Wharton Center presents virtual concert with Broadway star Carrie Manolakos

Join Broadway star, actress, writer and recording artist Carrie Manolakos at 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13, for a virtual unplugged concert featuring many of her original songs and some of her well-known favorites right from her living room piano. Manolakos is best known for her roles on stage, including Sophie Sheridan in Broadway’s "Mamma Mia!" and Elphaba in the National Tour of "Wicked." Her voice can be heard in the films "The Greatest Showman" and "Incredibles 2." Manolakos’ hauntingly beautiful interpretation of Radiohead’s Creep became a YouTube phenomenon, with nearly 4 million views and counting.
Tickets to the virtual concert are on sale now and will be processed through Wharton Center’s live-stream partner, To purchase tickets, visit or the Wharton Center website at
“I have loved my time with the Wharton community over the years,” said Manolakos. “I am so excited to sing and play for you on November 13th and I look forward to when I can come back to East Lansing to play in person.”
In 2019, Manolakos released her solo, full-length record "The 44th Chord," a magical tour-de-force that highlights not only her strength of interpreting others’ works but her unique capabilities as a songwriter and, as always, her unparalleled vocal prowess. She most recently performed at Carnegie Hall in February 2020 to a sold-out crowd. Manolakos sang songs of her heroes and her own original material, receiving a standing ovation for her performance.
