Marcovicci, who is currently presenting "The Songs of Frank Loesser" at the Algonquin's Oak Room through Jan. 3, 2004, has canceled her appearances for the week of Dec. 2 due to a hemorrhaged vocal cord. Mac Rae will stand in for Marcovicci, offering "Songs for My Father," a tribute to film star Gordon MacRae. Marcovicci is expected to return to the plush cabaret room beginning Dec. 9. Following her "Frank Loesser" run, Marcovicci will then offer "The Songs of Cole Porter" through Jan. 24, also at the Algonquin.
Andrea Marcovicci starred on Broadway in the short-lived musical Ambassador and in Frank D. Gilroy's Any Given Day. Her screen credits include roles in "The Front," "Someone to Love," "Jack the Bear," "Who Is Henry Jaglom?," "The Water Engine" and "Trapper John, M.D." It has been the cabaret stage, however, where she has received the most acclaim. The singer-actress has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and in concert halls throughout the world, and she has spent over a decade performing at the Algonquin's Oak Room. Her solo albums are numerous and include "Marcovicci Loves Movies," "What Is Love?," "Just Kern," "December Songs," "New Words," "Live from London" and "Some Other Time."
