Last winter, stage star Betty Buckley brought her cabaret show to Manhattan's Cafe Carlyle. Well, the night spot must have liked her, because they've invited her back for a second season -- and not for the two weeks she did last year, but for over a month. Buckley will play the hall from Feb. 16 to March 17.
Buckley's latest CD, "Heart to Heart," will be released on March 28. The collection features "Just the Way You Look Tonight," "How Deep Is the Ocean," "Ruby," "I Am a Town" (by Mary Chapin Carpenter), "Fire and Rain" (by James Taylor), "If I Remember You Right" and "Violets." The last two songs are by Buckley herself.
Buckley will be accompanied by pianist Bill Mays, bassist Tony Marino and Jamey Haddad on percussion.
Buckley's musical credits include Cats, Carrie, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Sunset Boulevard and Triumph of Love. Her most recent New York stage appearance was in Nicky Silver's The Eros Trilogy at the Vineyard Theatre.
