Buckley will perform through July 11 at 8 PM nightly. She will be accompanied by Chatterbox host, recent The Ritz star and Playbill.com columnist Seth Rudetsky on piano. The three evenings at the Irving Arts Center's Dupree Theater — directed by Richard Jay-Alexander — celebrate the 15th anniversary of Lyric Stage.
Buckley will likely bring Broadway By Request to Feinstein's at Loews Regency in Manhattan in the spring.
Betty Buckley offered acclaimed 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.

The actress was also seen on the final three seasons of the acclaimed HBO series "Oz" as well as in the Lincoln Center revue, Elegies: A Song Cycle.
Buckley's newest recordings, "Quintessence" and "Betty Buckley 1967," are both available on the Playbill Records/Sony BMG Masterworks Broadway label.
Buckley most recently scored raves for her work as Mrs. Jones in "The Happening."
