She made her Hollywood Bowl debut singing with Julie Andrews and her opera debut with Placido Domingo in The Merry Widow. She performed in the Warner Brothers Animated feature film The King and I, and made appearances in Town Hall’s Broadway By the Year and in Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series.

Doug LaBrecque has thrilled theatre audiences as The Phantom and Raoul in the Harold Prince production of The Phantom of the Opera, as well as Ravenal in the Hal Prince revival of Showboat in Canada and Chicago. He was featured in Oscar Hammerstein’s 100th Birthday Celebration on Broadway at The Gershwin Theatre, and toured nationally with Les Miserables. Regionally, Doug has performed leading roles in Candide, A Chorus Line, and Man of LaMancha, among many others. One of the most prolific concert performers of his generation, Doug has been a soloist with some of the world’s finest symphony orchestras, including The National Symphony, The Korean National Symphony, The Israel Philharmonic, The Shanghai Radio Orchestra, The Vancouver and Calgary Symphonies, The Atlanta Symphony, The San Francisco Symphony, the Minnesota Orchestra, Detroit Symphony, and with Marvin Hamlisch at the Ravinia Festival with The Chicago Symphony and with The Pittsburgh Symphony. In a tribute to Richard Rodgers, Doug made his Carnegie Hall debut as a soloist with the New York Pops, the same season he debuted with The Boston Pops.

Dee Roscioli is best known for her portrayal of Elphaba in the smash Broadway hit Wicked on Broadway, in Chicago, and across the United States.
