Showing that they have more booking power and a greater taste for musical theater than their predecessors at the Rrazz Room, the folks at new cabaret venue Feinstein's at the Nikko have just announced a pretty notable lineup of performers for the coming months. Among them, big names from Broadway like Christine Ebersole, Faith Prince, and Tommy Tune.
Also coming will be onetime Annie star Andrea McArdle (more recently seen as Belle in Beauty and the Beast, on Broadway in 1999); acclaimed soul-pop singer Nicole Henry; and Broadway legend Donna McKechnie, who won the Tony for her portrayal of Cassie in the original cast of A Chorus Line, a part she largely wrote for herself via the therapy-style workshops with other dancers that gave birth to the show.
A previously announced set of shows by recent Kennedy Center honoree Barbara Cook will kick off on June 19.
All the performers are doing solo shows of signature songs, standards, and musical theater stuff, and Tommy Tune will be tap dancing in his, despite how tiny the stage is in this venue.
Look for tickets, dates, and details here. And note that ticket prices all include a $30 credit for beverages or food in the upstairs restaurant, Anzu.
And just for good measure, here's Christine Ebersole doing a number from her Tony-winning turn as Little Edie in Grey Gardens, ca. 2007.
