Broadway Singer Jessica Phillips Performs

January 28, 2014

Wabash College’s Visiting Artists Series will present "Jessica Phillips: One Night Only" at 8 p.m., Friday, January 31, in Salter Concert Hall, Fine Arts Center.

Drawn from the past six years of her on- and off-Broadway work, the songs Ms. Phillips will share are about life and love, ranging from the deeply introspective to the lighthearted.

Jessica Phillips is best known for her role as Sheriff Marla in Alan Menken's Leap Of Faith, where she starred opposite Raul Esparza last season. Other original Broadway credits include Marion in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Next To Normal (OBC), Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Scarlet Pimpernel. Television viewers will recognize Jessica as the indefatigable A.D.A. Pippa Cox on NBC's Law & Order SVU. She has upcoming guest lead appearances on Unforgettable (CBS), and the pilots The Ordained (CBS) and Bronx Warrants (FX). She is featured as The Singer in the film La Vida Inesperada, premiering next year. Jessica was recently honored to perform as the guest vocalist for "Broadway Today and Tomorrow" in ASCAP's 100th Anniversary celebration at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and appears on concert stages across the country. In addition to her Broadway cast albums, Jessica can be found on iTunes singing with her country band "10th & Carlisle." Jessica is the daughter of Gary and Alice Phillips of Crawfordsville.
