Broadway's Donna Vivino has released her inspired debut solo album on Ghostlight Records! Donna Vivinoâ€™s "Beautiful Dreamer" travels through personal history and musical eras. This recording features 13 songs that have resonated with Donna since childhood and embody her various interpretations of a â€œdreamâ€ â€“ making her solo debut a thematically cohesive song-cycle, one that unfailingly captivates with its bountiful charms.
Donna is accompanied by a world-class jazz quartet led by her father Jerry Vivino â€“ longtime member of Conan O'Brien's house band â€“ and pianist/arranger Mitch Forman. She rises to this occasion and offers astonishing, unique takes on songs by Rodgers and Hart, George and Ira Gershwin, AntÃ´nio Carlos Jobim, Randy Newman, and other legendary writers.
Donna began her Broadway career at the tender age of eight as Young Cosette in Les Miserables and went on to grace the Broadway stage in musicals such as Wicked and Hairspray. On television, sheâ€™s appeared on HBO, ABC, CBS and in the acclaimed web series Submissions Only.
