Tony Award winner Betty Buckley, seen on screen earlier this year in M. Night Shyamalan’s box-office hit film Split, has announced a series of fall concert dates as well as a five-day Song Interpretation & Monologue Intensive Workshop at New York’s T. Schreiber Studio in October.
The Theatre Hall of Fame honoree, who recently released her latest solo album, the critically acclaimed Story Songs, will perform songs from that new recording October 7 at The Tilles Center on Long Island (tickets are available here). Broadway favorite Buckley will then introduce Story Songs #2—a new collection of music—October 12-15 at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater in New York (tickets are available here).
Other upcoming concert dates include October 21 at the Broken Arrow PAC in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma (tickets are available here) and November 4 at The Wall Street Theater in Norwalk, Connecticut (tickets are available here).
The five-day Song Interpretation & Monologue Intensive Workshop will be offered October 2-6. Buckley, according to press notes, will share "her expertise and guide her students through a methodology that facilitates audience connection through songs and monologues."
The classes, which are held from 6:30 PM to 10:30 PM, also welcome observers who participate in all aspects of the class except the individual coaching by Buckley. An accompanist will be provided. For further details and to apply to the workshop, prospective participants should contact T. Schreiber Studio at (212) 741-0209 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

She won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in the Broadway production of Cats, and she starred on the London stage in Promises, Promises, Dear World, and Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her work in the latter.
