Baby's Liz Callaway, Smokey Joe's Cafe's B.J. Crosby, Taboo's Liz McCartney and Falsettos' Barbara Walsh are set to lend their talents to tonight's evening at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Supervised by Phil Geoffrey Bond, the fundraiser will feature each of the women performing mini-concerts, with tunes from the Great American Songbook. A New Brain's Malcolm Gets will host the 8 PM performance. (The Wild Party's Julia Murney, who is on vocal rest, was previously announced for the concert.) A charitable organization, The Songbook Project, according to production notes, is "dedicated to promoting the art of live performance, with a special emphasis on both new and classic popular songs. The organization brings professional singers into schools and community centers to perform these American standards, followed by a question and answer session."

The Lucille Lortel Theatre is located in Manhattan at 121 Christopher Street. Tickets, priced $25, $45 and $75, are available by calling (212) 279 4200.
