Andrea McArdle & Seth Rudetsky

Date: Jan 21, 2024
Time: 7:30 PM
Performing Arts Center - 337-291-5555



Andrea McArdle, who first captured the hearts of theatergoers everywhere when she originated the title role in the mega-musical Annie, will perform in place of Jessie Mueller with Seth Rudetsky for our show, which is at 7:30 pm on Sunday, January 21 at the Heymann Center in Lafayette.

Sunday night's show featuring Broadway's Jessie Mueller & Seth Rudetsky was to be an impromptu, off-the-cuff night of great entertainment. This show just got a little more spontaneous and we are confident that the amount of fun that our audience has will be amplified - no pun intended!

"Early this morning, we learned that Jessie Mueller was ill and could not perform," says PASA's executive director Jackie Lyle. "Thanks to Seth Rudetsky's quick work and fantastic show biz relationships, Andrea McArdle will perform in Jessie's place."

The audience can expect to hear "Maybe" and "Tomorrow," two songs from Annie that she originated, as well as a wide range of familiar Broadway songs from her incredible career that spans Les Miserables, Beauty And The Beast, and Cabaret!

Andrea McArdle "Tomorrow" from Annie & Tony Awards


Andrea McArdle first captured the hearts of theatergoers everywhere in 1977 when she originated the title role in the mega-musical Annie. As “Annie”, Andrea became the youngest performer ever to be nominated for a Tony Award as Best Lead Actress in a Musical. She also received the Theater World and Outer Critics' Circle Awards for her performance and went on to star when the show was produced on London’s West End. Also, on Broadway, Andrea starred in the Jerry Herman musical Jerry’s Girls alongside Carol Channing and Leslie Uggams, in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Starlight Express, State Fair; Les Miserables and as Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

She has performed in concert halls from Carnegie Hall to the Hong Kong Philharmonic. She has honed her craft by working with some of the great legends of the entertainment industry such as Ethel Merman, Liza Minnelli, Julie Andrews, Bob Hope, Liberace, Frank Sinatra, Steve Martin and Martin Short, to name a few, and was privileged to have appeared on television with Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin and Dinah Shore.

Coming full circle, Andrea was tapped by Academy Award nominated director Rob Marshall to appear as “The Star to Be” in the Disney/ABC television production of Annie starring Kathy Bates and Victor Garber. In addition, Andrea’s film and television credits include starring as Judy Garland in Rainbow, appearing in The Leading Ladies of Broadway and headlining her own PBS special Andrea McArdle on Broadway.
