Because Michele's Aug. 15 and 16 shows sold out quickly, a third performance on Aug. 17 has been added. All shows begin at 9 PM.

Michele will be joined onstage by special guest John Lloyd Young, the Tony-winning Jersey Boys star who was also part of the recent Les Miz concerts directed by Richard Jay-Alexander. The latter also directs Michele's cabaret program, which features musical direction by Ben Toth.

Cabaretgoers can expect to hear Michele's renditions of "The Life of the Party," "Not for the Life of Me," "Touch Me," "Easy to Be Hard," "I Don't Know How to Love Him," "Waiting for Life," "Once Upon a Dream," "Someone Like You," "Not a Day Goes By" and "On My Own," among others.

Michele recently played several one-night engagements at Feinstein's at Loews Regency. That act was titled Once Upon a Dream.

Michele received a Drama Desk nomination for her performance as Wendla in Spring Awakening; she also created that role in the show's Off-Broadway mounting. The actress' other Broadway credits include Fiddler on the Roof, Ragtime and Les Misérables. Michele also appeared in a regional production of The Diary of Anne Frank.

Upright Cabaret in Mark's Restaurant, produced by Chris Isaacson and Shane Scheel, is located at 861 N. La Cienega Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA. For ticket information visit www.inticketing.com/evinfo.php?eventid=25950.
