Entitled Ménage – Relationships Redefined, the three-person revue also features the talents of Edd Clark and Sarah Rice (Sweeney Todd, Candide). Show times at the Manhattan venue are Jan. 18 at 4 PM and Jan. 21, 22 and 24 at 7:30 PM. The performers are accompanied by Bob Goldstone on the piano and Amy Ralske on cello.

The evening of song, according to press notes, celebrates "life, love, and the slings and arrows of the outrageousness of relationships. It showcases works by a variety of composers chosen from Stephen Sondheim, Ivor Novello, Nancy White, and Rodgers & Hart – and more."

Marni Nixon was most recently on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of Nine, and her other Main Stem credits include Follies, James Joyce's The Dead and The Girl in the Pink Tights. She played Aunt Alice in the film "I Think I Do" and Sister Sophia in the motion picture of "The Sound of Music." Nixon was also seen as Mother Abbess in the Hollywood Bowl's presentation of The Sound of Music.
