A new series celebrating women over 40 in the worlds of cabaret, theatre and songwriting begins Dec. 8 at New York's Triad Theater.
Simply titled Timeless Divas!, the premiere performance will be hosted by three-time Tony Award nominee Tovah (Yentl, Sarava, Lend Me a Tenor) Feldshuh. The singer-actress will be joined onstage by performers Phyllis Newman, Heather Mac Rae, Baby Jane Dexter and Marta Sanders; songwriters Gretchen Cryer, Nancy Ford and Carol Hall; and two original "Marvelettes," Denise Morgan and Wanda Houston. Shari Upbin will direct the evening, which will feature musical direction by Tracy Stark.
The Triad Theater is located in New York City at 158 West 72nd Street. There is a $20 cover charge and a $12 food/drink minimum. Call (212) 362 2590 for reservations.
A portion of the proceeds from Timeless Divas! will benefit the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative of the Actors Fund of America. Upcoming performances are scheduled for March 2, April 6 and May 18, 2003. Host and performers will be announced shortly.
