On July 31 and Aug. 1 and 2, the famed singer will present Andrea Sings Astaire. Marcovicci will be accompanied by musical director Shelly Markham on piano, Jared Egan on bass, Gil Shaham on violin and Paul Neubauer on viola. Show time is 8:30 PM.
"In this intimate evening of cabaret," press notes state, "the legendary Andrea Marcovicci recreates a nostalgic world of 1930s black and white glamour, style and sophistication, capturing the unique allure of Fred Astaire, Hollywood’s debonair dancing star who introduced more popular standards than any other legend."
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."
