After a successful run of Sondheim…One Song at a Time in January, Stritch will return for a series of 8:45 PM performances on Monday evenings March 22, 29 and April 5, and continue Tuesdays through Saturdays beginning April 20 through May 1.

Stritch previously extended her January engagement for one performance, which coincided with her 85th birthday.

"There has never been a greater demand at The Café Carlyle than for Ms. Stritch's latest show," said Carlyle managing director Erich Steinbock. "We have turned dozens of patrons away each night, and felt that it would be a shame not to make this extraordinary 'happening' available to as many fans as possible."

Rob Bowman is the musical director for the Stritch concerts, which feature orchestrations by Tony, Oscar, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Jonathan Tunick. Stritch is backed by Bowman on piano, Lou Bruno on bass, Dave Gale on trumpet, Jack Gale on trombone, Les Scott on reeds and Paul Pizzuti on drums.

Elaine Stritch received Tony and Emmy Awards for Elaine Stritch at Liberty, which traces a stellar career, which includes roles in composer-lyricist Sondheim's Company plus The Little Foxes, Bus Stop, A Delicate Balance, Sail Away and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

There is a $125 music charge for all performances.

The Café Carlyle is located within The Carlyle Hotel (35 East 76th Street at Madison Avenue). For reservations call (212) 744-1600. For more information visit TheCarlyle.
