Faith Prince will bring her cabaret show, Leap of Faith, back to Joe's Pub Jan. 7 & 8, and this time the much-acclaimed show will be recorded. Both evenings' performances will be taped, and the resultant CD will be released on DRG Records. A release date is yet to be announced.
Prince first tested her act at Joe's Pub last July. She then returned in September, opening officially to positive reviews. Prince is currently performed her show, titled "Leap of Faith," at Manhattan's Firebird Cafe, Dec. 7-22.
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. For information on the Joe's Pub dates, call (212) 239-6200.
