Wonder no more. After delving into the works of Irving Berlin, Frank Loesser and Jerome Kern as well as the songs associated with Fred Astaire, the World War II era and the silver screen, the singing actress will apply her renowned interpretative skills to the songbook of Rodgers and Hart.

Marcovicci will debut Marcovicci Sings Rodgers & Hart July 10-29 at the Empire Plush Room, located in the York Hotel in San Francisco. She will play Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8 PM and Sundays at 5 PM.

The songwriting team of Richard Rodgers (music) and Lorenz Hart (lyrics) penned the scores for A Connecticut Yankee, The Boys From Syracuse, On Your Toes, Babes in Arms, I Married an Angel, By Jupiter and Pal Joey. Among their hundreds of songs are such titles as "Mountain Greenery," "Ten Cents a Dance," "Spring Is Here," "Isn't It Romantic?," "Blue Moon," "My Romance," "Little Girl Blue," "I Wish I Were in Love Again," "Where or When," "My Funny Valentine," "Johnny One Note," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Falling in Love with Love," "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" and "There's a Small Hotel."

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."
