The concert features songs by celebrated composers Stephen Sondheim, Burt Bacharach and Stephen Schwartz, among others. "Countering romantic and ethereal moments with Michel Legrand and Jule Styne ballads," state press notes, "she lets her hair down more than once, including falling to the floor to flirt with a fan and dancing through the crowd."
The set mixes 1970's rock numbers with favorite songs from well-known film soundtracks like "The Thomas Crown Affair" and "The Summer of '42." During the show, Errico recalls past Broadway productions like My Fair Lady and Dracula and sings musical theatre classics like "Meadowlark," "Getting Married Today" and "What Did I Have That I Don't Have?"
In an earlier statement for the solo CD recording, "Melissa Errico: What About Today? - Live at 54 BELOW," which was released Oct. 16 and is available on iTunes, Errico commented, "This was the most dynamic set list I have ever sung thanks to my wonderful director and the band of a lifetime. I juggled some big songs in some high heels that week!"
"It was a musical party," she continued. "I hope people will enjoy."
