Doylestown native, “Bat Out of Hell” star streams benefit concert


Andrew Polec, Doylestown native and star of the international show of “Bat Out of Hell,” reprises his solo concert debut, “Legacy of Love,” on the streaming platform Stellar, beginning July 30.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Actors Fund and the nonprofit Bucks County Playhouse.

Backed by The Michael Bond Quartet, Polec debuted the concert at Bucks County Playhouse in June as part of its Broadway Spotlight Concert Series.

The streaming event will feature all the music from the live event and include a variety of genres, including traditional musical theater (“Dear World,” “The Fantasticks,” “Camelot,” “Rent,” “Floyd Collins”), film (“The Greatest Showman”) and rock n’ roll (Queen, Bon Jovi, Three Dog Night, Kings of Leon ) with a homage to the recently deceased Rock Legend Jim Steinman.
“Throughout the pandemic, Bucks County Playhouse has been there as a strong support beam for the community and for me, personally, by thinking outside the box and allowing the human-to-human aspect of art to stay alive in a safe way. Being a native of this area, I’m proud to call this theater home and the true embodiment of the tenacity of the arts,” Polec said.
Polec is about to star in “Hair” at the Old Globe Theater in San Diego in the role of Berger Aug. 10 to Sept. 26.
