Leung will offer Who Loves 'Ya, Baby? at 7 PM. The evening features direction by Alan Muraoka and musical direction by Gary Adler. Expect songs from the '70s that influenced Leung's childhood.

"Meet Judy and Stephen Leung — my parents — who immigrated to this country in the 1970s from China, and used TV and vinyl records to learn English and become American," press notes state. "It's a celebration of THEIR music, so get ready to hustle, bus stop, and boogie-woogie your way back in time as I go through my Dad's incredible '70s vinyl collection."

Telly Leung, who was a member of the final cast of Broadway's Rent, made his Main Stem bow in the revival of Flower Drum Song and then appeared in the revival of Stephen Sondheim's Pacific Overtures. He spent a year playing Boq in the Chicago production of Wicked, and his other theatrical credits include Zanna, Don't!; Thoroughly Modern Millie; The King and I; Jesus Christ Superstar; Children of Eden; Sweeney Todd; and Godspell. Leung can be heard on the "Wall to Wall Stephen Sondheim" recording, and his debut EP is titled "Getaway." The actor is also a co-founder of the fledgling Jaradoa Theatre Company and was seen in the Philadelphia Theater Company's production of M. Butterfly.

The Laurie Beechman Theatre is located within the West Bank Cafe on 42nd Street and 9th Avenue. Tickets are $20 plus a $15 food/drink minimum; for reservations call (212) 695-6909.
