Faith Prince will bring her cabaret show, Leap of Faith, to Manhattan's Firebird Cafe, Dec. 7-22. It will be the second New York engagement for the piece, which proved a hit at Joe's Pub when it ran there in September. Since then, Prince has taken the show to the Stamford Center for the Arts' Rich Forum in Connecticut.
In the stage star's (Guys and Dolls, Little Me) first foray into cabaret, Prince sings numbers from the shows she's appeared in (a scat "Adelaide's Lament," "The Other Side of the Tracks") as well as songs from On a Clear Day..., Bells Are Ringing, Paper Moon and some obscure selections (the heartwarming "Sweet Kentucky Ham," the singularly bizarre "Animal in the Pit").
The Firebird Cafe is located at 365 W. 46th St. For information, call (212) 586-0244.
