Dvorsky will be joining the cast of Signature's production of the new musical Ace, which opens at Signature on Aug. 26.

Gartshore joins Eleasha Gamble, Jobari Parker-Namdar, and Kimberly Sherbach in performing "a collection of terrific tunes from some of history's forgotten mid-century musicals."

With music director Gabriel Mangiante on the piano, the performance will include the music of Cole Porter, Jule Styne, Kurt Weill, Rodgers and Hart, Harburg and Arlen, and more.

"Even though shows like High Button Shoes, Cabin in the Sky, Jamaica, Mexican Hayride, One Touch of Venus and St. Louis Woman have long since disappeared from the stage, they render up some amazing musical treasures for this memorable cabaret directed by Michael Baron," according to Signature.

Lost Songs performances are Sept. 3-4 at 8:30 PM, with two shows a day on Sept. 5-6, at 7:30 PM nd 9:30 PM. The setting is Signature's 110-seat ARK Theatre, "transformed into a dramatic nightclub complete with intimate table seating."

Tickets for all shows are $30 and are available by calling Ticketmaster at (703) 573-7328, visiting www.signature-theatre.org, or at the Signature Theatre Box Office.
