    Known for her portrayal of Nina Rosario in Broadway’s Tony-winning In the Heights , Mandy Gonzalez brings her impressive talents to the intimate cabaret setting with Fearless. In addition to her role in Hamilton , Gonzalez’s previous credits include playing Elphaba in Wicked , Princess Amneris in Aida , and multiple roles in Lennon . She’s also made appearances on television ( Madam Secretary ) and the big screen (Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe ). On Fearless , her debut solo album, Gonzalez performs powerful songs by contemporary composers like Lin-Manuel Miranda and Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt. In the cabaret setting, whether she takes on a standard (like her bluesy, seductive remake of Que Será, Será ) or reinvents a Springsteen song (“Born to Run”), her sultry style turns new songs into instant classics, and makes classics sound new again. “Mandy Gonzalez is a skilled vocalist who grounds every moment in real heart and soul,” says TheaterMania . “Her ability to integrate story and song while maintaining the intimacy of the room is what makes this such a satisfying cabaret experience … ( Fearless ) is near-perfect.”
