On Mondays Aug. 13, 20 and 27 and Sept. 10 singer Lorinda Lisitza will take centerstage at the Off-Broadway venue. Brad Oscar, best known for the many roles he played in various productions of The Producers, will direct. Show time is 8 PM. The concerts will also feature the talents of Liz Lark Brown and Tanya Holt. Musicians include Matt Hinkley, Matt Wigton and Joe Iconis.

The show, which features music by Joe Iconis and lyrics by Robert Maddock, is described as such: "A concert about hick towns and hussies and all the good and bad things that can happen to a lady with a hankering for fame and murder. And root beer floats! The audience is catapulted into the world of this ambitious girl's journey through the highs and lows of love, heartbreak, criminal digressions, dreams, failures and the great 'triumph' of survival." Song titles include "That's What You Get for Falling in Love with Tom Hanks" and "Triumphant Baby."

The Theatre at St. Peter's is located at 54th Street, east of Lexington Avenue. Tickets, priced $20, are available by calling (212) 935-5820 or by visiting www.yorktheatre.org.
