The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce that Aladdin star Telly Leung will perform his new concert, “Sing Happy,” on Monday, November 11 at 7pm.

Currently starring as the title role in Disney's Aladdin on Broadway, Telly Leung (Allegiance, Godspell, Rent, “Glee”) returns to the Birdland stage with some of Broadway's best musicians to premiere his brand new solo show, “Sing Happy.” This eclectic evening of music will follow the musical journey that has led him from Brooklyn to Broadway, taking an intimate and revealing look at the ups and downs of what it takes to be a professional singer - from joyful Broadway openings to a career-threatening event that almost ended it all. Music direction by Gary Adler (Alterboyz). Directed by Alan Muraoka (“Sesame Street,” Pacific Overtures, Miss Saigon).

Joining Mr. Leung onstage will be Mary Ann McSweeney on bass, Michael Croiter on drums, Brian Koonin on guitar, and J.J. Johnson on violin/viola/flute.

Telly Leung is a New York City native currently starring in Disney's Aladdin on Broadway as the title role. His Broadway and national touring credits include In Transit, Allegiance (with George Takei & Lea Salonga), Godspell, RENT (final Broadway company), Wicked (Boq, original Chicago company), Pacific Overtures, Flower Drum Song. In 2010, he starred as Angel in RENT at the Hollywood Bowl opposite Wayne Brady, directed by Neil Patrick Harris. Television audiences will remember him as Wes the Warbler on “Glee,” as well as his guest star appearances on "Instinct,” “Odd Mom Out,” “Deadbeat,” and “Law and Order: Criminal Intent.” Telly is featured on many original Broadway cast recordings and he has released two solo albums - I’ll Cover You (2012) and Songs for You (2016) on The Yellow Sound Label.
