In a nod to the brassy broads who inspired her, Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita, last seen on Broadway in Dames at Sea, will bring her show BROAD to Birdland Jazz July 18 and 25.
Written by Margherita, the 7 PM shows will be directed by Lauren Bass with musical direction and arrangements by Brett Ryback. Jordan and Lauren Bass produce.
BROAD, according to press notes, is “an evening celebrating the controversial women of yesteryear. Women who knew how to serve it up and dish it out. Women who took no prisoners and gave no apologies. With heart, humor, and more than a dash of seduction, Margherita takes center stage delivering racy and rare gems from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s that landed many of the women who sang them in hot water…just the way they liked it.”
Birdland is located at 315 West 44th Street. For more information and tickets, visit leslimargherita.com.
