Performances are scheduled for April 28-30 at 9 PM. The singing actress is accompanied by musical director Shelly Markham.

Travels of the Heart is described as a "nostalgic look at twenty-five years of a singer's life on the road. A delightful, sentimental journey with songs about [Marcovicci's] travels."

"I wanted to sing about what it really means to be on the road as an artist for so many years," Marcovicci said in a statement, "the excitement of seeing new places like London, Paris and Spain, revisiting my most beloved haunts like Chicago, San Francisco, and New York, and touching on some of the mixed blessings too — funny stories of jobs that aren't quite what my fabulous musical director, Shelly Markham, and I had hoped for and ... sometimes loneliness."

Songs include "It Never Was You," "A Foggy Day in London Town," "Sail Away," "Sunday in New York," "How Are Things in Glocca Morra?" and "These Foolish Things."

Andrea Marcovicci starred on Broadway in the short-lived musical Ambassador and in Frank D. Gilroy's Any Given Day. Her screen credits include roles in "The Front," "Someone to Love," "Jack the Bear," "Who Is Henry Jaglom?," "The Water Engine" and "Trapper John, M.D." It has been the cabaret stage, however, where she has received the most acclaim. The singer-actress has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and in concert halls throughout the world. Her solo albums are numerous and include "Marcovicci Loves Movies," "What Is Love?," "Just Kern," "December Songs," "New Words," "Live from London" and "Some Other Time."

The Gardenia is located in West Hollywood at 7066 Santa Monica Blvd. For reservations call (323) 467-7444.
