Broadway singer to stage cabaret Feb. 19

Broadway singer Mandy Gonzalez, who has starred in such stage hits as “Wicked” and “In the Heights,” understands devoted fans.

She met some fans of “Wicked” who had seen the show 25 to 30 times.

Gonzalez is a fan herself — of songs such as “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” the revamped 1980s tune that she sang in the Broadway musical “Dance of the Vampires.” She has said it was among her favorite tunes to croon while growing up.

The polished performer, who made her Broadway debut in 2001, will present that work and others such as “Breathe,” “Defying Gravity” and material from Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Aretha Franklin and others when she brings her one-woman show, “Love All Ways,” to the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic’s Cabaret at The Commons series at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 19.

Tickets are $15 to $50.
