WIU Theatre grads to perform in online Broadway concert series

MACOMB — Two recent Western Illinois University alumni have been featured as winners on a national, online concert series, which showcases exceptional singers.

Logan Edris, a 2019 musical theatre graduate, of Milford, IL, and Sam Bonzi, a 2018 musical theatre graduate, of Rockford, IL, were chosen for highlight by Broadway personality Seth Rudetsky, who hosts a weekly online concert series for BroadwayWorld.com.

The series features performances by a variety of Broadway stars, with many of the concerts featuring an online “sing-off” where Rudetsky asks listeners to submit videos of themselves singing one of the featured stars’ most iconic songs. Rudetsky chooses a winner from hundreds of submissions each week, and plays their submission video live on the concert series.

Edris sang “You Ain’t Never Had a Friend Like Me,” performed by Tony Award-winner James Monroe Inglehart, who was the Genie in the original Broadway production of “Aladdin.” Bonzi performed “The Wizard and I,” by Tony Award-winner Stephanie J. Block of “Wicked.”
