On Nov. 11 the singing actress will appear at Theatre Circle, 268 West 44th Street, to autograph copies of her new CD, "Winter Tracks." Egan will sign that new recording, which is available on the LML Music label, from 4-7 PM. For more information call (212) 391-7075. Nov. 12 and 13 will see the actress perform her All Knocked Up concert act — yes, she is pregnant — at the Metropolitan Room. Show times are Nov. 12 at 9:30 PM and Nov. 13 at 7 PM. She will be backed by musical director Christopher McGovern on piano. About her new show, Egan recently told Playbill.com, "[We will] feature songs from my new CD, funny 'road' tunes from the 80 concerts Chris and I have done this past year; and some 'new' material — known Broadway tunes that mean a whole new thing if you happen to be fat and pregnant singing them! The feel of the night is definitely not 'I'm expecting a baby' sentimental. We're going towards the ridiculous instead."
Susan Egan received Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations for her work in Beauty and the Beast, and her other theatre credits include Thoroughly Modern Millie, Cabaret, Triumph of Love, Putting It Together and Hello Again. Her debut solo recording was titled "So Far" and includes tunes from her many theatrical outings; her second solo disc is entitled "Coffee House."
