Linda Eder made her Broadway debut in the musical Jekyll & Hyde, but according to Fanbridge.com, it might be a while before she returns to the Great White Way.
She revealed: "I have thought about it many times but it is hard (for me at least) to be a full time mom and do theater. I loved it when I was there, and I had so much fun with the cast, but when you play a lead it takes over your life and the 8 shows a week is really hard on the voice."
The mainstay of Eder's career is on the concert stage. Over the years, passionate fans across the country have packed concert venues from The Greek Theater in LA to New York's Radio City Music Hall, The Gershwin Theater, The Palace Theater and four sold out shows at Carnegie Hall. "As a kid my dream was always to play Carnegie Hall." Among her many career milestones, Linda's concerts have be televised on Bravo and PBS. She created and hosted a primetime television special TRAIL MIX for Animal Planet and has been profiled by the Bravo Network. She has appeared on televised concerts of The Songwriter's Hall of Fame, and Julie Andrew's " Leading Ladies of Broadway." She found strong supporters in television celebrity hosts and has appeared several times on Letterman, Regis & Kathy Lee and Rosie. Her powerful rendition of the track Gold was part of the opening ceremonies at the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Whether we will see a return from this theater great remains a mystery but Broadway fans can get there Linda Eder fix by listening to her latest album which was released last year. The album titled " Now" can be purchased at http://www.amazon.com/Now-Linda-Eder/dp/B004ISVH8Y/ref=ntt_mus_ep_dpi_3
