From Sept. 14-17 the talented chanteuse will perform an evening of songs drawn from her two decades of singing in clubs and concert halls around the world. Just Love, according to production notes, "celebrates the fragile human heart through songs, stories and poems and returns Andrea to her most spontaneous, witty and off-the-cuff self." Show time is 9 PM.
Marcovicci will also release her latest solo recording Sept. 20. Entitled "Andrea Sings Astaire," the CD includes the tunes from Marcovicci's recent act devoted to the life and songs of the late Fred Astaire. Among the gems Marcovicci interprets are "One for My Baby," "Cheek to Cheek" and "The Continental."
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. 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."
