Caught Linda's show at the Orange County Performing Arts Center February 17, 2007 and am happy to report she sounds better than
ever! And she looked even better -- Despite the fact that her trip from JFK to California due to fallout from the Jet Blue fiasco...
An awkward moment arose when Pacific Symphony conductor, Richard Kaufman indvertantly collected quarters meant for Linda's animal shelter fund drive... and distributed them to the audience before he could be stopped! Backstage, Mr. Kaufman promised to replace the funds, and I'm sure he will!
Also, I am happy to report Linda mentioned, she is working on a new album-- due out later this year!
Many thanks to Linda Eder, Richard Kaufman, Connie Arrigo, and the OCPAC staff for a great evening...and some lovely backstage moments!

Eder is backed by the London Symphony Orchestra on most of the tracks.

About her upcoming recording, singer-actress Eder said in a statement, "Judy [Garland] was my first big musical influence. I always felt a connection to her. She was all about the goose bump factor. . . I've been through a lot in the last few years, which has added new layers to my life. No one escapes the lows, and Judy's were extreme, but you felt you knew her."

"By Myself"
"Almost Like Being in Love"/"This Can't Be Love"
"Me and My Shadow"
"I'd Like to Hate Myself in the Morning"

"The Rainbow's End"
"The Boy Next Door"/"You Made Me Love You"
"Do It Again"
"Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody"
"Over the Rainbow"

Linda Eder made her Broadway debut as Lucy in Jekyll & Hyde, garnering a Theatre World Award as well as Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations for her work.

Frank has another son, Justin, from a previous relationship. The couple has, sadly, since divorced.

Linda appeared at the Orange County Performing Arts Center's Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa, CA December 11, 1999 as part of a Cabaret series including: Susan Egan, Leslie Uggams, Diana Krall and Nell Carter. Ms. Eder also performed a private (SOLD OUT)benefit concert for the Center on December 10, at which one million dollars was raised toward the building of a new theatre at OCPAC. In addition, Linda performed aFREE 20-minute mini-concert of Holiday music at BORDERS BOOKS & MUSIC in Costa Mesa, CA on Sunday, Dec. 12 @ 4 PM. After the show, Linda signed her CD for fans.

Linda In Concert

Sorry, if you missed this one. Even though Linda was suffering from the flu, her voice retained all of it's amazing qualities -- thanks apparently to a couple of cortizone shots. She breezed through numbers from her latest release, It's No Secret Anymore... as well as sturring renditions of The Christmas Song, O Holy Night, Over The Rainbow, I Don't Know How To Love Him... and, of course, Someone Like You. A true highlight of the evening was the duet between Linda, and special surprise guest Douglas Sills of The Scarlet Pimpernel. It was announced that Mr. Sills will be reprising his Broadway role in selected cities (including Los Angeles) during the Pimpernel's upcoming national tour.


There were a lot of fans waiting for Linda at the stage door, but thanks to my good friend, Connie, (who knew I had met Linda and Frank previously) at the Performing Arts Center, I was able to go downstairs near the dressing area (via freight elevator). To my surprise, there were even more people down there, which meant I'd be waiting a while. I didn't care. It was worth it! Especially, when I caught the Douglas Sills' (The Scarlet Pimpernel) attention. He immediately remembered meeting me outside the Minskoff Theater (April 1999). He just had trouble figuring out exactly where I lived. I explained that we had only been visiting back in New York, and that Mom and I actually live right there in Orange County! It was then that he confirmed that he would indeed be starring in The Scarlet Pimpernel at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. April 25 - June 18, 2000. Doug said he would see me there, and then went on to visit with other guests.

At that point, Mom spotted Rachel York ( Marguerite). Doug looked over and asked "Do you remember John from outside our theatre?" She said she did, although we had only met briefly months earlier. I told her I enjoyed her recordings of Storybook and I'll Forget You on the recently-released Encore CD. She had to run, but graciously thanked me as "The Pimpernel" segment of the evening came to a close.

After a few minutes, Frank Wildhorn (Linda's husband; as well as composer of Jekyll & Hyde, Scarlet Pimpernel, The Civil War, and all of his wife's original material) popped his head out of Linda's dressing room door. He spotted me and came over to say hello. He autographed my Civil War hat, as I told him I thought the show was too good for Broadway; but people would love it on tour. Frank just smiled. I also told him that I thought Why Do People Fall In Love? on Linda's latest CD, It's No Secret Anymore was the most beautiful song he has written for her so far. He kindly thanked me and said Linda would be out soon.

I was having a great time just hanging out and soaking up the atmosphere, I even found out that country singer would be starring in The Civil War in selected cities on tour. That should be great! See it if you can. I guess Mr. Sills had places to go, and was getting inpatient. So, he went in to see what was keeping Linda.

The next thing I knew, Linda was out to greet me. I told her I could not believe how well she sang, considering she was ill. She said she didn't feel that badly, it was mostly her voice and throat. I gave her a gift I had brought for her baby, Jake. She asked if I would like to see him, and then had someone bring him out. He is adorable! And very lively at late hours. He also has a lot more hair than his father! (Sorry, Frank!) Jake loved the stuffed toy we brought. It was getting late, and Linda still had many fans to meet at the stage door. She said she wished I could see her at Carnegie Hall February 2, 2000. But that is not possible. So, we wished each other Happy Holidays and said good-bye. It was an incredible evening!


Linda Eder has the voice of an Angel, which is probably why I can't stop listening.

She is a Star Search Grand Champion

...and was one of three leads in the pre-Broadway touring company and original Broadway Cast of Jekyll and Hyde, co-written by her husband, Frank Wildhorn.

She can be heard on recordings of Jekyll & Hyde, as well as studio recordings of Wildhorn's other INCREDIBLE BROADWAY musicals, (pages on this website) The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Civil War: (The Nashville Sessions [1 CD] & The Complete Work [2 CDs] ), both scheduled to tour the United States in 2000.

She has also recorded several solo albums entitled, Linda Eder (RCA/Victor), ...And so much more, and Storybook (Angel), It's Time! and It's No Secret Anymore, GOLD, as well as Broadway, My  Way (Atlantic) (My personal fave!)

...and starred in her own PBS concert special in March 1999. 

Eder has also....

released an album of Holiday music, Christmas Stays The Same, in late 2000... A companion DVD followed! 

...And another Wildhorn musical, "Camille Claudel" is also on the drawing board for this busy performer.

Linda has performed at the prestigious Belmont Stakes horse race each for five years (1997-2001)


And has appeaeared on TV shows such as:

The Rosie O'Donnell Show
Live With Regis & Kathie Lee
Ru Paul
...AND MORE!!!
