At 8 PM the acclaimed chanteuse will present her most-requested concert act, I'll Be Seeing You. . . Love Songs of WWII. Marcovicci's two-act program features the actress backed by a chamber orchestra. Shelly Markham is musical director. The idea for I'll Be Seeing You — which features such classic tunes as "Sentimental Journey," "We'll Meet Again," "The White Cliffs of Dover," "Skylark" and "Berkeley Square" — was originally suggested to the cabaret veteran by long-time family friend Walter Kronkite. Marcovicci recently revised the acclaimed show to include "As Time Goes By," "Heart and Soul," "Say It (Over and Over Again)" and "Lili Marlene."

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."

Marcovicci will return to the Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room May 15-26. She will once again offer her just love. . . By Request program, where audiences members will have the opportunity to hear the singing actress perform the songs they most enjoy from her expansive repertoire.

Town Hall is located at 123 W. 43rd Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues). For tickets call (212) 307-4100 or visit www.the-townhall-nyc.org.
