Entitled Moments Like This, the duo will play the famed jazz club April 6 at 7 PM. In Moments Like This, press notes state, audiences will have a chance to "meet Broadway and television star Linda Lavin up-close and personal as she recalls her roots in the theater, her love of torch songs, and a life-long obsession with the big bands of the 1940's. Linda's varied musical choices range from Cole Porter to Trisha Yearwood, and the musical relationship with pianist/singer Billy Stritch only adds to the party atmosphere this hostess-with-the-mostess exudes."
