In a statement executive producer Lou Spisto said, "Hattox Hall provides us with a fantastic opportunity to invite very special artists to share their unique gifts with our audiences in an intimate setting. I’m delighted that Judy, who appears in a bravura dramatic role in Lost in Yonkers downstairs in the new White Theatre, will share her prodigious musical talents with us in our wonderful new hall upstairs."

Kaye won the Tony for her performance as Carlotta in the New York production of The Phantom of the Opera and also received a Theatre World Award for her work in On the Twentieth Century. Kaye also starred on Broadway in Ragtime, and her two most recent solo recordings are titled "Diva by Diva" and "Songs from the Silver Screen."
