Dracula's Errico to Record Legrand Tunes on New Solo CD

News   Dracula's Errico to Record Legrand Tunes on New Solo CD Melissa Errico, on Broadway earlier this season in Frank Wildhorn's Dracula, will record a new solo recording this summer.

Her second solo disc — following the critically acclaimed "Blue Like That" — will feature songs by Michel Legrand, the composer of Broadway's Amour, which co-starred Errico and Malcolm Gets. Errico's official website says the singing actress will record the disc in Brussels this July. Phil Ramone will produce the new CD.

Melissa Errico began her professional career portraying Cosette in Les Misérables, and she followed with leading roles in Anna Karenina, My Fair Lady, High Society, Amour, Dracula and the City Center Encores! productions of Call Me Madam and One Touch of Venus. She appeared in a production of Threepenny Opera at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, and Errico's recent Off-Broadway credits include Finian's Rainbow and Aunt Dan and Lemon. She will also star in the Hollywood Bowl presentation of Camelot Aug. 14.

On her debut solo recording, "Blue Like That," Errico offered a selection of modern American standards. Produced by Arif Mardin, that CD was released on the Manhattan Records label.

Michel Legrand is the recipient of three Academy Awards and five Grammy Awards. His songs include “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?,” “The Windmills of Your Mind,” “How Do You Keep the Music Playing?” and “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” He also wrote the score for Broadway's Amour.
