KLEA BLACKHURST

Klea Blackhurst is an actress, singer and comedienne and has performed professionally for 35 years. She is known for an award-winning tribute to Ethel Merman: Everything The Traffic Will Allow which opened in 2001 and led to a dual career as a musical theatre historian and performer. Her most recent project, One of the Girls, which she wrote/conceived, celebrates the wit and wisdom of Hello, Dolly! composer, Jerry Herman. It debuted at Birdland Jazz in August 2019.

She is a distinguished Alumna of the University of Utah. Klea performs with symphony orchestras across the country and often teaches masterclasses for the ASCAP Foundation — dedicated to nurturing the music talent of tomorrow by preserving its legacy to the past.

Some of her most exciting opportunities have been as an actress in the development of new works: she played the title role in Hazel at Drury Lane in Chicago (based on the iconic tv show starring Shirley Booth); Miss Lemon in The Nutty Professor, directed by Jerry Lewis, with a score by Marvin Hamlisch and Rupert Holmes; Klea starred in Goodspeed Opera’s Hello, Dolly! and has done two critically acclaimed productions of Gypsy.

She is NYC-based and has done several Off-Broadway and regional, television and radio productions. Klea has been a member of the actors’ union, Actors’ Equity, since1985 and joined SAG/AFTRA in 2009.
