‘Three Part Harmony’ Marks Return Of In-Person Performances, Broadway’s Beth Malone To Theatre Aspen

Broadway's Beth Malone performing at the Theatre Aspen tent during last summer's celebrity concert series.

 

Years before Beth Malone found fame on Broadway for her work in the musical “Fun Home,” and a Tony Award nomination along the way, she called the Roaring Fork Valley home. Malone, a Colorado native, came to the Aspen area in 1992 to perform at the now-closed Crystal Palace. 

She’s split her time between New York City and the Aspen area ever since, but she’s weathered the pandemic at her home in Snowmass Village, where she’s been writing a musical while most performing arts venues across the valley, and country, have remained shuttered. 

Malone performed in-person for Theatre Aspen’s outdoor cabaret series last summer, and on Sunday, she returns as a headliner for the theatre organization’s spring concert event called “Three Part Harmony: The Playlist of Our Lives” with fellow Broadway stars Elizabeth Stanley and Tamyra Gray. The event is in-person with limited attendance and social distancing measures in place. From her Snowmass home, she spoke with arts and culture reporter Kirsten Dobroth ahead of the event.
