Former Swing! star Ann Hampton Callaway returns to Feinstein's at the Regency on Oct. 8 with an all-new program entitled "Rodgers and Heart."
Callaway, who received a Tony nomination for her Broadway debut in Swing!, will offer an evening of tunes by the legendary composer of Oklahoma!, South Pacific and The Sound of Music. Cabaretgoers can expect to hear Callaway wrap her voice around such Richard Rodgers standards as "It Might As Well Be Spring," "With a Song in My Heart," "You'll Never Walk Alone," "Isn't It Romantic" and "My Romance." The award-winning singer-songwriter will also offer jazzy renditions of two Oklahoma! classics, "People Will Say We're in Love" and "I Cain't Say No."
During her Feinstein's engagement, Callaway — a recipient of ASCAP's Johnny Mercer Songwriting Award — will be accompanied by Ted Rosenthal (piano), Dennis Irwin (bass), Kenny Washington (drums), Andy Farber (reeds) and Brian Pareschi (trumpet). Callaway will play Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:30 PM with late shows on Friday and Saturdays at 11 PM. Cover charges range from $45 to $60, and there is a $30 minimum at each show.
Feinstein's at the Regency is located at 540 Park Avenue at 61st Street. For reservations, call (212) 339-4095 or visit www.ticketmaster.com.
