Graae will be backed by musical director Alex Rybeck on piano for the 7 PM concert. Cabaretgoers can also expect to enjoy surprise guest stars. Graae's Anatomy, according to press notes, is a show "where Jason sings from the heart, breathes through his nose, touches a nerve, and tickles the funny bone. It includes Jason’s somewhat twisted and sometimes even humorous take on songs by Bucchino, Sondheim, Mercer and more."
Jason Graae starred on Broadway in A Grand Night for Singing, Falsettos, Stardust and Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?, and appeared in the Hollywood Bowl concert version of The Music Man as Marcellus Washburn. His Off-Broadway credits include roles in Forever Plaid; Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh; Olympus On My Mind; and All in the Timing. Graae also starred in the Reprise! concerts of Of Thee I Sing!, Anything Goes and The Boys from Syracuse.
Jim Caruso's Cast Party — the weekly open-mic evening featuring stars from the worlds of Broadway and cabaret — will follow the Monday-night concert.
