Singer-actress Andrea Marcovicci comes to Chicago's newly renovated Symphony Center for a one-night performance, Mar. 9
Monday Night Out: A Cabaret Evening with Andrea Marcovicci is part of the "Symphony Center Presents" concert series, in association with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Ravinia Festival.
Marcovicci, who has been hailed as "a cabaret icon" by the New York Times, has been singing regular engagements for a decade at the Oak Room in NY's Algonquin Hotel. She made her Broadway debut with Howard Keel in Ambassador, performed Ophelia in Hamlet for Shakespeare in the Park and has appeared in numerous productions at the American Conservatory Theatre. Her films include The Front, in which she played Woody Allen's girlfriend. In addition, she played the title role in the ill-fated 1977 David Spangler-Christopher Gore musical, Nefertiti, which closed in its pre-Broadway tryout in Chicago.
Tickets for the 8 PM concert, $20-$100, are available by calling (312) 294-3000. ($100 tickets include a pre-concert dinner and post-concert party.)
