Join us for a cavalcade of tuneful, stirring and significant, but unexplainably forgotten musical numbers that spanned eight decades of Broadway musicals. Songs written by Rogers & Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Jule Styne, Lerner & Loewe, the Gershwins, Kurt Weill, Noel Coward and many others.
The evening will be interspersed with anecdotes, secrets, gossip, and factual information that will make the evening a treat for disciples as well as non-believers.
Starring SHELLY BURCH, BRIAN CHARLES ROONEY and the DAVID SHENTON TRIO.
Created and narrated by Annie creator, lyricist, and director Martin Charnin.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Shelly Burch, who was born in Tucson, Arizona, and grew up in Washington D.C., came to New York City, after attending Carnegie-Mellon, and immediately landed a role on Broadway in the 1978 revival of Stop The World, I Want To Get Off with Sammy Davis Jr. She then went on to play Star-to-Be, and Lily in Annie for 804 performances on Broadway. In 1981 she left Annie to create the role of Claudia in Tommy Tune's Nine, where she introduced the Maury Yeston classic "Unusual Way," (for which she received a Drama Desk nomination). Frank Rich, then the theatre critic for The New York Times, called her "a Modigliani Goddess with a strong voice and an almost other worldly presence." Shelly was the devilish Delila on the ABCtv soap opera "One Life To Live" for 8 years, and regularly performs her one-woman entertainment at New York City's famous bistro, The Metropolitan Room. Tickets are now on sale for her next engagements, on December 1st and December 12, 2016.
