning role in the revival of Guys and Dolls and Bells Are Ringing showcased the best of her multi-faceted range of talent, from her impeccable comedic timing to a voice that extends far beyond the walls of any theater setting. Hers is a voice that can belt with the best of them and few actors today have a voice that opens up with the range and depth of Prince... (She) is all about the total performance, and her interpretation of lyrics coupled with her innate acting abilities made the show an intimate and consummate glimpse into the life of this actor... When Faith Prince performs, she makes it all look and sound so easy."
