Alicia Hall Moran, mezzo-soprano, brings diverse influences and passions together in a rich artistic brew Currently in the Ensemble of the 10-time Tony-nominated Gershwins’ Porgy & Bess, she’s performed the role of Bess both in Cambridge, MA and now on Broadway as an Understudy to 5-time Tony winner Audra McDonald. Ms. Moran consistently finds outlets for her critically-acclaimed “cabaret” act Alicia Hall Moran + the motown project as seen at The Highline Ballroom, Le Poisson Rouge, Regattabar, The Kitchen, The Whitney Biennial, and other venues. Co-authoring and improvising vocal music for Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company’s award-winning Chapel/Chapter remains a career highlight. Ms. Moran’s performances transcend expectation. Her singing and theatrical sensibilities lead purely into a sensual, musical world where the lyricism of Marvin Gaye and the high drama of Puccini collide.
