Singer Lorna Luft will share selections from the American Songbook and personal memories in an April 6-8 concert series at Feinstein’s/54 Below.

The daughter of Judy Garland and producer Sid Luft, and sister of Liza Minnelli, will sing favorites from throughout her career, and is expected to add new material for this concert, a spokesperson told Playbill. The playlist for the 7 PM concerts is still being finalized. Doors open at 5:15 PM and the concert begins at 7 PM each night.

Luft made her professional singing debut on TV’s The Judy Garland Show, and went on to featured roles on film and television, including Grease 2, Where the Boys Are ’84, and Murder, She Wrote. Luft technically made her Broadway debut in 1967 when she joined her mother onstage in her 1967 Palace Theatre concert, but she took the stage on her own in 1971 as a replacement as the female lead in the musical Promises, Promises. Other stage appearances include the 1981 national tour of They're Playing Our Song, the 1992 tour of Guys and Dolls, and both U.S. and U.K. tours of Irving Berlin's White Christmas. Her 1998 family memoir Me and My Shadows was adapted as an Emmy-winning TV miniseries.

Tickets for the April 6–8 concerts cost $50–$100 and can be ordered by clicking here.

Luft was a special guest performer on Playbill’s Broadway on the High Seas 8 cruise to the Caribbean. Playbill’s inaugural river cruise along the Rhône River in May 2017 is sold out, but cabins are available for the Rhine River cruise in August 2017, featuring Seth Rudetsky, Andréa Burns, Faith Prince, Terrence Mann, Charlotte d’Amboise, Santino Fontana, and more exciting talent. Playbill Travel is now also booking Broadway on the Danube River for November 2017, with celebrity guests to be announced. Visit PlaybillTravel.com for booking and information.
