"It'll be the first time that I've ever done one," Murphy told Playbill.com columnist Harry Haun. The show will debut in November, directly after Elaine Stritch's new act, which will play Sept. 13-Oct. 29 at the Upper East Side space. Stritch, too, will be making her cabaret debut.
Murphy's other theatre credits include Hello Again, Song of Singapore, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, The King and I and Passion. She won Tony Awards for the latter two.
