Tony Award winner Betty Buckley — who begins her Deep in the Heart run at Feinstein's at the Regency Oct. 22 — will sign copies of her newest recording, "The Doorway," on Nov. 1.
Buckley, last on Broadway in a Tony-nominated turn in Triumph of Love, will sign her newest solo album at the Tower Records store near Lincoln Center. Autograph seekers should arrive between 4 and 6 PM.
Betty 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.
Playbill On-Line recently reported that Buckley will take part in a workshop of a Broadway-bound musical, The Diner Stories. Featuring a score and book by Nancy Shayne, the December workshop of the musical will also star Jekyll and Hyde's Christiane Noll, Funny Girl's Leslie Kritzer, L.A. actress Mary Pat Gleason ("The Crucible") and "Sopranos" actor Dominic Chianese.
