Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga stars at Globe Gala


Broadway veteran Lea Salonga, known for her roles in “Miss Saigon” and “Les Misérables,” will perform at the annual Old Globe Gala benefit on Saturday, July 28, in Balboa Park.

In the fall, Slonga will star in “Allegiance – A New American Musical,” at The Globe.

The event is a fundraiser for the theater’s education and artistic programs. Board members Pamela Cesak, Jo Ann Kilty and Vicki Zeiger are co-chairing the gala, which begins with a reception and silent auction of some 250 items in the park’s Alcazar Garden.

The reception will be followed by Salonga’s performance on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage. Afterward, dinner (catered by Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina) and dancing to the music of Impulse will start on the Globe’s Copley Plaza.

Tickets, which include valet parking, are $750 and $1,000 (VIP seating). Tables are also available starting at $7,500.
