When composer Frank Wildhorn puts on a concert of his songs, he has a lot of musicals to choose from. At one point, he had three shows running simultaneously on Broadway: Jekyll & Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Civil War.
But you can be sure that there will be at least a few songs from Wildhorn's latest shows, Wonderland and Bonnie & Clyde, at a concert for which he'll be playing piano with singers Laura Osnes, Rob Evan, Marlyn Sanchez and Jack Murphy.
Osnes and Evan have starred in Wildhorn musicals, she in Bonnie & Clyde, he in Jekyll & Hyde, and Murphy, a onetime rock 'n' roller, wrote the book and lyrics for Wonderland. Sanchez is a singer, actor and model from Miami.
Wildhorn's concert is at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Asolo Repertory Theatre, Sarasota. $45-$80. (941) 351-8000 or toll-free 1-800-361-8366; asolorep.org.
