Wilson, who was the first performer ever booked in the Chelsea cabaret, will offer a brand-new act beginning Dec. 12 at 7 PM. She will also play the intimate venue Dec. 19 at 7 PM and Dec. 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 9:30 PM. Wilson will be backed by musical director Christopher Denny on piano. Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Julie Wilson has performed in such musicals as Legs Diamond; Kiss Me, Kate; South Pacific, Bells Are Ringing, The Pajama Game, Kismet, Show Boat, Silk Stockings, Follies, Company and A Little Night Music. In the past few decades, however, it has been on the intimate cabaret stage where the singer-actress has triumphed. Her solo recordings include “Julie Wilson Sings the Cy Coleman Songbook,” “Julie Wilson Sings the Gershwin Songbook,” “Julie Wilson at the St. Regis,” “Live from the Russian Tea Room” and “My Old Flame.”
The 70-seat Hideaway Room is located within Helen's Restaurant, Cabaret & Piano Lounge at 169 Eighth Avenue, between 18th and 19th Streets. The new room features state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems designed by Shane Matthews.
There is a $25 cover charge as well as a $15 food/drink minimum for Wilson's shows. For reservations, call (212) 206-0609 or visit www.helensnyc.com.
