Backed by the Andy Ezrin Trio — featuring Ezrin on piano, Paul Nowinski on bass and Ben Wittman on percussion — Donahue will celebrate the release of his new CD, "Strange Weather," which was produced by Grammy Award winner Peter Eldridge. Cabaretgoers can expect the singer to perform tunes by Irving Berlin, Alec Wilder, Suzanne Vega, Jay Leonhart and Harold Arlen. Jack Donahue was seen Off-Broadway this season in The Audience and was also featured with the Duke Ellington Orchestra at Birdland for a celebration of the 2005 Harold Arlen Centennial. His theatrical credits include the world premiere of The Ballad of Little Jo as well as What the World Needs Now, Of Melodrama and Murder and Floyd Collins. A MAC Award winner, Donahue can also be heard on the new PS Classics Inc. release "Fine and Dandy."
