Tony Award winner Betty Buckley will perform in concert at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, Dec. 6.

Part of the Kennedy Center's Jazz Series, Buckley will offer two concerts — at 7:30 and 9:30 PM — at the Terrace Theatre. The Broadway artist will feature songs from her eclectic repertoire, including many selections from her recent, critically hailed "Deep in the Heart" program at Feinstein's at the Regency.

Buckley offered heartfelt performances in Sunset Boulevard, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1776 and Promises, Promises. 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 and Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her work in the latter. Also a TV ("Eight Is Enough") and film (Tender Mercies) star, the actress-singer devotes much of her time to concert appearances around the world. Her solo CD, "Stars and the Moon: Betty Buckley Live at the Donmar Warehouse," was nominated for a Grammy Award, and her newest recording, "The Doorway," is her first for the Fynsworth Alley label.

Tickets for Buckley's Kennedy Center concerts are priced at $45 and are available by calling (800) 444-1324. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is located at 2700 F. Street, NW in Washington, D.C. Go to www.kennedy-center.org for more information.
