Kristen Hertzenberg’s


She dazzled audiences as Christine in the Las Vegas production of The Phantom of the Opera. She wowed audiences across Europe in the 1960s Love Rock Musical Hair. She brought the house down in the hit Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet on the Las Vegas Strip. Now, vocalist Kristen Hertzenberg and the accomplished and incomparable pianist Philip Fortenberry unveil a freshly arranged collection of their favorite songs from the Great White Way.

From their delightful renditions of their favorite Rodgers and Hammerstein tunes to her hilarious take on the audition process in New York City to the unforgettable “Think of Me” from Phantom, Hertzenberg and Fortenberry take the audience on an eclectic, heartfelt tour of the Broadway songbook. Hertzenberg's vocal versatility sets her apart and critics have taken notice, calling her delivery “perfect,” her voice “gorgeous,” “lilting and limitless.” The Las Vegas Weekly says, “mighty plunges into multiple genres are what audiences have come to expect from Hertzenberg–a singer with extraordinary vocal depth.” 

This Texas-born singer grew up two-stepping to country music and went on to earn a master’s degree in Opera Performance at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After touring Europe as a cast member in an acclaimed production of Hair, Hertzenberg moved to Las Vegas in 2006 for Phantom and delighted in playing the co-lead for five years. She also spent a year and a half in the hit Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet on the Las Vegas Strip and continues to sing with her own band and to appear with orchestras across the country.

Whether you’ve had the pleasure of hearing her in her many appearances around the world or whether it marks your first time taking in this wildly gifted singer live onstage, Hertzenberg’s show is a love letter addressed to anyone who enjoys the music of Broadways’ greatest composers rendered with grace, precision and affection.


"Kristen Hertzenberg's singing voice is a gift. The former “Phantom of the Opera” co-lead can tear up a blues number, navigate the precipitous twists and turns of a operatic piece, or perform a humble campfire folk song … and she can do all these things one after the other, without a break. That’s a gift, real and true.”


“Whether she’s slowing up-tempo pop songs into soft, dreamy melodies, belting out love songs, owning country or dipping into the Broadway songbook, Kristen Hertzenberg reaches out to her audience with so much personality, skill, emotion and vocal power that it’s no surprise Desert Companion named her Best Torch Singer this year."

Las Vegas Weekly

“Onstage, her voice is the centerpiece, a versatile and dynamic instrument that goes from gritty blues to angelic peal at the drop of a Julie London record sleeve.”

Desert Companion

“Just as musical theatre (and Las Vegas) was a far cry from the Austrian American Mozart Academy in Salzburg where Hertzenberg studied as an undergrad, her impeccable renditions of rapper Young MC’s “Bust a Move” and “Fastest Rhyme” underscore her versatility. These mighty plunges into multiple genres are what audiences have come to expect from Hertzenberg–a singer with extraordinary vocal depth...”

Las Vegas Weekly

“Hertzenberg is a graceful performer whose voice is at once lilting and limitless.”

Kristen Hertzenberg is best known for her role as "Christine" in the Las Vegas production of Phantom of the Opera and was lauded for her clear soprano voice with "the strength to keep the high notes rooted in emotion." She has since performed a series of sold-out solo concerts with her band and recently starred as "Dyanne" in the hit Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet on the Las Vegas strip. She continues to perform in concerts across the country. In 2014, Desert Companion magazine named her Best Torch Singer and many other Las Vegas publications have also taken notice, hailing her as “graceful,” “versatile and dynamic,”  and “gorgeously voiced.”

Philip Fortenberry, pianist, has played for ten Broadway shows and has performed in concerts from Lincoln Center to Carnegie Hall, from the Kennedy Center to the White House.

Philip is the music coordinator for the Broadway Series at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas and is also the organist for Community Lutheran Church.
