Tony Award-winning Producers and Will Rogers Follies star Cady Huffman will play jazz singer-songwriter Peggy Lee in her new nightclub act Miss Peggy Lee: In Her Own Words June 10 and 12 at The Green Room 42.
Show times are 7 PM.
Huffman collaborated with writer-director Will Nunziata on the show that captures Lee’s journey from her humble beginnings as Norma Deloris Egstrom of Jamestown, North Dakota, to becoming one of the biggest stars of the music world.
Music director Eugene Gwozdz leads a four-piece band for the evening that features Lee’s hit singles “Is That All There Is?” and “Fever,” as well as songs for which she wrote lyrics, including “I Love Being Here With You,” “I Don’t Know Enough About You,” “It’s a Good Day,” “Here’s to You,” and more.
Huffman is best known for her Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award-winning performance as Ulla in the original Broadway production of Mel Brooks' The Producers. She was Tony-nominated for creating the role of Ziegfield’s Favorite in the Tommy Tune-directed Will Rogers Follies, and has also appeared in La Cage aux Folles, The Nance, Chicago, Steel Pier, and Bob Fosse’s Big Deal. Her screen appearances include Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Good Wife, Difficult People, Blue Bloods, and a recurring judge on Iron Chef America. She is an Emmy nominee for her work on After Forever.
